Nabil Fekir’s agent has insisted that a transfer to Liverpool FC could still be on the cards for the attacker this summer.

The Lyon attacker was heavily linked with a move to Anfield and he was believed to be closing in on a switch to the Merseyside club earlier this month, only for the proposed transfer to fall through at the final hour.

The French club then released a statement claiming that the 24-year-old would definitely be staying with his current employers for next season.

However, there has since been talk that Liverpool FC could try and revive a move to sign Fekir this summer, and the player’s agent Jean-Pierre Bernes has appeared to give the Premier League club hope of concluding a deal for the attacker.

Asked about Liverpool FC’s pursuit of the attacker, Bernes is quoted as saying by Metro: “He didn’t sign because… it is not over! This is not the end of the story.”

Meanwhile, Liverpool FC have already completed their first signing of the summer transfer window after having tied up a deal to bring Fabinho to Anfield from Monaco.

The Reds are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new players this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to assemble a team capable of winning the title next term.
