Brazil midfielder Fabinho to join Liverpool

Liverpool transfer news Nabil Fekir Lyon Salah

Fabinho has agreed a move to Liverpool from Monaco and the midfielder will complete his switch to the Merseyside giants officially on 1st July.

With Monaco understandably slipping back this season following a summer of sales, Fabinho got through even more work previous year, winning 114 tackles - a total bettered by two players in Ligue 1.

Fabinho will improve Klopp's options in midfield for the 2018-19 Premier League campaign amid continued uncertainty surrounding Emre Can's future. Hopefully, on a personal level, I'm able to win titles with this club.

"So you gain two, three players for one in Fabinho so I think it's a very smart move".

Lyon finished third in Ligue 1 to secure a return to Europe's top table next season.

Klopp, though, believes Fabinho's global experience will be useful as the midfielder bolsters his options along with fellow newcomer Naby Keita, who is poised to arrive from RB Leipzig. Interestingly, the move was pushed through by his agency Gestifute who are owned by renowned "super agent" Jorge Mendes.

Oman´s civil aviation meanwhile chose to reopen Salalah Airport on Sunday, which had been closed for the past three days. The main road linking the airport to Hadibo, the island's main city, has been reopened, Mahrous said.

Liverpool have signed midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of up to €50million (£43.7millon). "We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think".

Completing Fabinho's transfer within 48 hours of losing Saturday's Champions League Final to Real Madrid forms the first part of a strategy meant to improve Klopp's options in all areas of his squad.

He added: "I believe I am a player that can organise the game well for my team".

The newspaper suggests that a deal will cost the Merseysiders around £60m and Liverpool are keen to get their latest big-money transfer wrapped-up before the World Cup begins next month.

"He can be a holding midfielder, he can be versatile and you can play him in other positions like at full-back".

Though he has become a divisive figure among supporters since it emerged that he was likely to leave, losing the Germany worldwide is a bitter blow to Klopp's side.
