Liverpool FC will re-enter negotiations with Lyon to try and sign Nabil Fekir next week after the World Cup is over, according to reports in the French media.

RMC Sport journalist Loic Tanzi, as quoted in the Daily Star, is claiming that the Reds will try to make a fresh move to try and sign the 24-year-old from Lyon after France’s World Cup final clash against Croatia on Sunday.

Fekir was thought to be on the verge of signing for Liverpool FC back in June but the proposed move fell through at the final hour.

Liverpool FC are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of new attacking signings this summer as Jurgen Klopp searches for a long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho at Anfield.

And reporter Tanzi is now claiming that the Reds are likely to reignite their interest in signing Fekir after the World Cup.

Tanzi is quoted as saying in the same Daily Star article: “What I’m sure of, is that that the saga isn’t over. Liverpool will come back for Fekir at the end of the World Cup because he’s a player that Klopp’s been interested in for a while.

“I don’t what the sticking point was, whether it was a financial or medical problem, but if it had been medical, Liverpool would have stopped the transfer right there and then, but at the moment negotiations seem to be going on.

“There’s a possibility that they’re using his knee as a means of paying less, but in the end, they have the money and they know he wants to come.”

Liverpool FC will be looking to be able to challenge for the Premier League title next season as they bid to try and win their first trophy under Klopp.

The Reds finished fourth and reached the Champions League final under the German manager last term.
