Liverpool working to extend Fabinho’s contract; Konate deal is DONE

Liverpool have managed to qualify for the Champions League next season on the back of an intense, injury-ridden season. Over the course of 20/21, Fabinho has been one of the key players for Jürgen Klopp, with the Brazilian working as a centre-back in the absence of numerous first-choice options. 

The Merseyside club is now working to extend his contract, and have officially begun talks with him. They see him as a key player for the future and ideally want him to stay for the years to come. Fabinho himself wants to continue playing for Liverpool and is positive about extending his stay at Anfield. 

The player joined Liverpool from Monaco on the back of their title-winning 2016 and has since established himself as one of the undisputed starters in midfield. His defensive contributions are crucial in Liverpool’s optimal performances. 

Keeping to the defensive side of things, Ibrahima Konate is also expected to be announced as a Liverpool player soon. Personal terms have been agreed with the French centre-back since April, and only the negotiations with RB Leipzig were remaining to be finalised.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano, Liverpool will trigger the player’s release clause and officially sign the player in the next few days. He underwent his medicals for the transfer a few days ago and has passed the test successfully. 

Liverpool will pay €35 million for the defender, and he will sign a contract until 2026.
