Liverpool midfielder Fabio Carvalho failed to shine during his Fulham days at Anfield. He did not even get a start in the second half of the season and spent more and more time off the bench, and a loan move next season was hinted at.
RB Leipzig initially wanted to acquire the 20-year-old midfielder on a permanent transfer, but Liverpool have not given up on the player’s potential and rejected a permanent transfer or buy option.
Discussions were held for a loan transfer, and now the terms were agreed and the transfer was finalized until June 2024, reported Fabrizio Romano, an Italian journalist. The transfer will be officially concluded next week.

For the young midfielder, who is likely to see even less playing time next season as Liverpool looks to further strengthen its midfield, RB Leipzig, with its reputation for development, is an appropriate destination and a club where rapid growth is expected.
The Portuguese U-21 midfielder will spend the 2023-24 season working in Germany, but how will he develop in the Red Bull Group?
