Liverpool reaches deal to sign Fabinho from Monaco

Lyon provide Liverpool with transfer update on'hesitating Nabil Fekir

"I like that he is young yet experienced also, with a high number of games at a club that competes to win".

If both were to follow Fabinho to Liverpool, it would trigger a significant revamp of the midfield at the Merseyside club, with Naby Keita also poised to join from RB Leipzig.

But Jean-Michel Aulas insists that the club remain relaxed about Fekir's future and does not expect any developments before the World Cup has finished.

"He is tactically very strong and football smart", Klopp continued.

Manchester United, on the other hand have already made moves on Fabinho's compatriot Fred who has been called to the Brazilian squad ahead of teammate Fabinho for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Although he missed out on Brazil's World Cup squad, Fabinho is a very highly-rated player and the signing will be seen as something of a coup. He was a right-back and now he is a midfielder.

"I had been with him at the Brazilian national team on a few occasions". He moved to Europe as a 19-year-old when Real Madrid snapped him up from Fluminense.

"If he comes, it will be good too".

We've put together a list of everything you need to know about Fabinho.

As noted by Walsh, Fekir, 24, is said to be high on Liverpool's list of targets this summer, with the Reds keen to reshape their midfield options.

He was a key figure in Monaco's Ligue 1-winning season in 2016/2017.

Now we know what Liverpool put on their player contracts for those photo ops.

Liverpool made an initial payment of £39.4million, with add-ons worth £4.3million being triggered around objectives such as qualifying for the Champions League. Fekir curled an early free-kick just wide and Corentin Tolisso struck the post for the French in a first half held up at one point by a pitch invader who gave chasing security staff the runaround on the sodden surface.

"In order for a player to leave, there have to be three elements in place - an offer, a yes from the club and from the player", he insisted.
