Will Gigi Buffon follow Fabinho to Liverpool?

Fabinho joins Liverpool

The big news on Monday night in Liverpool was the signing of Fabinho from Monaco.

Liverpool have shelled out £39 million to sign the 24-year-old Brazilian midfielder.

Fabinho, who is Liverpool’s second signing of the summer after Naby Keita, was omitted from Brazil’s World Cup squad.

Most have interpreted the signing as the precursor to Emre Can’s Anfield exit. Can has long been tipped with a move to Juventus this summer.

So what will Fabinho bring to Liverpool? Jurgen Klopp has offered his thoughts on why the Reds have done the deal with Monaco:

He has ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions. He can play ‘six’, ‘eight’ and ‘two’. This is cool.

A discussion of Fabinho’s versatility was also held on the BBC radio on Monday night.

Gigi Buffon to move to Anfield too?

How many more players will Liverpool sign this summer?

Following the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, the consensus opinion was that Loris Karius is finished at Liverpool.

Karius was guilty of two clangers in Kiev that gifted Real the Champions League title.

At the same time, Liverpool have been linked with Italian legendary goalie Gigi Buffon.

Buffon is now a free agent after his 17-year long career at Juventus has come to an end.

Could Buffon be Liverpool’s next addition? That issue was also chewed over on the BBC this week.
