have been reacting to claims suggesting that the club could make a move for youngster Fabio Carvalho.

The 18-year-old has recently emerged into the first-team plans at Craven Cottage, even managing to get a goal in the Premier League in a game against Southampton towards the end of last season, and played almost the entirety of their first game of the season against Middlesbrough this weekend.

A report in the Daily Mail over the weekend has claimed that are ‘fighting to hang on’ to his services as he has rejected a new contract at the club, with Leeds United one of a handful of sides that are reportedly showing an interest in signing him as he enters the final year of his contract.

Can you remember where Leeds finished in these league seasons? First up: 2018/19

This was relayed to fans by @leedsutdacademy for them to react to, and it’s fair to say there was a lot of excitement at the news, with many of them practically begging the club to go and sign him:

“If this one is true that’s incredible, so highly rated by Fulham”

“Would be a top recruit. Get it done, Victor.”
“Be a great signing that. Pointless going to Norwich, have more ambition”
“I wouldn’t mind him at all, great young talent”
“I hope we sign this kid.”
“At this rate our U23s are going to be better than the first team”

Would you like to see Leeds sign Fabio Carvalho?

Given his record at academy level, Carvalho is certainly someone that could help a well-run youth side, and who knows, maybe he could develop into someone that could make an impact on the first team as well.
