Liverpool made an initial move for Carvalho in the Summer for 8m however this panned out as the transfer window closed. However, Liverpool seems to have reopened the talks and have agreed on a deal with Fulham for 5m + addons.
Carvalho’s contract is to end in the Summer and he was intending to move away from Fulham. Carvalho moving to Liverpool just proved Arteta right.
Mikel Arteta’s Theory
Arteta considers Liverpool the best team in England which should anger their rivals Manchester City. He went on and added that every player wants to play at Liverpool and play under Jurgen Klopp. He further said,
“We are facing arguably the best team in England and have to be at our best to beat them.
You face a team that dominates every single aspect of the game, so when that happens you have to be at your very best. Credit to Jurgen, the coaching staff and to the club as well for what they have created.
They haven’t just created a team that can compete and be successful, They have created a huge cultural understanding of who Liverpool is today. The stadium and the atmosphere they can create, the support, the level, how they communicate.
It’s a lot of things, not just individuals, or the players that they have recruited and the plan that they had to reach that level. It’s a whole plan that I really value.”L
Liverpool and a Potential Quadruple
Liverpool have the opportunity to win the first-ever Quadruple in football. They are in the driving seat in the Champions League as they have an away win of 3:1 over Benfica. In the Premier League, Liverpool faces Manchester City next which could possibly be the title decider. If Liverpool is to win the match Liverpool will have a 2 point advantage over City which could essentially hand them the title. In the FA Cup, they face Manchester City again in the Semifinals and Liverpool have to win the game if they intend to end the season with the Quadruple.
