Liverpool FC remain in a standoff with Lyon over the potential signing of Nabil Fekir, according to French reporter Bilel Ghaz.

The Reds have been heavily linked with a move to sign the France international over the past month or so.

Jurgen Klopp has funds to invest in an attacker after Liverpool FC sold Brazil international Philippe Coutinho in a £142m deal from FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.

Fekir impressed in the 2017-18 season after the attacking midfielder scored 18 goals and made eight assists in 30 games in Ligue 1 to attract interest from Liverpool FC and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

French reporter Ghaz has provided an update on Liverpool FC’s pursuit of Fekir.

“No transfer for Nabil Fekir should take place before tonight & his return to Clairefontaine,” Ghazi wrote on Twitter.

“Negotiations between Lyon & Liverpool have not changed since the beginning of last week.

“And as revealed on Thursday in @lequipe, the recent interest of Bayern Munich can change the game.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table to ensure their participation in the Champions League for the second successive campaign.

The Reds lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League following goals from Karim Benzema and Gareth Bale.

Liverpool FC’s lack of depth was evident on the bench with Klopp lacking options to call upon to replace Mohamed Salah following his injury.

The Reds signed Netherlands international Virgil van Dijk in a £75m deal from Southampton in the January transfer window.
