That Liverpool secured Fabinho to a five-year contract after agreeing an initial €50million transfer fee with Monaco on Monday has been attributed to Klopp's ability to sell his Anfield project to the Brazilian.

Monaco midfielder Fabinho will join Liverpool following the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, the French Ligue 1 club announced on Monday (May 28).

If Liverpool's pursuit of Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir proves successful, Jurgen Klopp could have a completely new, well-balanced, midfield axis to transplant into his preferred 4-3-3.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out for the start of the season, Liverpool needed to add an energetic player to their midfield and they got two in, Keita and Fabinho.

Fabinho told Liverpool's website, "We spoke a bit more about how the city was, about the infrastructure of the club, the city and we also spoke about the coaches and how they do their work".

But agreement has now been reached with the Premier League club that will see Fabinho join the Reds following the finals in Russian Federation.

Klopp has since admitted that the signing of Fabinho improves his squad tremendously, and gave some insight into how he may use the Brazilian.

"He changed his position in Monaco, he was a right-back and now he is a midfielder". He made 232 appearances for the club, scoring 32 goals and winning the Ligue 1 title in 2016-17.

Together with the signing of Naby Keita, who agreed on a move to Liverpool last season.

Following news of Fabinho's move to Liverpool, he told the Anfield fans what to expect from him, admitting he is prone to the odd yellow card.

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

Cascarino follows the French league closely having spent six seasons of his career there and he believes Jurgen Klopp has got himself a top player that will help Liverpool close the gap to Manchester City next season. He also has four caps for his national side.
