Fabinho undergoes medical at Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad as £40m move approaches

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has undergone a medical and agreed a three year contract as his £40m move to Al-Ittihad draws closer, MailOnline reports.

Talks were understood to have stalled earlier this week after a paperwork issue, but the move now appears to be back on track.

The delay to Fabinho’s transfer is unconnected to reports that he may be unable to bring his beloved French bulldogs with him to Saudi Arabia amid the country’s strict dog rules.

If he does leave the club, it will end a successful five-year spell at Anfield that saw him win five major trophies.

The Brazil international racked up over 200 appearances in the heart of the Reds’ midfield.

A move to Al Ittihad would see him joining up with the likes of Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, and former Tottenham manager Nuno Espírito Santo.

He was not included on Liverpool’s pre-season tour of Singapore as Jurgen Klopp anticipated his likely exit in the coming weeks.

Fabinho would not be the first key midfielder to leave Klopp’s side this summer after Jordan Henderson confirmed his £12m move to Steven Gerrard’s Al-Ettifaq.
