Liverpool star Fabinho is reportedly looking to extend his contract with the club and is said to be in the same situation as Virgil van Dijk. The Brazilian has become a key member of Jurgen Klopp’s plans since joining the Reds in a £39m deal back in 2018.

Fabinho currently has three years remaining on his deal with the reigning Premier League champions and Fabrizio Romano is reporting that talks are ongoing about an extension.

Speaking on his ‘Here We Go’ podcast, Romano said: “Talks are going to start for Fabinho to extend his contract with Liverpool.

“It is the same situation [as] Van Dijk, they have the same contract, so two years [remaining] with Liverpool.

“Fabinho wants to extend his contract with Liverpool.

“So, he wants to extend his contract, and next year, I’m convinced he’s going to talk with Liverpool to extend his contract.

“His agents are waiting for a call from Liverpool.

“The situation is so calm because he had a bid, last summer, from a top club in Spain, and he decided to stay at Liverpool.
