There’s a chance that Liverpool could sell Fabinho in this summer’s transfer window.
That’s according to a report from The Mirror this morning. They claim that there’s a ‘possibility’ that the Brazil international is no longer a Liverpool player next season.
Nat Phillips, Adrian, Naby Keita and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also reportedly heading for the Anfield exit. Meanwhile, James Milner, Joel Matip and Joe Gomez join Fabinho in being potential sales for the Reds.
There seems to be a question mark over Curtis Jones’ future, too. However Klopp is said to be ready to give the 22-year-old ‘one more chance.’
Liverpool weighing up Fabinho future
Had the question of a Fabinho sale been posed this time last year, plenty of Liverpool supporters would have been up in arms.
Back then, the 29-year-old was a key man for Klopp. Just as he has been at every other point of his Reds career.
Fast forward 12 months and Fabinho star has fallen incredibly. Now almost seen as a liability, the £44m signing from Monaco has regressed alarmingly.
To be fair to Fab, he has been open about his struggles. The Brazil international recently admitted that he’s had better seasons at the club. He has picked up again over recent weeks, too. But even then, it’s clear that he is no longer the same player who dominated in Liverpool’s midfield for four years.
Over those four years, there isn’t anyone you would have rather had in his No.6 role. A destroyer by nature, Fabinho also showed himself capable of being a regular goal scorer last season.
Still only twenty-nine, it’s hard to explain why he’s fallen off as steeply as he has. Perhaps he’s just simply been run into the ground from years of holding together a top-heavy side.
Whatever it is, it would be a shame for Liverpool to give up on Fabinho. He has enough credit in the bank to be given the chance to play his way into form still.
But should his level fail to improve between now and the end of the season, perhaps the Reds would be best to cut their losses. Fabinho would still command a decent fee which could then be put into the revamp of the team. Fingers crossed Fab returns to his best before then.
