Reporter claims Lyon president has agreed to revive Nabil Fekir’s Liverpool FC move
Daily Mirror reporter David Maddock claims Liverpool FC could still sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir this summer
Nabil Fekir could still end up at Liverpool FC this summer after Lyon president Jean Michael Aulas agreed to revive a deal, Daily Mirror reporter David Maddock has claimed.
The France international was on the brink of becoming a Liverpool FC player earlier this summer but a deal fell through at the final minute due to concerns over Fekir’s medical.
Fekir was so close to linking up with Jurgen Klopp’s squad that he is believed to have selected his squad number and conducted interviews with LFC TV ahead of an official announcement.
Liverpool FC agreed to a £53m transfer fee for the 24-year-old before Lyon ended discussion following the Merseyside outfit’s attempt to restructure a deal.
However, Daily Mirror journalist Maddock is reporting that Aulas is open to selling Fekir to the Anfield outfit this summer but Lyon will need to make some amendments to the original deal.
Maddock wrote on Twitter: “Fekir met Lyon president at World Cup – pleaded for chance to still join LFC. Aulas agreed to revive talks. @LFC no interest in deal on previously agreed £53m terms, may be persuaded by restructured terms. @OL lining up Ziyech as potential replacement”
Liverpool FC have already signed Brazil international Fabinho in a £40m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the summer transfer window.
RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita finally completed his switch to Liverpool FC from the Bundesliga outfit after the Reds struck a £48m arrangement last summer.
