GETTYLiverpool transfer news Nabil Fekir could replace Real Madrid target Mohamed Salah

The Merseysiders moved on quickly from their Champions League final heartbreak by announcing the arrival of Fabinho from Monaco in a deal worth around £44m on Monday night.

The 24-year-old had been heavily linked with Liverpool's Premier League rivals Manchester United since last season.

With Emre Can expected to leave the Champions League runners-up on a free transfer this summer, Fabinho is a welcome signing as the former Rio Ave player will really bolster Jurgen Klopp's side. Hopefully, on a personal level, I'm able to win titles.

"The additions give us new opportunities and I'm excited because Fabinho can play in many positions across midfield, he's a fantastic footballer", said Jurgen Klopp.

The Reds suffered a 3-1 loss to Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last weekend after goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale. Liverpool have had a deal in place to bring Naby Keita from RB Leipzig for a fee of €70m since past year and are also working on improving at goalkeeper and in attack.

"We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think", said Klopp.

Manchester United, on the other hand have already made moves on Fabinho's compatriot Fred who has been called to the Brazilian squad ahead of teammate Fabinho for the World Cup in Russian Federation.

His role in that side was to play the part of the interceptor in front of the back four, snuffing out attacking moves through strong positional play and winning back the ball.

Ainge said yesterday he's probably only going to tinker around the edges of this team, which means guys like Greg Monroe are probably gone.

"Also, he plays a different type of game compared with what I was playing at Monaco".

What do you make of Liverpool's signing of Fabinho?

Keita is renowned for being an all-rounder in midfield so there's every chance Klopp could play him in a slightly more advanced position, either on his own or with another Liverpool player. He has 10 France caps and one global goal.
