Fabinho has become a major talking point for Liverpool fans this season.

There was plenty of surprise when Jurgen Klopp limited his game-time during the opening few months and some of his early performances have left a lot to be desired.

Nevertheless, there have still been impressive moments that suggest Fabinho could come good later in the season and establish himself in a competitive midfield system.

The likes of Naby Keita, Jordan Henderson, Georginio Wijnaldum and James Milner make it very difficult to reach a starting XI constructed around the front three. 

Fabinho's displays have even led to speculation that he could be leaving Liverpool, something recently refuted by Klopp himself in a pre-match press conference.

Rumours of Fabinho exit

“Of course he will not leave. I don’t talk about transfers but nobody leaves here, it would be completely crazy," Klopp definitely stated.

“He doesn’t want to, it’s only just the crazy world out there that if they don’t play the last five games they open a transfer market. We are not involved in that.”

However, that doesn't mean clubs won't stop from chasing his signature and another twist in the Fabinho situation could take place in just one day's time.

PSG to make Fabinho approach

That's because a report by L'Equipe has revealed that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in signing the Brazilian, on the eve of their Champions League clash.

The French publication details how PSG plan to manoeuvre themselves towards a January move for Fabinho and could use this week's game to speak to the Liverpool board.

And worrying for the Liverpool fans, it seems the club isn't totally against selling him.

The Reds are willing to lose Fabinho if they recoup the entire transfer fee they paid for him.

It's speculated that a loan deal with a €50 million obligation-to-buy clause could be agreed between the two clubs, if PSG can cough up the money.

With January fast approaching, it would certainly make sense for PSG to start discussions at the Parc des Prince this week.

Although Fabinho hasn't set the Premier League alight this season, his quality is undoubted and he has more than proven himself in Ligue 1.

It would be hard to imagine Klopp wanting to lose him at this stage, though, and with the player himself reluctant, PSG will need to splash the cash to get their way.

However, when your recent history includes mega-money deals for Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, it would be unwise to write anything off.
