Liverpool and Fulham had agreed upon a 5 million pound deal for Carvalho late on Monday evening.

However, Liverpool have not given up. According to journalist David Lynch, Liverpool are looking to sign the youngster over the summer, when his contract expires.

According to the Englishmen,

Fulham will be due compensation for developing the player but, if the two clubs can agree a fee, they can avoid going through a tribunal process.

While according to reliable journalist Fabrizio Romano, Carvalho had even undergone a medical, but the papers were not complete.

However, according to reports, the player is very keen on joining Liverpool. Hence getting a deal for him over the summer should not be an issue for the Reds.
