    'Fulham finessed us'

    Liverpool fans joked they had been “finessed” by Fulham after the West Londoners sealed a stunning loan switch for Neco Williams. writes ISABELLE BARKER.

    Confirmation of the Liverpool right-back’s arrival for the remainder of the season came after Fabio Carvalho’s Merseyside move sensationally broke down. 

    Williams' deal sent social media into meltdown with one Reds supporter writing on Twitter: “How the f**k have we been finessed by Fulham?”

    The move means that Fulham agreed to sell fellow full-back Denis Odoi to Club Bruges for £580,000

    The deadline day transfer brought an end to six years of service at Craven Cottage for the Belgian right back.

    Odoi was signed for a similar fee from Lokeren in 2016 and has played a part in three promotions, making more than 150 appearances for the club.

    Transfer deadline deals…

    It's surely safe now to run through the main deals on an unexpectedly dramatic transfer deadline day.

    That's because Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's permanent switch from Arsenal to Barcelona was confirmed shortly after the window shut at 11pm.

    Ex-Tottenham playmaker Christian Eriksen got the ball rolling with a six-month deal at Brentford.

    Man City landed River Plate's Argentina striker Julian Alvarez for £14million but loaned him back to his home-country club.

    Newcastle made Brighton centre-back Dan Burn their third defensive signing.

    And Arsenal legend Aaron Ramsey joined Rangers on loan from Juventus.

    Finally, Manchester United's misfit midfielder Donny van de Beek completed a busy first full day for new Everton boss Frank Lampard with a loan switch.

    Cottagers hold out for Carvalho loan return

    Fulham sources insist they will only let Fabio Carvalho join Liverpool if they get a loan back clause in the deal, writes ANDY DILLON.

    The two clubs have agreed in principle for the attacking midfielder to move to Anfield.

    But the teenager is seen as so important to Championship Fulham's promotion push that they want him until the end of the season.

    The Londoners are playing hardball despite the obvious attraction for the 19-year-old.

    Carvalho would still be subject to a tribunal even though he is out of contract at the end of the campaign.

    Jude a summer Kop target?

    Liverpool reportedly believe that a move for Borussia Dortmund star Jude Bellingham is ‘achievable’ in the future.

    This follows heightened speculation linking the Reds with a move for the 18-year-old.

    According to a report from the Liverpool Echo, as cited by Anfield Edition on Twitter, Liverpool could spread the cost to make a likely £90million plus asking price seem more palatable.

    That’s the claim from the The Athletic as the Wales star, 20, searches for more regular first-team action.

    Liverpool remain keen on Fulham’s Portuguese whizkid Fabio Carvalho.

    But that might be a deal for the summer.

    His contract expires at the end of the season if he does not trigger an appearance-related clause, which seems unlikely.

    Newcastle are chasing Atalanta forward Duvan Zapata and the Italian club’s interest in Origi is linked to that.

    Liverpool are still in direct contact with Fulham over a deal for Fabio Carvalho, reports Fabrizio Romano.

    Talks are ongoing but Fulham want more than the £5m The Reds have offered.

    But he will only team up with Jurgen Klopp's side at the end of the season, with Fulham determined to keep him for their promotion push.

    Tutto Mercato reports that the Reds are expected to send officials to Italy next month to make “contacts” with both Skriniar and Juventus forward Paulo Dybala over summer moves to Anfield.

    Alisson pokes fun at Jota

    Diogo Jota might fancy himself as a zookeeper when he calls time on his football career after spending time handling exotic animals in Dubai.

    But he faces the wrath of Liverpool goalkeeper Alisson Becker if he does so, as the in-form forward has already found out over the winter break.

    While many players spent their time off relaxing, Jota marked his break with a visit to Rashed Belhasa's exclusive zoo in Dubai.

    And The Reds' shot-stopper replied to the post: "Dr Dolittle 😂" in reference to the fictional character who can talk to animals.

    Salah looking to make history

    Egypt captain Mohamed Salah says the record Africa Cup of Nations champions must try not to think about the prospect of winning their eight title after they dug deep to reach the semi-finals.

    Salah scored the equaliser and set up the winner to inspire the Pharaohs' 2-1 extra-time success over Morocco on Sunday.

    Egypt face unbeaten hosts Cameroon in the last four, a repeat of the 2017 final which the Indomitable Lions won.

    Salah said: "We must keep our feet on the ground because we cannot think too far ahead yet.

    "We have to prepare for the big match against Cameroon and not start making dreams about the final before the semi-final."

    'I could not be happier'

    Jurgen Klopp is delighted to have captured Porto winger Luis Diaz and is confident he will be a big boost to the team.

    Klopp said: "I could not be happier that we've been able to get this deal done and bring Luis to Liverpool.

    "I have always been a believer in only signing players in January if you would want to sign them in the summer, and that's very much the case with Luis.

    'He is an outstanding player and someone we've been tracking for a very long time.

    'We believe he has everything needed to fit into our way and adapt to the Premier League, both physically and mentally. He is a player who is hungry for success and knows you have to fight to get what you want.

    "He is a fighter, no doubt. He's a skilful team player who has always the goal in mind."

    Liverpool wait on Carvalho decision

    The Sunday World say Liverpool have made one last late push to bring Carvalho to Merseyside before this evening's 11pm deadline.

    It is claimed that the two clubs are ready to agree a deal over Carvalho but that the final decision rests with the Portugal-born teenager himself.

    Carvalho knows that if he were to leave on a free in the summer, he might be able to command higher wages with the likes of Borussia Dortmund and Porto said to be interested.

    And those clubs may also be able to offer greater guarantees of first-team minutes next season with plenty of competition in Liverpool's midfield and attack despite Jurgen Klopp's willingness to give games to young players.

    Details of Phillips loan deal

    Bournemouth have paid Liverpool a loan fee of £1.5million according to Neil Jones.

    The Cherries will also have to pay a further £250,000 fee if they are promoted this season – they currently sit third in the Championship.

    Liverpool also rejected loan-to-buy offer from Watford and a loan proposal from Leicester.

    Done deal for Nat Phillips

    Bournemouth have confirmed the loan signing of Nat Phillips until the end of the season.

    The 24-year-old’s move to Vitality Stadium is his first UK-based loan switch of his career, having spent the 2019/20 season with VfB Stuttgart.

    He has struggled for game time this season and despite signing a contract last summer Liverpool were willing to let him leave.

    Fabio no… so far

    Liverpool are yet to make a bid for Fabio Carvalho that meets Fulham’s expectations, reports claim.

    BBC reporter Ian Dennis has provided a recent update which suggests the Reds’ £5m bid may not be enough to secure the 19-year-old.

    Carvalho is out of contract in the summer, but Liverpool are eager to agree a deal and pay a fee to avoid a possible tribunal if his contract runs down.

    Fulham’s priority remains keeping the player until the end of the season to aid their promotion push and it is understood Liverpool are willing to let the player return on loan should a deal be agreed.

    The centre-back will be aiming to boost the Cherries' chances of promotion.

    And should Bournemouth get promoted with Phillips impressing it is possible both parties will seek to change the loan into a permanent move.

    Liverpool dealt big Carvalho setback

    Fulham are said to be holding out for £15million for Fabio Carvalho who is out of contract in the summer, reports journalist Samuel Adams.

    Liverpool would have to pay a compensation fee if they signed the winger on a free at the end of the season.

    But since that fee is likely to be considerably less than £15m, Liverpool are unwilling to meet Fulham's demands.
