Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho will join Liverpool in the summer transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano.

It was reported that the Portugal under-21 international was poised to join Jurgen Klopp’s side before being loaned back to the Championship club for the remainder of the season.

However, a deal for the teenager, who has scored seven times in 19 appearances this term, failed to materialise before the winter window closed.

Since then there have been rumours that Man Utd could hijack their deal, while there were rumours of interest in Carvalho from Real Madrid and AC Milan.

He has eight goals and seven assists so far this season in 31 matches in all competitions but he’s experienced a small dip in form since his move to Liverpool fell through.

The Portuguese is out of contract at the end of the season, but the Reds will pay a £5m fee plus £2.7m in add ons to sign him in the summer, as per transfer journalist Romano.

Carvalho has already completed his medical and will pen a five-year contract at Anfield. There is no plan to loan him back to Fulham next season.

Meanwhile, Jurgen Klopp has ruled Liverpool out of the running to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

Haaland is extremely likely to be on the move this summer when his £68m release clause becomes active at the end of the season.

Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all been linked with the Norwegian international.

However, Reds manager Klopp insists he will not try to bring the 21-year-old to Anfield in the summer transfer window.

Klopp told Bild: “No chance! We won’t be going there. The numbers involved are just crazy – we’ll be having nothing to do with it.

“To be honest, I don’t want anything to do with it. It’s not fun”.
