According to reports from France, Liverpool will contact Lyon after the Champions League final to open discussions for Nabil Fekir.
There is no doubting that Saturday’s Champions League final showdown will be the most important date on the calendar for Jürgen Klopp in the foreseeable future but with next season impossible to ignore, the German will also have his transfer targets in mind.
No matter the result in Kiev, Klopp and his sporting director Michael Edwards will already have a good idea of who they want to target this summer.
Widespread reports indicate that Nabil Fekir is Liverpool’s priority transfer target and that the Frenchman is being targeted to replace Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January.
With the Ligue 1 season over after a final round of fixtures this weekend, Nabil Fekir now has his future to attend to as well as an exciting World Cup campaign to look forward to.
With 23 goals and 7 assists this season, Fekir has staked his claim to be one of the top attacking midfielders in Europe and moving to Liverpool will only serve to enhance his reputation.
Under a manager like Klopp, the Lyon captain can develope even further and become one of the best players in Europe in the next few years.
