Liverpool has announced the signing of teenage forward Fabio Carvalho from Fulham.
After agreeing to personal terms and passing a physical, the 19-year-old came close to joining the Reds on deadline day in January, but the deal fell through.
The Reds, on the other hand, stated on Monday that they had reached a deal to hire Carvalho on July 1.
Liverpool has paid £5 million for Carvalho and agreed to a five-year contract with the Portugal Under-21 international, representing England at the junior level.
In 36 appearances, he scored ten goals and added eight assists to help Fulham win the Championship and promote to the Premier League in the 2021-22 season.
Carvalho, born in Lisbon, rose through the Fulham junior systems to make 44 appearances for the club, including four Premier League games two seasons ago.
In a message to Fulham supporters posted on the club’s official website, Carvalho said:
“I want to thank you for everything they’ve done for me, on and off the pitch.
“On the pitch, they’ve been singing my name and cheering me on, and off the pitch, they’re always greeting me.
“Even my family has fans going up to them, saying hello, making me happy.
“There’s been ups and downs this season, but I’ve had some great messages from great fans.
“I just want to say a big thank you to all the Fulham fans, as without them, I wouldn’t be in the position I am today, so thank you so much.”
On Sunday, Liverpool rounded off their Premier League season with a 3-1 win over Wolves.
Though that was not enough to pip Manchester City to the title on a dramatic final day.
Jurgen Klopp’s side faces Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Paris next Saturday.
