New Liverpool signing Fabinho is reportedly on AC Milan’s radar as The Rossoneri look to come through a midfield injury crisis unscathed.
Since joining the Reds for £43million in the summer, Fabinho has made a slow start and midway through November, he has made just seven appearances in all competitions but is slowly establishing himself in the starting XI.
Before the start of the season, he was expected to come straight into the side and use his pace, strength and height to dominate the Premier League but with Jurgen Klopp slowly easing him into life at Liverpool, he is yet to set the world alight.
That said, he is still fully expected to be a key performer for Liverpool and the flashes that we’ve seen from him show how good he might be when he has more minutes under his belt.
Much like Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fabinho has been slowly introduced to life as a Liverpool player and although he hasn’t made the impact yet that some assumed he would, he certainly isn’t going anywhere.
Calciomercato cites Italian news publication CorSport as claiming that AC Milan will make a shock move in January to sign Fabinho in a bid to paper over a few cracks that are appearing in midfield due to injuries.
The Rossoneri will apparently make a move to sign the Brazilian in January but even if this story was true (we highly doubt it is), it seems a bit far-fetched that Klopp would sell a player he bought less than six months ago.
