The real reason why Liverpool failed to complete the signing of Fulham Youngster on  Deadline day.

Liverpool failed to complete the signing of Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho after running out of time on the last day of the January transfer window.

The two clubs were locked in negotiations over Carvalho for much of Monday after Fulham rejected an initial £5m offer for the attacking midfielder, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

Fulham finally accepted an £8.4m bid for the 19-year-old, who has scored seven goals in 19 appearances for the Championship side according to the Guardians.

As part of the agreement, Liverpool were ready to send Carvalho back to Fulham on loan until the end of the campaign.

According to The Independent, Carvalho passed a medical with Liverpool but personal terms and further paperwork still needed to be completed minutes before the English transfer window closed.

Carvalho could be the second Fulham youngster to join Liverpool in recent seasons after Harvey Elliott, who left Craven cottage for Anfield in 2019.

Liverpool will be hopeful of agreeing a deal for Carvalho, having allowed defender Neco Williams to join Fulham on loan for the remainder of the season.

Liverpool’s failure to sign the youngster before the deadline day means the club made just one major signing in January, with winger Luis Diaz joining in a £37.5m move from FC Porto.
