Real Madrid eye summer swoop for £43m Liverpool star

A Liverpool star is garnering interest from Real Madrid.

Liverpool’s biggest weakness this season has been their midfield. Jurgen Klopp built his success at Liverpool around a fast, powerful, pressing midfield, which mainly consisted of Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho.

However, Wijnaldum has now left, Henderson is not the player he once was and Fabinho has also put in some questionable displays over the last few months.

Now, ahead of the summer transfer window, a number of midfielders have been tipped to leave the club, including Fabinho.

And whilst the Brazilian may not be working out too well for Liverpool right now, another top European club still seemingly want the former AS Monaco man.

According to a report from Fichajes, Carlo Ancelotti wants to add more depth to his midfield and he has identified Fabinho, a former Real Madrid, player as a target.

Letting the 29-year-old leave the club at the end of the season could prove to be a wise decision from the Reds, and it would allow them to invest the proceeds from his sale into the playing squad.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from Monaco for £43.7m and a similar fee now would be great for the Reds to reinvest in a new defensive midfielder.
