Liverpool were heavily linked with Raphinha last summer and in a recent interview, Fabinho has revealed that he thought the Leeds forward would sign for the Reds.
Last summer, Liverpool were linked with a lot of wingers, from West Ham's Jarrod Bowen to Juventus' Federico Chiesa.
As we now know, none of them ended up joining the Reds but there were some interesting links.
One of those was Leeds United's Brazilian winger Raphinha.
The Leeds man had a very good debut in the Premier League, scoring six goals and getting nine assists.
It was reported early on that Liverpool were showing an interest in bringing him to Anfield according to multiple source.
Fabinho Admits He Thought Raphinha Would Join Liverpool Last Summer
It seems like Liverpool fans weren't the only ones hoping that Raphinha would sign for the Reds either.
Liverpool midfielder and Raphinha's Brazilian teammate Fabinho, recently spoke about how he expected it to happen.
"Raphinha, since he arrived in the Premier League, has been performing and standing out very well at Leeds.
"Even in the summer transfer market, there was some talk that he could go to Liverpool, I even expected that to happen, but he stayed at Leeds.
"Today he is the best player in Leeds. Whenever a team is going to play against them, they know that Raphinha is the player who can cause the most danger."
