Jurgen Klopp's side, beaten by Real Madrid in Saturday night's Champions League final, have been persistently linked with a move worth in the region of £60million for the 24-year-old France global, who captained the Ligue 1 side this season.
Lyon denied a deal was agreed, but Liverpool are still tipped to move for Fekir soon and Fabinho would love the attacker to join him at Anfield.
"Liverpool Football Club is one of these teams".
Klopp is hopeful these arrivals end their long wait for success, as the 2012 League Cup is the only trophy the club have won in the past 11 years, despite spending 1.130 billion euros. Also, worldwide caps for Brazil tells you something about him. I think he improves our squad and there aren't that many players you can say that about at this moment because the quality we have already is so high. He is also very good for someone who comes to a new country, a new city - someone who speaks the same language.
Fabinho has declared that signing for Liverpool was an easy decision to make.
On joining Liverpool, Fabinho has also revealed the influence of Reds forward and fellow Brazilian Firmino while making his decision. It was three, four weeks that I spoke with them. "He detailed the way he works, his training, the history of the club, and his structures", he said. I thought a little and told my agent that he could continue the transfer. He can play "6", "8" and "2". He made 232 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals and winning the Ligue 1 title in 2016-17.
"He told me a lot of good things about the team and explained how they play". Fabinho has been on the radar of a host of Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City. The pace is high.
