Phil Thompson is backing Liverpool FC to complete a deal to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer.

The Reds have been linked with a host of players this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

So far, the Merseyside outfit have only brought in Brazilian midfielder Fabinho and midfielder Naby Keita as they look to revamp their squad ahead of next season.

Liverpool FC were heavily linked with a move to sign Fekir from Lyon last summer but a move failed to materialise after the proposed transfer fell through at the final hour.

There have been suggestions that the Reds could look to reignite their bid to sign Fekir this summer, and Liverpool FC legend Thompson feels that a move could still be on the cards.

Speaking in an interview with the Liverpool Echo, Thompson said: “I like the look of Keita. He will give us more goals from that area and he’s a nark – I think we need a bit of that.

“I still think the Nabil Fekir transfer could happen. The deal could get restructured after the World Cup in a way that fits all parties.”

Liverpool FC will be looking to challenge for the Premier League title next season after the Reds ended up in fourth place and without a trophy last term.

The Merseyside outfit are still looking to win their first trophy since Klopp’s appointment at Anfield back in the autumn of 2015.
