PSG Linked With Sensational Bid For Unsettled Liverpool Star Ahead Of Crunch Champions League Clash
Paris St-Germain have been linked with a January move for Liverpool midfielder Fabinho and reports suggest club chiefs could discuss a deal ahead of their Champions League clash on Wednesday night.
The French newspaper, L'Equipe, have suggested that PSG are hoping to hold talks with Liverpool bosses in Paris on Wednesday to see whether Fabinho might be available.
The Brazilian midfielder has found first-team opportunities at Liverpool hard to come by since signing from Monaco for £43m during the summer transfer window and the Merseyside outfit would surely want to recoup all of that fee if they were to even consider letting him return to Ligue 1.
There have been suggestions that the 25-year-old is unhappy with his role at Anfield after appearing in nine games in all competitions this season, playing 486 minutes in total.
L'Equipe stated that PSG sporting director, Antero Henrique, wants to speak to Liverpool in order to see if Fabinho could move to Paris on loan until the end of the current campaign, with an eye to a permanent deal in the summer.
Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, has previously rubbished suggestions that the Reds would be willing to let Fabinho leave so soon after signing for the club, although the latest reports out of France suggest PSG are ready to make a move.
The news comes just a day before PSG and Liverpool meet in a crunch Champions League Group C clash at Parc Des Princes, where a win for the Reds would see them qualify for the knockout stages if Red Star Belgrade fail to beat Napoli in the evening's other match.
