Fabinho has revealed that he will try to convince former Monaco team-mate abd World Cup winner, Kylian Mbappe to leave PSG and join him at Liverpoolin the future.

Brazilian midfielder Fabinho swapped the Ligue 1 side for Liverpool in a deal worth €45 million (£39m/$52m) as the Reds embarked on something of a summer transfer spending spree.

Jurgen Klopp has also signed Xherdan Shaqiri and Alisson Becker in the summer window, as the Merseysiders look to close the gap on Premier League champions Manchester City in the 2018-19 campaign.

And now Fabinho wants Mbappe, who was one of the stand-out performers at the World Cup as he scored four goals to help propel Didier Deschamps’ to the title, to join him at Anfield.

“He [Mbappe] has already said this season he will remain at PSG, but I will try to slowly to convince him to come over,” Fabinho said.

Mbappe’s PSG team-mate Neymar, meanwhile, has revealed that he is staying at PSG despite strong links with Real Madrid, with the Frenchman having also been suggested as a possible target for the Champions League winners.
But teenage sensation Mbappe is also keen to stay put, as the Ligue 1 champions look to challenge for honours both domestically and in Europe.

Despite Mbappe leaving Monaco at the start of the 2017-18 season, Fabinho has revealed that the duo still stay in touch, with the French striker having contacted his former team-mate to congratulate him on his move to Anfield.
He added: “Kylian Mbappe sent me a text message congratulating me for coming to Liverpool. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to congratulate him for what he did during this World Cup.

“What France did was fantastic. What Mbappe did in two years of professional football is amazing. He is a phenomenon and needs to be congratulated, and as soon as I have the chance I will.”
