The transfer of Fabio Carvalho from Fulham to Liverpool is expected to result in yet another setback for the player. At the moment, the young playwright is having a difficult time.
When Fabio Carvalho joined Liverpool in 2022, it appeared as though he would be a surefire winner for the club. As one of the most promising talents in English football, he had just finished performing exceptionally well in the Championship with Fulham, which led to the club’s promotion.
A contract was reached by the Reds several months in advance in order to acquire him, and it appeared to be an excellent commercial decision. This feeling persisted throughout a preseason that was full of promise and an auspicious beginning to the Premier League season.
Carvalho, on the other hand, never really got going. No significant progress was made, and he was unable to establish himself as a candidate for a spot in the first squad during a period in which Liverpool was experiencing a lot of difficulties.
In some respects, that was not his fault; when things aren’t going well, Jurgen Klopp has a tendency to go with more recognized quantities that are already established.
The ascent of Curtis Jones toward the conclusion of the season, on the other hand, demonstrated how far behind Carvalho was and how he had failed to capitalize on his opportunity to force his way into the team.
Over the course of the summer, it seemed as though a transfer of some kind was going to take place, and it was a loan to RB Leipzig.
And once more, Carvalho has been the victim of misfortune. Additionally, Leipzig utilized the services of Xavi Simons, a Dutch player who was in outstanding form during the previous season, on loan from Paris Saint-Germain.
He has taken that to Germany and, in essence, compelled the young player from Liverpool to step down from his position.
This season, Carvalho has only played thirteen percent of the total minutes that are available to him. With Leipzig, he is not contributing in any way, as he does not have any goals or assists to his name.
In other words, it is yet another setback, and there is going to be yet another one in the near future. Bryan Zaragoza, who currently plays for Granada, is reportedly on Leipzig’s list of potential targets for a new attacking player to be signed in January, according to The Athletic.
Should he happen to show up, Carvalho would have to contend with the presence of another player, which is something that will most certainly reduce the number of minutes he plays.
In addition, it would be a disservice to Liverpool. It is possible that Carvalho will return to Anfield in the summer with a damaged reputation and a worth that is at an all-time low if he is to play even less playing time.
In addition to the fact that selling him would feel like a waste of time and a terrible choice of timing, the likelihood of him playing for the Reds is extremely low.
The ideal scenario would be for him to obtain a second loan, but this time one that is more suitable to his needs. The fact remains, however, that this is a cycle that any player can find themselves into, and it is not one that typically results in success.
It is therefore hoped that Carvalho will be able to make a breakthrough during the second half of this season and that he will be able to force his way into Leipzig’s plans. There is little doubt that Liverpool will be keeping their fingers crossed.
