Liverpool are reportedly closing in on the signing of Fabinho from Monaco in a deal which could be worth up to €50m (£43.7m).
Speculation emerged earlier this evening that the Reds had made an official approach for the 24-year-old following talks with Monaco, and the transfer is now thought to be close to completion.
The Champions League finalists are also likely to be without Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the start of next season due to injury, although they have already agreed a deal to sign Naby Keita from RB Leipzig this summer too.
The initial fee for Brazilian international Fabinho is expected to be €45m (£39.3m), with an additional €5m (£4.4m) in bonuses.
Fabinho, who has been linked with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United and Atletico Madrid in the past, was directly involved in 13 goals across 45 appearances this season.
