Real Madrid could sign Liverpool midfielder Fabinho during this summer's transfer window, according to a report.

Real Madrid are reportedly eyeing a summer move for Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.

The 29-year-old has been a vital player for the Reds since his arrival from Monaco in 2018, making 203 appearances for the club, contributing 11 goals and eight assists in the process.

Fabinho has won the Premier League, FA Cup, EFL Cup, Community Shield, Champions League and UEFA Super Cup during his time at Anfield, and he still has another three years left to run on his contract.

The Brazil international has again been a regular this season, making 33 appearances in all competitions, but it has been an underwhelming campaign for Jurgen Klopp's side.

Liverpool are already out of the FA Cup, while they are on the brink of being eliminated from the Champions League, having lost 5-2 at home to Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 tie.

The Reds are also facing a battle to make the top four in this season's Premier League table, currently sitting down in seventh position, nine points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur.

There is expected to be a midfield overhaul this summer, with Borussia Dortmund's Jude Bellingham said to be the club's leading target in that area of the field.

A recent report claimed that Liverpool are still in a strong position to sign Bellingham this summer despite their struggles on the field during the 2022-23 campaign.

However, there will have to be some major outgoings in order to raise the funds for the England international's arrival, and according to Fichajes, Fabinho could be on his way out of the club.

The report claims that Real Madrid are keeping a close eye on the situation, with Los Blancos interested in bringing the South American to Bernabeu.

Liverpool would reportedly be willing to discuss an exit for the experienced midfielder if they received an offer in the region of €70m (£62m).

Real Madrid have also been heavily linked with Bellingham, as the Spanish and European champions could overhaul their midfield this summer.

Toni Kroos, Luka Modric and Dani Ceballos, as it stands, are all out of contract at the end of June, and it is possible that at least one of those will depart on a free transfer.

Real Madrid are well-stocked in central midfield, though, with Eduardo Camavinga, Aurelien Tchouameni and Federico Valverde seen as key players both now and in the future.

Fabinho was a late substitute in Liverpool's goalless draw with Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Saturday night.
