Report: Liverpool advance negotiations for new Fabinho contract

Liverpool are in the process of negotiating a new contract for midfield star Fabinho, according to reports.

After yesterday breaking the news of a possible new deal for Alisson, Fabrizio Romano has now revealed that the club are keen to extend Fabinho’s contract as well.

Romano reports that negotiations between the two parties are progressing.

The player himself is open to staying and extending his time at Anfield.

His current deal will expire in 2023, according to Transfermarkt.

The Brazilian has been sensational since signing for £39m (BBC) in 2018.

He has arguably been Liverpool’s best player this season, aside from Mohamed Salah. This is despite having to play the majority of his minutes out of position at centre-back.

Like with Alisson, Fabinho penning a contract extension would be great news for Liverpool.

The defensive midfielder is arguably the best in the world in his position. He is everything that you would want in a No 6.

He also clearly has a love for the club and the city and clearly understands the traditions of the club.

At 27-years-old, Fabinho is right in the middle of his prime. He should have at least another four seasons of playing at the top level.

With his deal set to expire in two years time, it is important that the club extends his current terms. That way, they will avoid another Gini Wijnaldum-type situation where they lose a key player for absolutely nothing.

It is vital that when Fabinho does leave a few years down the line, the club will be able to get some form of transfer fee for him.

But even more importantly, Liverpool will now have one of the best players in the world in their side for the next number of seasons.
