Liverpool hope to start negotiations with Fabinho over a new contract soon, the champions considering the Brazil international to be one of the “untouchables” at the club after an impressive first two and a half years there.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from Monaco in 2018 and has grown to become a key member of the squad that won the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League last season.

The 27-year-old has played mainly in central defence this term because of injuries to Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez. His deal runs until 2023 but Liverpool hope to extend that to 2025 or 2026 with a hefty pay rise.
