And Carvalho fits into that category.

The attacking midfielder has six caps to his name for England’s U-18s already.

West Ham could sign Fabio Carvalho

The Sun claims that the teenager has rejected the offer of a new deal to remain at Craven Cottage and will now most likely leave the west London outfit for nothing in the summer.

Now, West Ham will undoubtedly be monitoring his situation. With Andriy Yarmolenko set to leave in the summer and Manuel Lanzini facing an uncertain future at the London Stadium, the addition of another attacking midfielder could very well be needed.

And Carvalho would be an exceptional addition for the Hammers. What a star he is!

Football League World describe him as an incredible talent.

Carvalho has racked up 33 goals and 19 assists in 82 games for Fulham’s youth teams (Transfermarkt).

He has made a huge impression for the senior team as well with four goals and one assist in 12 games.

The teenager really is an incredibly gifted player. He has dazzled with his precocity over the past year or so. The Fulham ace can play anywhere along the front-line and would be a huge coup for West Ham.
