Second Liverpool attacker set to leave this summer after just 12 months amid squad overhaul

The Reds are ready to make big changes this summer

Liverpool are ready to let young attacker Fabio Carvalho leave on loan this summer as they look to reshape their squad for next season, despite signing the forward just 12 months ago.

The Reds have endured a difficult campaign to date, currently sitting eighth and outside any European places for next season, although they do still have eight games to change their fortunes.

Nonetheless, there is expected to be major change this summer, with additions expected in defence and midfield, as well as a backup goalkeeper.

And one of those that could well be a victim of the overhaul is young attacker Carvalho, who has struggled to nail down a spot since his arrival from Fulham last summer.

The Portuguese attacker has only managed 300 Premier League minutes this season, though he has found the net on two occasions in that time (including a late winner against Newcastle United).

However, he has not played more than three minutes since October, and his future at the club seems very much in doubt.

Roberto Firmino has already confirmed that he will be leaving the club when his contract runs out at the end of the season, but with all of Diogo Jota, Darwin Nunez, Mo Salah, Cody Gakpo and Luis Diaz ahead of Carvalho in the pecking order, he is unlikely to see any significant game time next season either.

As a result, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that Carvalho will be free to leave this summer, but only on loan, as he looks to restart his career away from Anfield.

It remains to be seen where his long term future lies, with the Reds attacking line well equipped and midfield additions Jurgen Klopp’s no.1 priority this summer, a move that could leave Carvalho very much on the outside looking in.
