“Liverpool are looking to the future” – Alan Hutton believes Liverpool will ‘definitely’ sign exciting 19-year-old Fulham sensation this summer.
Former EPL star Alan Hutton has insisted Liverpool will ‘definitely’ complete the transfer of Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho in the summer.
The former Scotland international, who previously plied his trade for Premier League clubs like Tottenham Hotspur and Aston Villa, has stated that the Reds are extremely keen on the 19-year-old.
Hutton insisted Carvalho would be a key part of Klopp’s side in the future alongside the duo of Diogo Jota and new signing Luis Diaz.
The former Rangers right-back told Football Insider:“Yeah. Another very exciting young player. It just shows you Liverpool are looking to the future. Their front three have been absolutely tremendous for the last couple of seasons but that’s going to come to an end at some point.”
He added:“So bringing in Diaz, looking at Carvalho, it’s the future of Liverpool’s front three with Jota. It’s something that they nearly got over the line and they didn’t quite get there. But definitely, I think they’ll be returning to complete that transfer in the summer.”
Hutton also believes that Liverpool are getting set for the future and views the Young England international as an ideal player for years to come.
However, according to recent reports, Liverpool are increasingly confident of agreeing to a pre-contract deal. The attacking midfielder is set to join the club this summer after failing to complete a move in January.
