Paris Saint-Germain are considering a loan move for Liverpool midfielder Fabinho in the January transfer window, according to Le Parisien.
The Brazilian moved to Anfield from Monaco in the summer in what was a surprise deal, but one that excited the fans.
Jurgen Klopp recruited a handful of new players, including Naby Keita, Xherdan Shaqiri and goalkeeper Alisson.
However, he took a different approach with Fabinho by not throwing him into the first XI.
The manager insisted that the 25-year-old needed time to adapt to the Premier League and life at Anfield.
In recent matches, the defensive midfielder has had more minutes on the pitch, but his performances have been inconsistent.
According to Le Parisien, Klopp’s patient approach has left Fabinho ‘bored’, which has prompted PSG to outline a loan move in January.
If it does, it will leave many people scratching their heads as the move would not benefit Liverpool in any way.
Fabinho has not been left on the sidelines because he is not valued by Klopp; in fact it is quite the opposite.
The manager clearly sees the Brazilian as a key cog in the team, which is why he is ensuring that the midfielder is ready to cope with the demands of England’s top flight.
Allowing Fabinho to leave midway through the season would ruin all progress that has been made.
The only way one could see this transfer happening is if the player himself forces it through, but that would be hugely surprising given that the Brazilian only signed for Liverpool a few months ago.
