Fabinho set to enter new contract talks with Liverpool

Fabinho is set to enter new contract talks with Liverpool.

ESPN says the 27-year-old is set to hold talks with Liverpool chiefs over extending his current terms after proving himself to be crucial for the Premier League champions.

Jurgen Klopp will sleep a little easier knowing he has Fabinho ready to step in and help the defence when needed, and is keen to ensure he commits his future to the club beyond his remaining two years, the report adds.

He has featured in all five of the team's Premier League games this season, starting four times and playing the full 90 minutes on all of those occasions.

Fabinho's performances in defence have earned plaudits from team-mate Giorginio Wijnaldum, saying his versatility was 'a good thing for the team'.
