The 24 year old midfielder is set to replace Emre Can, who is heavily linked with move away from Merseyside. Also Fabinho will put question on role of captain Jordan Henderson. In 2017-18 campaign, Fabinho has played for the French club AS Monaco for 34 times and has become successful to find net for 7 times and made 3 assists.
With Keita set to join the Reds along with Fabinho on 1st July, Liverpool midfield will undergo an industrial revolution and ultimately will increase the chances of Klopp’s mighty Reds.
Author’s Take :
I think Fabinho will play as deep lying midfielder or holding midfielder and will also try to play a ‘two pronged role’ i.e. he will have contribution in attack and as well as in defense. With Guinea international Naby Keita set to join and Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir heavily linked, Reds’ upcoming season looks very exciting.
