Determined RB Leipzig risk Liverpool wrath by launching a secret transfer plan for Fabio Carvalho that Jurgen Klopp blocked

RB Leipzig are showing strong determination to secure the permanent signing of Fabio Carvalho, despite having their initial offer rejected by Liverpool. Carvalho, who joined Liverpool from Fulham for £7.7 million a year ago, has only managed to score three goals in 21 appearances.

 There is a possibility that he might be loaned out for the 2023/24 season, as Liverpool’s manager Jurgen Klopp is not keen on selling him. Along with West Ham, Burnley, and Brentford, RB Leipzig is one of the clubs interested in acquiring the services of the talented Portuguese Under-21 international.

RB Leipzig, under the management of Marco Rose, made an initial permanent offer to sign Carvalho, displaying their intention to complete their transfer dealings early. 

However, Liverpool rejected Leipzig’s proposal but expressed willingness to allow Carvalho to leave on loan in order to gain consistent playing opportunities. Nevertheless, according to German publication BILD, Leipzig remains persistent in their pursuit of securing a permanent transfer for Carvalho, indicating that they are not ready to abandon their efforts.

According to the report, RB Leipzig’s aim is to provide Carvalho with more playing time and create a comfortable environment for him, with the hope that he will develop a desire to stay with the club in the long term beyond his initial year-long loan. 

Despite the potential risk of straining the relationship between the two clubs, Leipzig is optimistic that their good rapport with Liverpool could aid them in securing Carvalho on a permanent basis.

Carvalho made a strong impression at the beginning of his Liverpool tenure, notably scoring his first goal in a remarkable 9-0 victory over Bournemouth and netting a late winner in a thrilling match against Newcastle. However, his position in the squad suffered as Curtis Jones and Harvey Elliott emerged, resulting in reduced playing time for Carvalho during the latter half of the season following the World Cup.

Carvalho’s most recent start for Liverpool dates back to the 1-0 FA Cup victory over Wolves in January. In anticipation of Liverpool’s final Premier League match against Southampton in May, Klopp discussed Carvalho’s future and acknowledged the potential for him to leave on loan. This suggests that Klopp is open to the idea of Carvalho gaining valuable experience elsewhere in order to continue his development.

“There’s a possibility that he will go on loan, we’ll see,” Klopp said. “This was not Fabio’s best year in his career but it might have been his most important. No player has impressed me more than Fabio. It is true. This very talented boy came here with big dreams and big expectations. It was okay in the beginning but didn’t work out (later in the season). His work ethic will give him a fantastic career.

“He trained and got nothing (in terms of team selection). His reactions in a row, I never saw before.”

RB Leipzig has a history of collaborating with Liverpool on several transfers in the past. The notable example is Naby Keita’s significant transfer to Anfield in 2018, which gained considerable attention. There is a possibility that another player could follow a similar path this summer. 

Dominik Szoboszlai has emerged as a potential target for Liverpool in recent reports, with Klopp reportedly showing a strong desire to sign the talented attacker. Szoboszlai has garnered attention with his impressive performances in the Bundesliga, making him an appealing prospect for Liverpool.
