Liverpool: Pundit reacts to Fabinho sale rumours

Liverpool: Pundit reacts to Fabinho sale rumours -Liverpool News

Pundit Paul Robinson has urged Liverpool to think twice before allowing Fabinho to depart.

The Lowdown: Midfield issues

Despite still ranking as the Premier League’s joint-fourth best defence, the Reds have struggled in comparison to last season, with 17 goals already conceded. At this point, they are just nine goals away from equalling their season total of last year – having played less than half of the games. 

The midfield issues have been a big part of this unfortunate feat, and it could be argued that Fabinho’s loss of form is one of the biggest problems in that area.

That said, Jurgen Klopp has already suffered enough difficulties in midfield over the last season or so and will surely not want to be without his top defensive midfielder, so it is a surprise to see rumours circling that the former Monaco man’s future is ‘in doubt‘.

The Latest: Robinson’s advice

Asked by Football Insider about the chatter now surrounding the Brazilian’s future, Robinson said: “Look, I think we are all a bit quick to forget just how good Fabinho is.

“He has been one of Liverpool’s best players over the past few years.

“They simply cannot sell him until they have a ready-made replacement through the door. Jurgen Klopp has enough problems in midfield without losing a player like Fabinho.

“How much is he worth? It’s a difficult one. I don’t think Liverpool would consider anything less than £50million.

“It is not as if he is old. He still has another three or four years at the very top.

“I wouldn’t say they should keep him at all costs but they certainly need a replacement ready if they are to sell.”

The Verdict: Keep him!

To let a player of Fabinho’s calibre, at the age of 29 – in and around his prime years – would represent a dreadful blunder by the Reds.

Even more so when you consider the fact that Naby Keita looks set to leave, with his contract expiring at the end of the season. 

And while the Guinean’s constant injury issues mean his potential departure is no surprise, Liverpool cannot afford to lose both assets at once considering the lack of depth in the centre of the park is already a problem.
