Leeds United target Fabio Carvalho keen on Fulham exit as he eyes next step

Fulham forward and Leeds United target Fabio Carvalho is set to leave Craven Cottage once his contract expires, according to The Sun.

The 19-year-old has less than six months left on his deal at the club and will be available for a compensation fee in the summer.

Carvalho’s brother, who’s also his official representative, is being assisted by super agent Jorge Mendes as the Portugal-born England Under-18 international is looking to make the step up in his career.

It is understood that Liverpool are weighing up a £5million offer for the youngster who’s also being tracked by West Ham.

Sign him up

While Leeds are in no urgent need of an attacker, they would certainly want one in a few years and Carvalho could come clutch for them then.

At 19, he’s already taken the Championship by storm and thus far, has scored 39 career goals in all competitions in his fledgling career.

Given the fact that Liverpool are also keen on his services is only an indicator as to what a prolific prospect he is.

He has been billed as an “incredible” talent and we cannot wait to see just how well he would fare in the Premier League.

Carvalho is someone who’s known for his movement and his ability to draw defenders out of position.

This makes him a nightmare to mark and he could be Patrick Bamford’s long-term successor at Elland Road if he keeps progressing as he has been over the last few years.
