Liverpool Transfers: Nabil Fekir Is A "Done Deal" To Merseyside

Liverpool Transfers: Nabil Fekir Is A

"I am really excited about this move", Fabinho said to Liverpool's website.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp expressed his excitement about the arrival of Fabinho, who has been capped four times for Brazil.

Fabinho spent two seasons on loan at Monaco from Portuguese club Rio Ave before making a permanent move to the principality in May 2015.

The 24-year-old has even admitted that his global team-mate had a big role to play in his decision to move to Liverpool.

Germany midfielder Emre Can is set to leave Anfield at the end of his contract and been strongly linked with a move to Italian champions Juventus.

Fekir is a 24-year-old Lyon-born forward who came through the club's youth system and is part of the France squad for the upcoming World Cup and for the warm-up game against Ireland on Monday night.

Speculation about a number of goalkeepers has increased following Karius' high-profile errors in Kiev.

Paris: Monaco midfielder Fabinho will join Liverpool following the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, the French Ligue 1 club and the Premier League giants announced Monday.

While Fekir is still talking about the prospect of leaving Champions League-bound Lyon, he has said that any transfer to Liverpool is no formality and that there are still several clubs in the running for his signature.

They reportedly made a move last summer and while Liverpool fans will point to the fact they got him first, United have probably turned their attention to fellow Brazilian midfielder Fred.

"He is tactically very strong and football smart".

An added bonus is Fabinho's ability from the penalty spot - he scored five penalties last season. However, Deschamps handed a fifth cap to Benjamin Mendy, the Manchester City left-back who has hardly played since suffering a serious knee injury at the beginning of the campaign.
