Fabinho admits he “hoped” Liverpool would sign his Brazilian compatriot Raphinha in the summer transfer window, with the Leeds winger a long-term target.

The pair are growing accustomed to each other on the international stage, but Fabinho was looking to line up alongside Raphinha at club level this season, too.

He is a guy who has a lot of personality, and has already proven that it can help us a lot.” It is likely that Liverpool will seek reinforcements in attack, either in January or next summer, and Raphinha, along with the likes of Jeremy Doku and Arnaut Danjuma, should be a target.

Liverpool have long been credited with an interest in the 24-year-old, who made his Brazil debut with two assists in the 3-1 win over Venezuela earlier this month and will start together with Fabinho against Uruguay on Friday.

In February, the winger was touted as a summer target, though the Yorkshire Post‘s Graham Smyth insisted in June that while the club “definitely have interest,” Liverpool have “never made contact” with Leeds over a deal.

“Since he arrived in the Premier League he has had very good performances and highlights,” he said.

With his skill, pace and ability to decide games, the right-sided attacker seems the perfect fit for Jurgen Klopp‘s attack – as Fabinho told reporters this week, relayed by UOL.
