Premier League rivals Chelsea and Liverpool have joined Real Madrid in the race to sign Fabio Carvalho from Fulham.

Carvalho, 19, has scored three goals in seven appearances for Fulham this season to help Marco Silva’s side climb to second in the Championship as they look to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.

The teenager is one of the most highly-rated youngsters in England, having already made six appearances for England Under-23s and receiving the EFL Young Player of the Month award for August.

Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for Carvalho and are keen to take him to the Bernabeu, either in January or the end of the season.

But Eurosport say Chelsea and Liverpool have both also expressed interest in signing the attacker.

Carvalho will likely leave Craven Cottage next summer and Premier League giants Chelsea and Liverpool, currently first and third in the league respectively, want to be kept in the loop over any developments.

It is claimed Fulham fear Carvalho’s head has been turned by Real Madrid, but that one of the English sides could yet convince the teenager to snub a move abroad.

Carvalho came on as a second-half substitute in Fulham’s eye-catching 7-0 thrashing over Blackburn Rovers on Thursday night.

Following the devastating victory, Fulham boss Silva said: ‘It was a fantastic win for us, but we know it’s just three points.

‘We have to be humble enough to know that we did fantastic in scoring seven goals in this competition away from home and keeping a clean sheet, but it is just three points.

‘We have to be happy, to congratulate the players who have fantastic momentum but we have to keep our feet on the floor, we have to be humble and start to prepare for the next game.

‘We have to keep going, we know we won’t win all the games, but I don’t want to see the stats we had last month, because a winning mentality is what we’re trying to achieve.

‘What we did in the second half was to keep doing good things and it’s compulsory for us to want to keep the clean sheet.’
