Liverpool star Fabinho has put pen to paper on a fresh five-year deal, keeping the Brazilian at Anfield until 2026.
The versatile midfielder is the latest big name at Anfield to commit his long-term future to the reds, as the club step up their mission to secure their key senior players on fresh terms.
Fabinho joins the England international Trent Alexander-Arnold in committing to the English giants after the defender recently signing on until June 2025 to become one of the club’s top earners.
Sportsmail reports that a bumper extension deal for shot-stopper Alisson Becker is next on the list of top priorities at Liverpool.
Fabinho arrived in a £43.7 million deal from Monaco in 2018 and was unveiled a day after Liverpool’s 2018 UEFA Champions League final defeat to then-Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid in Kiev.
Since, the South American has become a permanent fixture in the Reds’s first-team and has played an influential role in helping Liverpool become both European champions and Premier League champions.
Last term Fabinho found his versatility much used by Jurgen Klopp because of a defensive crisis.
He was deployed at centre-half, along with club skipper Jordan Henderson or untested duo Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams, before returning to midfield in the latter part of the term.
