Nabil Fekir wants a move to Liverpool FC but Lyon don’t want to see the France international until after the World Cup, according to David Maddock.

The Reds have been heavily linked with a move to sign the France star in the summer transfer window to bolster Jurgen Klopp’s attacking options.

Fekir has been touted as a possible long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho after the Brazil international moved to FC Barcelona in a £142m deal in the January transfer window.

Liverpool FC have funds to spend on some new attacking talent as Klopp looks to add more depth to his squad ahead of a potential title challenge next term.

Fekir scored 18 goals and made eight assists in 30 games in Ligue 1 in the current campaign to earn interest from the Merseyside outfit.

Daily Mirror reporter Maddock provided a detailed update on Liverpool FC’s pursuit of Fekir in the summer transfer window.

Maddock wrote on Twitter: “Fekir did NOT travel to Liverpool this weekend. No deal imminent. He has told Lyon he wants to go, but discussions still in formative stages, with French club president Jean-Michel Aulas keen to wait until after World Cup in hope of fee increase. Fekir will leave and wants @LFC”

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to Spanish side Real Madrid in the Champions League final to lose their third consecutive showpiece under Klopp.

The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term ahead of Chelsea FC to secure their continued participation in the Champions League.
