Lost in the celebratory messages over Fabinho’s spanking new extension was this particular tweet by Dominic King:
Liverpool have confirmed a new long term deal for Fabinho, story first flagged in May.— Dominic King (@DominicKing_DM) August 3, 2021
Celtic, Sheffield United and Bournemouth, meanwhile, all interested in signing Ben Davies. Sheff U have had an initial loan enquiry turned down
In summary, Ben Davies has a host of suitors waiting on him, should he decide to leave the club. Celtic isn’t too surprising, as that was whom he was supposed to go to before Liverpool jumped in and signed him in January. Sheffield United’s transfer wishlist seems to have way too many Liverpool fringe players on it, and Bournemouth, after a brief spell of no-interest in our players, is back at it again.
With substantial interest in both Ben Davies and Nathaniel Phillips, as well as the first-team defenders plus new signing Ibrahima Konate ahead of them, it seems likely that at least one of them will depart. For Davies, a departure before featuring in a competitive fixture for Liverpool FC would certainly mark the end to one of the briefest and strangest tenures at the club.
