Liverpool want to bring Man City’s biggest flop at Anfield to replace Fabinho

Following the shocking omission of Fabinho from Liverpool’s squad travelling to Germany for a pre-season training camp, and a £40m bid from Al-Ittihad, the Brazil midfielder could be in his final few days with the Reds. Melissa Reddy names 4 possible replacements for Fabinho at Liverpool and rules out another.

Melissa Reddy has named four players who the Merseyside club are believed to be ‘assessing’ as possible replacements for the 29-year-old, while also appearing to rule out one current Premier League ace.

“Liverpool had been assessing longer-term candidates to replace Fabinho,” the Sky Sports journalist tweeted. As they will need an immediate starter, the profile may change.

“Names mentioned include Sofyan Amrabat, Ryan Gravenberch, Kalvin Phillips, and Romeo Lavia… Moises Caicedo was not on their shortlist.”

The names of the four players Reddy listed had all been circulated in various media outlets in recent weeks and months, with Lavia’s being discussed the most frequently.

He and Phillips are the two individuals with Premier League experience who have been mentioned as being most helpful in assisting the Reds in meeting their roster criteria for homegrown quotas.

The Manchester City powerhouse and Gravenberch may be seen as reasonably attainable due to their lack of playing time at their respective clubs last season, though Pep Guardiola’s side may be reluctant to sell to the team who has been their biggest rival during his time at the Etihad Stadium.

Liverpool’s chase of Caicedo this summer may have come to an end as a result of Brighton’s outrageous £100 million asking price, despite rumors on Friday that he was a potential target (talkSPORT).

With Fabinho now looking likely to leave following his exclusion from the Reds’ pre-season tour, it’s critical that the Reds act quickly in acquiring a readymade replacement in the number 6 role who’d be capable of performing to the standard of a Jurgen Klopp team.
