Fabinho medical, Henderson claim & Bradley’s injury – Latest LFC News

Things have have begun to move quickly for Liverpool in the transfer window.


Fabinho undergoes medical

Fabinho‘s move to Al Ittihad seems to finally be going through after the Brazilian was pictured at a medical facility in Dubai.

According to Itti Mania, who posted the photo, the midfielder was there “to conduct the second part of the medical examination before completing his transfer.”

The move for Fabinho was first reported on July 13, but the £40 million deal has taken a while to go through due to issues believed to be relating to Al Ittihad’s financing.

Now the Brazilian has completed his medical, the proof of funds will have been provided and Liverpool will want the transfer done so they can push ahead in their pursuit of Romeo Lavia.

The Reds have already had a £37 million bid rejected by Southampton for the midfielder, but are expected to return with a higher offer.
