MEDICALS passed, Five-year Deal Agreed, Liverpool Completes New €45m Summer Deal [Photo]

Liverpool have agreed to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho in a reported £40m deal this summer having passed the club Medicals. The Brazilian will join the Red on 1 July for around £39m (45m euros).

According to reports, it’s said that a further £4m (5m euros) could be added in performance-related bonus payment and the Brazilian’s arrival will likely to Emre Can facing the exit door at Anfield.

After signing for Liverpool, Fabinho said:

“This is something that I always wanted – this is a giant of a team,”

“I am really excited.”

The Brazil international, has spent years playing as a right-back but he has been superb playing in defensive midfield and is viewed as the Reds’ replacement for departing Can, who is out of contract this summer having been linked with Serie A champions Juventus.

Manager Jurgen Klopp said:

“He has ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions. He can play ‘six’, ‘eight’ and ‘two’. This is cool.”

The Brazilian, whose deal will begin on 1 July, said the club’s infrastructure looked “exceptional”.

“A football club of this size coming after my services, I didn’t have to think that much about coming over,” added Fabinho.

“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.”

In all, Fabinho has registered 225 appearances and netted 29 goals in five seasons with the French giants.

“We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think,” added Klopp.

“His reputation as a character in the dressing room and his attitude in training has come through from everyone we speak to.

“He has a lovely family also – adding a person like this to our dressing room only makes us even stronger. What we have – in terms of our environment at Melwood and in the team – means anyone coming in must be of that build. They must be the highest quality person and player.”

Despite helping the Ligue 1 side to second position in Ligue 1 behind champions Paris Saint-Germain last season, the midfielder failed to make Tite’s Brazil 23-man World Cup squad.

Fabinho will team up with new players in Liverpool’s midfield next season, with Guinea international Naby Keita moving to Merseyside from RB Leipzig on 1 July.
