He has featured heavily for the club since making his loan move permanent in 2015, playing 47 times in all competitions last season and scoring eight goals.

It earned him a call-up to Didier Deschamps' France World Cup squad and the 24-year-old is aware he is a man in demand. But, Liverpool seems to have done the deed quickly, snapping Fabinho up from AS Monaco.

He started out as a right back, until he was converted to a centre midfielder with the French club.

Klopp's assertion that Fabinho can play as a "number 8" is also interesting, yet not unfounded as he succeeded with 37 of his 51 attempted dribbles last season. He is additionally hesitating about whether or not he desires to play within the Champions League with Lyon'.

At Liverpool, the system is 4-3-3, with Roberto Firmino at the point of the attack supported by Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane from wide positions.

Another string to Fabinho's bow is that he is an excellent penalty taker.

Sanctions to be dropped before new abortion law
Ireland voted to repeal the eighth amendment to their constitution by a landslide Friday opening the path to legalizing abortion. New abortion legislation in Ireland could be named Savita's Law in honour of a woman who died after being refused a termination .

Firmino and Fabinho are both Brazilian and the new £46.3million transfer recruit confirmed he has been following the Reds since his fellow countryman joined the club 2015.

"He is tactically very strong and football-smart".

Fabinho will cover plenty of ground for Liverpool next season.

Understandably, the pieces of paper that we see in front of new arrivals at official unveilings aren't the real contracts because those are signed behind closed doors with agents and club representatives present. Henderson, Milner and Giogrinio Wijnaldum showed they are worth of the shirt during Liverpool's Champions League run, but are likely to be rotational options next season as Liverpool look to mount a challenge on multiple fronts. That leaves one midfield slot up for grabs.

Emre Can is on the brink of joining Juventus, but Liverpool still have Jordan Henderson, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Adam Lallana and Georginio Wijnaldum to choose from.
