LFC could make January move for Fekir after latest development

Nabil Fekir

Reports indicate that Chelsea rejected the chance to sign Nabil Fekir this summer after deciding that they are well-stocked in attacking midfield positions.

Watching Liverpool against West Ham last weekend, you might not have thought that the Anfield outfit is short on creativity as Naby Keïta, Gini Wijnaldum and James Milner combined to create more than enough openings in the final third.

To be fair, the Hammers kept a very high defensive line which did create more space than the likes of Burnley would and with Crystal Palace waiting for Jürgen Klopp’s side at Selhurst Park on Monday, it might provide an insight into Liverpool’s ability to create against low block defences.

Many still believe that Nabil Fekir is a player that is needed on Merseyside and there have already been tentative suggestions that Klopp could make a move for him in January.

According to Goal reporter Nizaar Kinsella, Chelsea rejected the chance to sign Fekir late in the summer transfer window as they already have a number of players more than capable of doing a job in the final third of the pitch.

With Willian, Pedro and Hazard all capable of wreaking havoc from central positions, Sarri chose to focus his attention on sign Mateo Kovacic and Kepa to strengthen weaker areas of his side.

This decision could lead to Liverpool making a January move for Fekir if they can come to a new agreement with Lyon after they pulled out as a result of the Frenchman’s injury record.

The Ligue 1 side have shown they are open to selling and even if they would prefer to hold onto their skipper, it really does seem like a matter of time until he leaves.

Just like you, I am a hugely passionate Liverpool supporter. I started Rousing the Kop in January 2015 and since then it has grown tremendously and has even been nominated as 'Best New Football Blog' in the Football Blogging Awards.


  1. Oh Stop it. Click bait. Tired of Nabil Fekir will he wont he with no evidence to say he will. This went on throughout the summer, you and others pushing the narrative.

    The club have moved on, why cant you?

  2. This whole Fekir affair has gone on for far too long but like any player if the price is right I’m sure Klopp would jump at the chance of bringing in the guy.

  3. I’m sick and tired of this constant stream of stories about Fecker. LFC will not risk serious money on him, end of story.
