Paul Merson thinks Liverpool have made a “fantastic” signing

Paul Merson has been speaking out about the transfer window, where he made a big claim about Liverpool and Fabio Carvalho.

What’s the Story?

Well, a Sky Sports soccer Saturday pundit believes Liverpool have grabbed the 19-year-old’s rank among the top five signs of the summer so far – a huge statement, to say the least.

Speaking to Sports Worm, Merson said: “Fabio Carvalho is not someone who will start week one for Liverpool, but this man is a top talent and played a big part in Fulham’s promotion bid last season. I think other managers who do this type of signing might look at and think, ‘Why didn’t we get him?’ Because he’s a brilliant talent.”

We can’t help but agree.

Clearly, the 54-year-old is aware that Carvalho is unlikely to become an immediate starter at Anfield, but like Harvey Elliott, there are foundations for him to make an impact soon.

With someone like Jurgen Klopp, who coached gems like Mario Götz and Trent Alexander-Arnold to world beaters, there’s no reason the Portugal under-21 international can’t shine at Merseyside.

Where Liverpool can use Fabio Carvalho

Interestingly, there are several ways in which Klopp could use Carvalho next season.

Last season – as Transfermark reveals – the teenager was positioned in an attacking midfield role at left side alongside Marco Silva.

Carvalho’s 11 goals – he also provided eight assists – mainly featured him cutting from the left side of midfield, just as Philippe Coutinho did.

Therefore, we think Klopp will use his new recruit in the central midfield role on the left, or on the left side of the attack.

Wherever he plays under the German, we are confident Carvalho will become a big hit at Liverpool.
