Fabio Carvalho has ‘every attribute you can think of’ and will fit in ‘perfectly’ at Liverpool, according to Harvey Elliott.
Elliott and Carvalho were team-mates at Fulham before the Reds snapped up the Englishman in 2019 and his old friend has joined on a £7.7million deal, penning a five-year contract at Anfield.
Carvalho, 19, enjoyed a hugely impressive season with the Cottagers, scoring 11 times and laying on eight assists over 38 Championship appearances for the title-winners.

Elliott is excited by the prospect of Carvalho linking up with him again and told the Liverpool ECHO: ‘He was my favourite player to play with as a youngster to be honest at Fulham.
‘He’s got everything in him, every attribute you can think of, and that’s why Liverpool have signed him.
‘Me and him had a great connection, on the pitch as well as off the pitch and I will definitely look after him when he arrives. But to be honest, I don’t even think I will have to do that, he will just fit in perfectly with the rest of the squad.
Elliott went on: ‘His best position? I mean that is for him to answer. I think he is a very versatile player, he can play anywhere, and I am sure he will be willing to just play anywhere on the pitch.’
Carvalho has already been given a guided tour of Liverpool’s AXA training base but will officially become a Liverpool player on July 1 when the transfer window opens.
Elliott and Carvalho will both hope they can be stars of the future at Liverpool and may benefit from a summer of transition for the Reds.
Sadio Mane looks to be on the way out, with Bayern Munich the most likely destination, and Klopp could be content to have Carvalho serving as a back-up to the attackers rather than making a big-name acquisition.
Elliott started last season superbly before and injury against Leeds set him back.
No doubt a full preseason will give the 19-year-old a great chance to force his way back into Klopp’s first team plans, especially with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain seemingly heading for an exit.
