Wolves could be set to make a move for Liverpool’s 20-year-old midfielder, Fabio Carvalho, on loan this summer. Dean Jones, a reliable transfer insider, has suggested that Wanderers boss, Julen Lopetegui, is eyeing the young talent for his potential to improve under the Spanish manager’s guidance.
Carvalho has struggled to make an impression at Anfield this season, starting just four games in the Premier League. However, his performances last season for Fulham have caught Lopetegui’s attention. The midfielder helped guide the Cottagers back into the top flight, scoring ten goals and registering eight assists.
Although Carvalho remains committed to Liverpool, a loan move could be the ideal opportunity to showcase his abilities and continue his development. Wolves appear to be a suitable destination, given their Portuguese influence and their desire to improve their squad next season.
Jurgen Klopp has lauded Carvalho’s talents, describing him as “special”. But with Liverpool looking to bounce back after a difficult season, top-level recruitment is likely to become a priority, which could see Carvalho’s opportunities further limited.
Ultimately, a year’s loan spell in the West Midlands could prove to be the making of Carvalho’s career, allowing him to regain the confidence and form that made him a standout player in last year’s Championship.
