Done deal : Liverpool agree fee to sign Fabinho from Monaco

Liverpool have agreed to sign Monaco midfielder Fabinho in a deal that could be worth more than £40m.

The Brazil international, 24, will join the Champions League finalists on 1 July for around £39m (45m euros).

A further £4m (5m euros) could be added in performance-related bonus payments and Fabinho's arrival will likely be followed by the departure of Emre Can.

Fabinho has spent spells playing as a right-back but has excelled in defensive midfield and is viewed as a replacement for Can, who is out of contract this summer and has repeatedly been linked with Juventus.

Fabinho's arrival is the first sign that Klopp will not allow the grass to grow under Liverpool's feet as he tries to claim his first trophy with them when he starts his third full season at Anfield in August.
