Sadio Mane has admitted that he would love to link up with Nabil Fekir at Liverpool FC next season.

The Lyon attacker has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and he has been touted as a target for both Liverpool FC and Arsenal in recent seasons.

Fekir has been in fine form for Lyon this season, scoring 17 goals and making seven assist in Ligue 1 for the French outfit.

The 24-year-old has been strongly linked with a move to Liverpool FC in recent days, even if manager Jurgen Klopp insisted he knew nothing of the reports over the weekend.

Liverpool FC slumped to a disappointing 1-0 loss to Chelsea FC in the top flight at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon as they suffered a blow to their top-four ambitions.

Mane was quizzed about the possibility of linking up with Fekir at Anfield next season after the reports linking the Reds with the France international.

And the Senegal international has indicated that he would be keen to link up with the talented attacker.

Speaking to French outlet SFR Sport, Mane said: “Nabil is a very exciting player.

“He could do beautiful things here and he will enjoy his time with us. We always need players like him and if he joins us it will be fire.”

Liverpool FC will aim to book their place in the top four this season by beating Brighton at Anfield on Sunday.
