Fekir: 'I'm not close to Liverpool transfer'

In the a year ago, Liverpool have completed the three most expensive signings in their history, with the latest two joining the 80m euros January arrival of Virgil van Dijk.

Some eagle-eyed supporters have now figured out what Liverpool use for their signings after the Merseyside club pulled off the impressive coup of adding versatile Brazil worldwide Fabinho to their ranks this week.

With Emre Can expected to leave the Champions League runners-up on a free transfer this summer, Fabinho is a welcome signing as the former Rio Ave player will really bolster Jurgen Klopp's side.

In addition to Naby Keita's pre-agreed move from RB Leipzig, the Reds have captured Monaco's Fabinho for a fee in the region of £44 million.

"This is something that I always wanted - this is a giant of a team", said Fabinho.

The combo will be precious in Liverpool's style of play and for Klopp's aspirations next season.

"We also spoke about the coaches and how they do their work".

"We simply know that teams are interested", said Aulas. In an interview earlier this year, the player himself confirmed that there was genuine interest from some of the clubs and "was close to one of them" before Monaco blocked the move.

"He has ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions". This is cool. He is tactically very strong and football smart.

What Jurgen Klopp said about him: "We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think".

"After he arrived here he was able to achieve higher development at this football club".

The 24-year-old has been included in the French squad ahead of Russian Federation 2018 so it makes sense for Liverpool to try and get a deal secured now as his value would increase significantly if he impresses at the World Cup.

"I don't know how Liverpool are thinking about using him, but I am sure they can use him in both".
