Liverpool star set for medical after agreeing Bundesliga move

With the transfer window having officially been open for more than a week now, Liverpool are yet to complete their first signing of the summer. 

The Reds endured a tricky campaign last season and missed out on a place in next term’s Champions League after finishing fifth in the Premier League.

That will undoubtedly have prompted manager Jurgen Klopp to want to bolster his squad ahead of the new season, but it appears that the Reds have now agreed to let one of their young stars leave.

According to Football Insider, young midfielder Fabio Carvalho is set for a medical with German side RB Leipzig ahead of a season-long loan move to the club.

The report claims that the 20-year-old will join up with Leipzig, who came third in the Bundesliga last season, in an effort to ensure more regular football.

Carvalho joined Liverpool from Fulham last summer having impressed for the Cottagers, but he only made 21 senior appearances during his first season at Anfield, starting just four Premier League matches.

With that in mind, the Reds have decided to allow the Portuguese to leave on loan in the hope that he will play more regularly for Leipzig.

The report claims that Leipzig had a £10 million permanent offer for the player rejected last month, but talks have been ongoing between the two clubs since then and an agreement over a loan switch has now been finalised.

The deal to take Carvalho to Germany doesn’t include an option-to-buy clause, the report claims, but a second season-long loan spell with the Bundesliga club has already been discussed during initial conversations.

During his first season with Liverpool, Carvalho scored three goals including his first for the club during a 9-0 win over Bournemouth back in August.

Previously, the youngster scored 12 goals and provided eight assists in 44 matches across all competitions for former side Fulham.
