Liverpool close to securing £45million transfer of Fabinho

Fekir scored 23 goals in 40 appearances last season

Hopefully, on a personal level, I'm able to win titles.

"In Ligue 1, it is not only this season that he has demonstrated things".

With two formidable additions to the Reds' midfield, where does it leave the English core who were crucial in the club reaching their first Champions League final in eleven years?

With the World Cup fast approaching, deals will become more hard to complete, while competition could mount if players enjoy a productive spell in Russian Federation.

"He is tactically very strong and football smart".

Fabinho, who joined Monaco on loan from Portuguese side Rio Ave in 2013, won the French league title in 2016-17.

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.




"He is a very good player, of global level", Fabinho said.

He started out as a right back, until he was converted to a centre midfielder with the French club. "Also, global caps for Brazil tells you something about him". For a few years he has shown his quality. "I'm sure our supporters will make him very welcome and at home at our wonderful club and in our incredible city".

Liverpool are said to be hopeful of signing the France worldwide before the World Cup starts on June 14, with Fekir telling Lyon he is keen to join the Reds.

Probably not too much, in all honesty, although his tactical flexibility will certainly come in handy. But, Liverpool seems to have done the deed quickly, snapping Fabinho up from AS Monaco. "Nabil has not indicated that he wants to leave or if he wants to play one more year with Champions League football".

This was information supported by Aulas, who reiterated what he had said earlier in the week.

Fekir enjoyed a stellar season with Lyon, scoring 18 goals and creating seven more in Ligue 1 as they finished third behind Paris Saint-Germain and Monaco.

"As of today, we have nothing of the sort".
