Lots of Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after the reason for signing Fabinho was revealed by The Athletic.
The article by James Pearce states that the Reds signed the Brazil international over Chelsea’s Jorginho and Arsenal’s Lucas Torreira because of his physical prowess.
Liverpool had tracked the defensive midfielder’s progress since the 2012/13 campaign when Fabinho was on loan at Real Madrid from Portuguese outfit Rio Ave, so they have clearly done their research on the player.
The Merseysiders finally got their man last summer when they parted with £39m to bring the 25-year-old to Anfield from Monaco, and it has proved to be an inspired swoop.
Fabinho has helped the club win the Champions League and the UEFA Super Cup since signing, and it feels like the Brazilian is getting better with every passing game under Jurgen Klopp.
Let’s see how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted to the news…

Great decision, I do think Torreira is a brilliant player though, and will still get a lot better, still rather have our fab though ?
