Liverpool will reportedly sell Fabinho in January to generate cash to buy Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic as the American runs his contract down.
It’s a sore point among Liverpool fans to discuss the Nabil Fekir saga from June but try as we might to ignore the fact that the absence of a Philippe Coutinho-type replacement, as well as the absence of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, has weakened the Reds.
That being said, Liverpool are still churning out results and that’s without either of Klopp’s two new midfielders in Fabinho and Naby Keita playing a significant role yet. The latter has struggled with injury while the former has been slowly introduced to the German’s brand new tactics.
But to say that Fabinho has been a failure is just ignorant. It’s for this reason that the best course of action is to dismiss the article written by the Mirror’s John Richardson as a total waste of bandwidth.
Klopp signed Fabinho less than six months ago for £43million and when he has been on the pitch, he has shown glimpses of why the Liverpool boss forked out so much money to sign him.
The report from the Mirror goes on to claim that with Klopp a massive fan of Borussia Dortmund forward Christian Pulisic, he is open to selling Fabinho to alleviate the financial burden of entering the £70million race to sign the American.
Apparently, an Anfield insider has said: “Having watched Christian develop there is no way Jurgen is going to back off now. He knows he is a talent who can light up the Premier League.”
