Leeds United and West Ham United are interested in signing Fulham youngster Fabio Carvalho, according to The Daily Mail.

What’s the story?

West Ham, Leeds, Norwich City and FC Porto are interested in signing Carvalho in the summer transfer window.

The 18-year-old attacker is out of contract at Fulham next summer, and the Cottagers are trying to tie him down to a new deal.

Fulham have made Carvalho, who can operate as an attacking midfielder or as a winger, an offer to extend his contract, but he has turned it down.

This has opened the door for Leeds, West Ham, Norwich and Porto to make their moves.

One for the future

Carvalho made three starts and one substitute appearance in the Premier League for Fulham last season.

The teenager scored one goal in those games.

The Fulham youngster was in action against Middlesbrough in the Championship today.

Carvalho is only 18, and it is clear that he is a player for the future.

A move to Leeds or West Ham is likely to see Carvalho be part of their youth team for now.

Staying at Fulham this season could see him get decent playing time, and that would see the youngster improve and develop.

However, you would understand if Fulham decide to cash in on him now instead of losing him on a free next summer.
