Liverpool don’t need another Fabinho headache as midfield positivity replaced by worry

So, it seems, the dismantling of Liverpool’s first-team under Jurgen Klopp continues.

Having helped the Reds sweep the board during his five years at the club, Fabinho is now on the verge of completing a move to Saudi Arabia after he failed to travel with Klopp’s squad for the pre-season training camp in Germany on Saturday.

The Brazilian is the latest in a long line of seasoned players in European leagues to be pursued by teams in the Saudi Pro League looking to establish themselves as a force.

But having already brought in two midfielders this summer, letting Fabinho leave would mean Liverpool once again scouring the market, this time for a dedicated number six capable of succeeding the Brazilian immediately.
