Fabio Carvalho to Liverpool: Squad number & Klopp's praise



Fabio Carvalho has, on Sunday, finally been officially unveiled as the latest addition to Premier League giants' Liverpool's squad.

Following months of reports pointing towards the Portuguese prodigy being primed to take his talents to Anfield, as much was confirmed a short time ago, in a series of posts across the Reds'  social media platforms.

'Fabio Carvalho has today been officially unveiled as a Liverpool player after completing his move at the AXA Training Centre,' a statement revealed.

Carvalho's move to Merseyside, of course, comes after the 19-year-old piqued attentions across the English football landscape this past season.

The gifted attacking midfielder played a starring role in Fulham's return to the Premier League, racking up a head-turning 10 goals and eight assists across 36 Championship appearances.

In turn, it did not come as a massive surprise to hear of Jurgen Klopp lavishing praise on the latest addition to his ranks at Anfield on Sunday.

When drawn on Carvalho's talents during an interview with LiverpoolFC.com, the German tactician was not shy in highlighting the youngster's standout traits, gushing:

"Itโ€™s great to finally be able to welcome Fabio and to introduce him properly to our supporters. What a talent he is, hey? A player who can bring a stadium to its feet.

"He puts his personality into his performances, he is confident and adventurous with the ball, and he wants to make things happen. He is a versatile player for sure and is very much an attacking threat with his creativity and dynamism."

Elsewhere, Carvalho's squad number for the season ahead has too been revealed, with the Portuguese expected to take his place amongst the first-team setup at Liverpool with immediate effect, donning the 28 shirt:
