"This signing gives us new opportunities and for that I am excited". I play with a lot of intensity and I'm quite strong in man-marking.

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.

Fabinho has shown he can cope in these circumstances, and his presence might also allow Liverpool's full-backs to push (even) further forward.

"He changed his position at Monaco, he was a right-back, now he's a midfielder".

Arsenal and Chelsea have also been linked with a potential move for the 24-year-old, who will be a member of Didier Deschamps' 23-man France squad in Russian Federation for the World Cup this summer.

"He has the ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions".

"He's also hesitating about whether he wants to play in the Champions League with Lyon".

While a fee has not been mentioned in the official announcement, The Telegraph reports a €50 million fee, which would be fair by the current standards of the transfer market, considering Fabinho's age - 24.

What's great about Liverpool's midfield options, though, is that they're all versatile.

Hot on the tails of the whirlwind, out-of-the-blue transfer of Fabinho from Monaco, the Reds are looking to seal a deal for Nabil Fekir from Lyon by the end of this week.

Liverpool pulled a rabbit out of the hat on Monday evening when, within hours of speculation beginning, the Anfield club had officially unveiled the signing of Fabinho.

It all depends on Klopp's tactics for next season.

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table to secure a spot in the Champions League for the second successive season.

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.
