NewsHarvey Elliott excited by summer arrival of Fabio Carvalho
Harvey Elliott is excited by the prospect of linking up with Fabio Carvalho again.
Carvalho will officially join Liverpool on July 1 and become teammates with Elliott for a second time after the pair bonded as academy players at Fulham.
A Portugal U21 international, Carvalho was a key figure for the Cottagers in 2021-22 as they won the Championship title and secured an immediate return to the Premier League.
The forward scored 10 goals and recorded eight assists in 36 league appearances.
“He was my favourite player to play with as a youngster, to be honest, at Fulham,” Elliott told the Liverpool Echo.
“Me and him had a great connection, on the pitch as well as off the pitch and I will definitely look after him when he arrives. But, to be honest, I don’t even think I will have to do that, he will just fit in perfectly with the rest of the squad.
“He’s got everything in him, every attribute you can think of, and that’s why Liverpool have signed him. So I am very excited to see what he can bring to this team, as well as all the fans, and I am sure he will show them very quickly.
“So I am just very excited to see him again after three years or so and I am just very excited to share the pitch with him again.”
