The report goes on to say that neither Liverpool FC or Fulham want Carvalho’s transfer fee to go to an independent tribunal – something that happened when the Reds signed Harvey Elliott from the Cottagers.

Football Insider claim that Carvalho is eager to move to Anfield after the teenager completed a medical at Liverpool FC before agreeing to a long-term deal only for the deal to fall through at the last minute.

The website go on to reveal that Leeds United, Southampton and West Ham United are also interested in Carvalho following the Fulham midfielder’s impressive performances in the Championship in the current campaign.

Posting on Twitter over the weekend, Romano wrote: “Liverpool have new direct contact scheduled with Fabio Carvalho’s camp and Fulham in February – both clubs still working to find a solution after deal collapsed on Deadline Day.”
