Al Ittihad plans to make a formal bid to purchase Fabinho from Liverpool as they continue their spending spree.

After a disappointing 2022/2023 season Liverpool have made a move in the transfer market and could let some old legs leave this summer.

Fabinho has drawn interest from Saudi Arabia and could move before the end of the summer transfer window.

The midfielder from Brazil has three more years left on his current deal, which runs through 2026.

The 29-year-old Brazilian international is projected to fetch £40 million in the Saudi Pro League club's offer, and it's assumed that a decision will be made swiftly.

Al-Ittihad move for Fabinho

According to reports, Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad are preparing an offer for the Brazilian international Fabinho.

David Ornstein of the Athletic posted on his Twitter account saying, “Al-Ittihad set to make a concrete bid to sign Fabinho from Liverpool for £40m. Expected to develop fast one way or another.”

Jurgen Klopp is trying to rebuild his midfield for next season and has brought in two new players into the team.

Liverpool looking for Fabinho’s replacement

With the recent news suggesting that Fabinho could move this summer, Liverpool are also working on bringing a replacement into the team.

David Ornstein said, “Key issue for Liverpool is letting No 6 go without replacement but working on this - Romeo Lavia among multiple options”

Liverpool have identified Romeo Lavia, including other options as a possible replacement for the Brazilian if he leaves this summer.

The Reds also let players like James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain leave when their contracts expired in June, and Fabio Carvalho recently signed a season-long loan with RB Leipzig.
