It has been known for some time that Liverpool are signing Fulham star Fabio Carvalho.

Fulham confirmed Carvalho’s exit a couple of weeks ago, and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has now provided some details.

“By the way, the first signing will be Fabio Carvalho: the official announcement is coming in the next few days, Fulham will receive £5m plus £2.7m add-ons,” he told Caught Offside.

“Liverpool want to keep him in the first team, a loan is not planned as of now.”

Origi latest

AC Milan continue to work on the signing of Reds frontman Divock Origi.

Origi is out of contract this summer, and he will leave the club to secure regular first team football.

According to Tuttomercatoweb, Milan are ‘edginng’ closer to completing the signing of Origi, begining talks some time ago.

Danjuma possibility

Liverpool have been handed a potential boost in their reported bid to land Villarreal star Arnaut Danjuma.

The Dutchman has been linked with the Reds for some time now, and according to the player’s agent, the winger could become available, despite Villarreal only signing him last summer.

“There is a 50% chance that Danjuma will come out this summer,” he told Radio Castellon.
