Honours: FA Community Shield (2022)
Liverpool added the exciting talents of Fabio Carvalho to their attacking ranks in July 2022.
A flexible forward who allies an eye for goal with a clever creative spark, Carvalho emerged as one of the Championship’s outstanding prospects prior to signing for the Reds.
He was recruited by Jürgen Klopp after starring for Fulham as they won the second-tier title to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.
Born on August 30, 2002 in the Lisbon region of Portugal, Carvalho progressed through the youth ranks at Craven Cottage having joined the London club at the age of eight.
His impressive form in 2021-22 – he scored 11 goals and registered eight assists in 38 matches across all competitions – earned Carvalho a debut for Portugal U21s in March 2022, after he had previously represented England at youth international level.
Having made his senior bow for Fulham in September 2020, Carvalho would go on to record four appearances and one goal in the Premier League towards the conclusion of a 2020-21 campaign that ended in relegation.
He then became a first-team regular at the start of 2021-22 and was a driving force behind Marco Silva’s side’s success as they won the Championship with 90 points and 106 goals.
Carvalho made his competitive debut for the Reds in the 3-1 Community Shield victory over Manchester City to begin 2022-23, before being handed a first appearance in the Premier League a week later against former club Fulham.
