Liverpool‘s new signing Fabio Carvalho has expressed his excitement for the pre-season schedule ahead and named the two positions he wants to play in at Anfield.
The Reds missed out on his signature in January, but he was announced in May as a new Liverpool player.
He cost the Merseyside club a measly £7.7m in a vastly inflated market, and at just 19-years-old is keen to improve under boss Jurgen Klopp in the coming years.
It remains to be seen where Carvalho fits into Klopp’s setup, with suggestions he will initially be considered a forward with a long-term view to switching to midfield.
But in his first interview with LFCTV, Carvalho himself has detailed the two positions he is most comfortable in.
“Obviously at Fulham, I played in more of the 10 role. Here it just depends on what formation that we play.
“But I also fancy the wing, because I’m creative enough to go one vs. one and create things.
“Like you said, I’m more than comfortable playing anywhere, but those two positions are where I want to play.”
Carvalho excelled for Fulham last season as they won promotion to the Premier League, scoring ten goals and providing eight assists, forming a formidable partnership with Aleksandar Mitrovic.
He will be one of 19 players set to join the Reds squad at Kirkby tomorrow as they prepare for the new season, before jetting off to Thailand to face Manchester United in a friendly.
It will be a swift introduction for Carvalho, who is “looking forward to every single bit” of the summer schedule.
“I’m just very excited to get started,” he added.
“Obviously pre-season isn’t the most fun thing about football, but it’s something you have to do and get over and done with.
“It’s just a good way to get to know everyone, get to know the players and I just can’t wait to get started.
“I’m looking forward to every single bit of pre-season and the years to come.”
