AC Milan to offer escape route for Liverpool midfielder wanting ‘continuity’
Drew Bartle Head Sports Editor
AC Milan are reportedly monitoring the current situation Fabinho finds himself in at Liverpool, after a very slow start to life in England – that is according to Italian news source Corriere dello Sport.
Signed for just under £45 million in the summer from Monaco, the Brazilian was one of Jurgen Klopp’s biggest transfers and came with a plenty of promise to help transform the Reds’ midfield. However, the 25-year old didn’t get any Premier League minutes until October 20th as a late substitute.
Since then though Fabinho has started in all of Liverpool’s league games and the prospect of him now establishing himself in Klopp’s XI looks far more likely.
Despite the recent starts, Corriere dello Sport say that Fabinho wants ‘continuity’ and a lot will depend on what happens between now and January, with AC Milan ready to make a swoop for the Brazilian – likely to be on-loan but it could also be a full transfer.
With over 200 appearances for former club Monaco and 30 plus goals in that time, Liverpool will hope for a bit of that form he showed while in the south of France going forward and the player too will want to continue that run of games. AC Milan though reportedly wait in the wings.
