Spanish giants Real Madrid are interested in signing Fulham star Fabio Carvalho, according to the Daily Mail this afternoon.

The teenager has quickly become a vitally important part of Marco Silva’s side, having scored three goals and laid on another as Fulham have made an unbeaten start to the new Championship campaign. But Carvalho, who burst onto the scene with a goal on his first Premier League start last season, has turned down a contract extension at Craven Cottage and could leave for nothing when his current deal expires at the end of this term.

The Mail suggests that Real Madrid are rivalling at least ten Premier League sides in the race for Carvalho’s signature. The England youth international, who has starred for Fulham’s youth sides since joining the club from Balham back in 2014, was also linked with a move to Barcelona last month. The London club are desperate not to lose their latest academy starlet and remain in talks with Carvalho’s representatives.
