LIVERPOOL boss Jurgen Klopp reportedly has a four-man shortlist of potential replacements for Fabinho.

The Brazilian midfielder, 29, looks set for a £40million transfer to Saudi Pro-League side Al-Ittihad.

Liverpool are already in the middle of a huge midfield overhaul with the signings of Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai confirmed.

Now Sky Sports reporter Melissa Reddy has made the claim on Twitter that they have their eyes on four targets that could fill the void left by Fabinho should he head to the Middle East.

But she insisted that the Kop boss has no interest in bringing in 21-year-old Ecuadorian Moises Caicedo to link back up with his former Brighton midfield partner Mac Allister.

Reddy tweeted: “Liverpool had been assessing longer-term candidates to replace Fabinho. Profile might shift as they’ll require an immediate starter.


“Among the names mooted have been Sofyan Amrabat, Ryan Gravenberch, Kalvin Phillips and Romeo Lavia… Moises Caicedo not on their list.”

The 26-year-old Amrabat is a man in demand this summer with several clubs keen on snapping him up, including Manchester United.

Amrabat’s agent recently revealed that Fiorentina are open to the idea of letting the Moroccan go, but only if a suitable offer is received.

Dutch midfielder Gravenberch, 21, had been linked with several Premier League clubs after a difficult debut season with Bayern Munich.


After completing a £16m move from Ajax last summer, Gravenberch scored once in 33 appearances across all competitions.

However, he was limited to just three league starts as he failed to establish himself under both Julian Nagelsmann and Thomas Tuchel.

Despite his underwhelming debut season, though, Gravenberch has revealed his determination to stay and fight for his place.

Phillips joined Man City for over £40m last summer but injuries and fitness issues limited him to just two league starts.

Although Pep Guardiola’s side won the treble, Phillips played just 21 times across all competitions for a combined 593 minutes and West Ham have also been linked with an interest in him.

Meanwhile Lavia, 19, left City for Southampton 12 months ago for £12.5m.


And despite their relegation to the Championship, he had a fine season with 34 appearances in all competitions.

Lavia has since been linked with a move to Mauricio Pochettino’s Chelsea in a deal worth over £50m.

But other reports have claimed that Arsenal want him to partner Declan Rice in their midfield.
