New Signing Fabinho Reveals How Liverpool Forward Convinced Him to Join Reds

Liverpool transfer news Nabil Fekir Lyon Salah

He has called on Lyon's French attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir, who has been linked to Liverpool, to join him at Anfield.

When his Monaco teammates Bernardo Silva and Tiemoue Bakayoko made their moves to England, Fabinho was expected to join the Red Devils.

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

Fabinho was a virtual ever-present in Monaco's engine room during their victorious Ligue 1 campaign, forming an excellent partnership with Tiemoue Bakayoko, now of Chelsea.

Fabinho was a midfield mainstay in Jardim's league-winning Monaco of 2016-17, typically partnering Tiémoué Bakayoko as the two deeper players in their 4-2-2-2 system.

Alisson Becker, the Roma No.1, would be seen as one such upgrade, but Liverpool have been put off by the Italian club's asking price, which is only likely to rise given Karius' misfortune in Kiev.

As the deepest midfielder in their 4-3-3, is the simple answer.

"He is tactically very strong and football smart", Klopp added. Danny Ward, the No.3 goalkeeper, may also wish to leave in search of first-team football.

Fabinho will cover plenty of ground for Liverpool next season.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last weekend. Considering the fee, Liverpool managed to pull off a bargain on a player that can be so important for them.

In the past year, Liverpool have completed the three most expensive signings in their history, with the latest two joining the 80m euros January arrival of Virgil van Dijk. Keita, and perhaps Fekir, will be tasked with improving that while Fabinho provides the platform.

Emre Can is on the brink of joining Juventus, but Liverpool still have Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum to choose from.
