The Brazlian, 24, who's to maneuver to Anfield on July 1, is to be transferred in a deal that may very well be value greater than $50 million, reports mentioned.
Fabinho becomes Liverpool's first summer signing along with Naby Keita, who is due to arrive at the club, but the deal had been in place since last summer.
"I am really excited about this move".
"He can play No 6, 8 and 2". This is cool. He is tactically very strong and football smart.
It begins: "Jurgen Klopp looked ahead to Saturday's Champions League final with Real Madrid and declared: 'We are here because we are Liverpool'". Considered a right-back in his early days, it was not until the second half of the 2014-15 season that Leonardo Jardim moved him to the defensive midfield berth - which proved to be a masterstroke. For a few years he has shown his quality.
Probably not too much, in all honesty, although his tactical flexibility will certainly come in handy.

The Lyon ace is attracting plenty of interest off the back of an impressive season, scoring 23 goals in 40 appearances.
"If I will sign somewhere before the World Cup?".
Fabinho's arrival will all but guarantee Emre Can leaves the club, with his contract set to expire.
And Fabinho believes he will also adapt, adding, "I believe I am a player that can organise the game well for my team". His agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, has told us so.
Liverpool fans will still be licking their wounds after their first Champions League final in eleven years went badly south in Kiev.
Another player heavily linked with the Reds is Brazil No. 1 Alisson.
Completing Fabinho's transfer within 48 hours of losing Saturday's Champions League Final to Real Madrid forms the first part of a strategy meant to improve Klopp's options in all areas of his squad.
Liverpool can compete with the best teams in the Premier League and beyond.
