Liverpool have agreed to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho in a deal that could be worth upwards of £40m.

The 24-year-old is a Brazil international and will join Jurgen Klopp's side on the 1 July for around £39m (45m euros). An additional £4m could be involved in performance bonuses.

The midfielder expressed his delight at the deal earlier today:

This is something that I always wanted – this is a giant of a team. The infrastructures of the club look exceptional. A football club of this size coming after my services, I didn’t have to think that much about coming over.

I will try to create my own history at this football club. Hopefully, on a personal level, I’m able to win titles with this club. I will try to grow and learn and improve myself, and to be part of the club’s history.


Fabinho joined the French side in 2013 and is reportedly being signed as a replacement for Emre Can.

He is represented by super agent Jorge Mendes and was linked with Manchester United in the past.


He started out as a right back, until he was converted to a centre midfielder with the French club.

Fabinho was a huge player in the clubs successful French league title in 2016-17. He also has four caps for his national side. The Brazilian is the second midfield signing for the club, as a £48m deal has already been agreed for RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita.
