West Ham to swoop in for Fabio Carvalho

The Daily Mail claims that with the 18-year-old refusing to sign a new deal, the Hammers could test the water with Fulham by making an offer.

David Moyes has already brought a whole host of talented youngsters to the London Stadium this summer.

Carvalho would be another one to add to that list.

West Ham won’t have things all their own way, however, with Porto, Leeds and Norwich also interested in acquiring the 18-year-old’s services.
