PSG edge closer to signing Monaco defensive midfielder Fabinho

Paris Saint-Germain are planning a move for Fabinho.

According to a report from Calciomercato, Paris Saint-Germain are edge closer to signing Monaco defensive midfielder Fabinho.

The Brazil international was signed by Monaco in July 2015 from Rio Ave for a fee of 6 million euros. The 24-year-old has a contract until 2021 with the club.

Since his arrival from Rio Ave, Fabinho has scored 30 goals and provided 21 assists in 225 games for Monaco, including seven goals and five assists in 38 games in all competitions this season.

The 24-year-old is considered to be one of the best defensive midfielders in Brazil.

The Brazil international will be high in demand this summer, with him having enjoyed a sublime season for Monaco this term.

Paris Saint-Germain shortlist Fabinho as prime transfer target in the upcoming summer transfer window.

The French giants have built a reputation for recruiting young talent, predominantly targeting those with sell-on value and immense potential.

Paris Saint-Germain want to continue to strengthening their squad so they’re able to compete both domestically and in the Champions League next season.

Fabinho has the talent to play many roles in midfield.

According to Caliciomercato (via Canal +), “According to Canal + Journalist Olivier Tallaron, Fabinho is very close to joining PSG. PSG are likely to spend heavily on bolstering their squad during their summer especially in light of their disappointing Champions League last-16 elimination at the hands of Real Madrid. The 24-year-old Fabinho is one of the best defensive midfielders in the Ligue 1 and played a huge role in helping the club win the French top flight last season. It is perhaps just a matter of time before he leaves Monaco and it would not be surprising if he ends up joining PSG as he was on the brink of arriving at the French capital last summer.”

Monaco are not in a position where they need to sell and would like to keep hold of the defensive midfielder, but right offer may force the club to consider a deal.

Stylistically, he would be a great fit in Paris Saint-Germain.

If he turns out to be a star like many expect, it could be one of the club’s smartest transfers.

Whether he will join Paris Saint-Germain or not remains to be seen.
