The Reds have made their first signing after their unimpressive 3-1 defeat to Real Madrid in the Champions League final matches last Saturday in Kiev.
The Merseyside club confirmed yesterday via their official website that they have captured the services of Brazilian star Fabinho from Monaco in a deal which is believed to be £43.7m
Fabinho has been a source of speculation since last winter due to his lively performances for the Ligue 1 side during the previous season.
Arsenal, Manchester United were tipped as the potential clubs who could get the Brazilian’s signature in the summer as both clubs were keenly monitoring his situation at the French League.
Liverpool were secretly doing business with the Monaco and the player’s representatives over his possible switch to the Anfield stadium. The 24-year-old finally penned a four-year contract with the Reds to put an end to numerous speculations surrounding his future.
Having completed the player’s signature last night, the Reds are rest assured that they now have a player who would perfectly replace Emre Can, who is on his way to Juventus ahead of next season.
The German midfielder rejected Liverpool’s new offer which was awarded to him at the latter stage of last season and according to the Mirror, he has reached an agreement with the Turin outfits ahead of his move out of Anfield.
However, Liverpool’s latest player Fabinho has called on Klopp to bring Nabil Fekir to the team despite competition from other suitors.
The £60m-rated Frenchman would surely add more quality to the Reds’ display at the center of the pitch, according to Fabinho.
The 23-goal striker, who plays for Lyon is now Klopp’s prime target ahead of the upcoming season.
