Liverpool FC reignite interest in signing quality 25-year-old attacker – report
Liverpool FC are set to reignite their bid to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer, say reports
Liverpool FC have reignited their interest in signing Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer, according to reports in France.
French outlet Le Progres, as quoted by The Sun, is reporting that the Reds are considering a move to try and sign the 25-year-old again this summer after failing in their attempt to land him last year.
However, it is claimed in the same story that Liverpool FC are now not willing to pay the £53m transfer fee they are said to have agreed with Lyon last summer.
The same story says that Jurgen Klopp remains “very keen” on signing Fekir this summer as he looks to bolster his squad at Anfield.
Liverpool FC were on the cusp of signing Fekir last year but the move fell through due to concerns Liverpool FC had about an old knee injury.
Fekir scored 12 goals and made nine assists in all competitions for Lyon last season.
The same story claims that Fekir’s transfer value has dropped since last summer because the France international now has only one year left on his current contract.
Fekir was part of the France squad who won the World Cup in Russia last summer.
