Reporter claims Liverpool FC don’t need to worry about 24-year-old asking price
Ligue 1 expert Jonathan Joseph doesn't believe Liverpool FC target Nabil Fekir's asking price has increased during the World Cup
Liverpool FC won’t have to worry about Nabil Fekir’s transfer fee increasing after the World Cup, according to French football expert Jonathan Johnson.
The France international has been regularly linked with a move to Liverpool FC since the conclusion of the Premier League campaign last month.
Fekir was thought to be close on a £57m move to Liverpool FC from Lyon earlier this month as the Reds looked to improve their attacking options.
However, the France international’s deal fell through after concerns emerged about the 24-year-old’s long-standing injury problem.
Fekir was even reported to have selected his number at the Anfield outfit before the proposed transfer collapse
Although the France playmaker’s move is off for now, Liverpool FC continue to be linked with a swoop to sign the Lyon capital after the World Cup.
Sky Sports News reporter Johnson doesn’t believe Fekir’s valuation has gone up as a result of the World Cup.
“The way the World Cup has hone for Fekir, I wouldn’t say there has been value added to his transfer fee,” Johnson told the Transfer Talk podcast.
“The further France go, a bit of money could be added on to the asking price.”
Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final in Kiev last month.
The Reds finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last term to secure a spot in the Champions League in successive seasons.
