Aston Villa are apparently among the clubs interested in signing Liverpool youngster Fabio Carvalho this summer.
The 20-year-old joined Liverpool from Fulham for £5 million (The Athletic) last year and he came in with a lot of hype. He even played a fair bit at the start of the season, but things changed after the World Cup.
Aston Villa are expected to make some big moves in this summer’s transfer window.
Unai Emery completely changed the club’s fortunes after replacing Steven Gerrard. He took them from the relegation places to a seventh-place finish in the Premier League, which is an extraordinary achievement.
Villa will play in Europe next season, and they need to add more quality to their squad. Among all the names linked with a move to Emery’s side is young Carvalho now.
Ben Jacobs has claimed that Liverpool don’t really want to sell the 20-year-old this summer, but there is a chance they will allow him to leave on loan. Aston Villa, Wolves and RB Leipzig are all said to be admirers of Carvalho.
Jacobs wrote: “Schmadtke will come in having to deal with plenty of interest in Fabio Carvalho. Liverpool don’t want to sell but may be open to a loan deal.
“There are Premier League clubs who admire Carvalho, including Aston Villa and Wolves, whilst RB Leipzig have already had an offer rejected to buy the 20-year-old. Liverpool are calm about the situation and their summer.”
