Lyon are prepared to allow Nabil Fekir to leave in January as the Frenchman runs his contract with the Ligue 1 outfit down.

The Reds pulled the plug on a deal to sign the World Cup champion in June for £53million and while there has been very little to suggest that a deal can be resurrected, fans on social media have been crying out for Klopp to revisit the possibility.

With Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain out injured for most of the season and Philippe Coutinho soaking up the sun rays in Barcelona, there has been a lack of creativity and driving force in the centre of the pitch.

Naby Keita looked sublime against Burnley on Wednesday but he is more of a no.8 while a no.10 is what is really required at Anfield.

 

Earlier this week, it emerged that club president Jean-Michel Aulas has told Fekir that he has until the end of the year to either agree to a new contract or inform Lyon that he will not be signing a new deal.

He said:” The aim, is to have a clear and precise position from his point of view between now and the end of the year.”

Now, L’Equipe report that Lyon are ready to sell him in January if interest is shown as they look to avoid having to sell him for next to nothing in the summer as his contract expires in 18 months.

Do you think Liverpool will move again for Fekir or has that ship sailed as it did in August?
