West Ham are making moves to bring Fabio Carvalho to the London Stadium on loan next season according to a number of media reports,
The websites of fellow Premier League sides Brentford and newly-promoted Burnley have confirmed that enquires have been made about a possible temporary deal for the youngster, giving meaning David Moyes serious competition.
It is also believed that RB Leipzig are preparing a second bid for Carvalho after their initial proposal of £10m was rejected by the Merseyside club, with Liverpool said to be unsure whether they want to let the player leave on a permanent deal.
Carvalho’s progress at Fulham soon captured the attention of several high-profile clubs, and Liverpool signed the 20-year-old in a cut-price deal last summer.
But while the youngster had a few bright moments early in the 2022/23 season, overall he had a campaign to forget and had become a bit-part player for Liverpool by the end of the Premier League .
Carvalho is a versatile midfielder who can play centrally and on the left flank. And such an attribute makes him a utility man and an attractive target for his suitors. As for how he will fit at West Ham, the 20-year-old can compete with Said Benrahma and Lucas Paqueta. Also if Paqueta takes up a deeper role following Declan Rice’s departure, Carvalho could easily fit in on the left flank.
It will be interesting to see how this pans out
