Liverpool reject offer from RB Leipzig for 20-year-old starlet



Liverpool reject offer from RB Leipzig for 20-year-old starlet

Liverpool only want loan offers for Fabio Carvalho, hence rejected an offer from RB Leipzig

As per the Times (subscription required), Liverpool will resist permanent offers for Fabio Carvalho, hence rejected an offer from German side RB Leipzig.

Carvalho, who hardly played much in his first season at Anfield, got rousing feedback from the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp during the press conference before the game against Southampton.

The report states that a lot of Premier League clubs have enquired about the availability of the former Fulham attacking midfielder. The 20-year-old has shown time and again that he is a very able playmaker and Leipzig could be a good place for him to hone his skills.

But Liverpool see him as a future starter, therefore will only entertain any loan offers. Keeping that in mind, the idea might be to let him go to a club where playing time is guaranteed for the duration of a season and then judge whether he can make a difference here or not.

Although Leipzig made a permanent offer and that is why it was rejected, the Reds must make a deal with the German to take him on loan. Marco Rose’s team will play Champions League football next season, hence the experience gained there would be uplifting for the player.

The 20-year-old’s lack of game time at Anfield was a puzzle to most people. Klopp used to send him for substitute appearances for the last few seconds as if to insult the talent he has or just for the sake of racking up appearances for him (21).

Carvalho is a way more talented player than that. He deserves to play a lot of football at the age he is, be it in a Liverpool shirt or elsewhere.

If the idea of loaning him out is combined with the plan of offering him regular game time in the following season, then it’s okay. Otherwise, it would not make sense and that may discourage the player as well.

Liverpool have reportedly entered talks to sign Manu Kone from Bundesliga side Borussia Monchengladbach, in a deal that could cost €40-45m.

Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain are also keen on the 22-year-old Frenchman but Jurgen Klopp’s team appear to be leading the race.

According to German outlet Bild, Liverpool have been in contact with Kone’s representatives and have expressed their interest in a summer transfer.

Kone has registered 31 appearances for Borussia Monchengladbach this season, who finished 10th in the Bundesliga.

Borussia Monchengladbach want €40-45m for Kone, who is under contract until 2025, while the German club have the option to extend his deal for a further year.

It is believed that Borussia Monchengladbach want to use the fee they receive for Kone to help fund moves for new players in the summer window.

It could be a busy summer for Liverpool, who have been linked to several players as they look to return to the top four after a disappointing 2022-23 campaign.

The Reds are looking to bring in two central midfielders this summer after withdrawing from the race to sign Jude Bellingham.

Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister is expected to swap the south coast for Anfield and they have also opened talks to sign Nice’s Khephren Thuram – although the the deal could be complicated by Sir Jim Ratcliffe’s potential takeover of United.

Liverpool had been linked to Chelsea’s Mason Mount but it appears that United are now favourites to land his signature.
