Former Fulham Mark Crossley insists that teenager Fabio Carvalho will be attracting interest from clubs after such an excellent start to the season.

The 19-year-old has worked his way into the first-team under manager Marco Silva at the start of the season.

Carvalho has played in five games in the Championship and has scored three goals, against Huddersfield Town, Millwall, and City, while also registering an assist.

The England U18 international has a contract with Fulham until 2022, meaning that he could well have his pick of a number of clubs next summer.

United, Leeds United, Norwich City and Porto are all said to be keeping a close eye on his situation at the club, per The Daily Mail.

And Crossley believes that a number of clubs will want to bring the teenager in, and has urged Fulham to stay near the top of the table in a bid to ensure he stays.

Fulham are currently top of the Championship, having taken 13 points from their opening five games.

Speaking exclusively to This Is Futbol, Crossley said: “If Marco Silva’s picking him, and he’s playing regularly, such a young lad… I haven’t seen too much of him but what I have seen, Fulham have to stay at the top of the league because clubs are going to be all over him at this moment in time.”
