Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly planning to use Wednesday's Champions League match against Liverpool as an opportunity to begin talks over a move for Fabinho.
Fabinho only joined Liverpool from Monaco in the summer, but speculation linking him with a swift exit has gathered pace in recent weeks amid reports that he is unhappy at Anfield.
The Brazilian has been forced to be patient for a chance in Jurgen Klopp's first-team plans, making just nine appearances so far this season.
Klopp has laughed off suggestions that Fabinho could leave in January, but L'Equipe reports that PSG are hoping to prise him away from Anfield on an initial loan deal.
Previous reports have suggested that any loan deal for Fabinho would be accompanied by a mandatory purchase clause of £44.3m at the end of the season.
