Door opened for Liverpool to sign midfield magician in January – report

Nabil Fekir

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?

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. I think Klopp could get Fekir for a decent price come Jan as it seems Fekir won’t sign another contract with Lyon and if not sold in Jan then come next summer his transfer fee will be peanuts.. So for me it’s weather Fekir still has his heart on a Liverpool Move and if so Klopp should make the move happen.!!! I also wouldn’t mind an out to out Striker being brought in someone like a Timo Werner who’s got Plenty of Pace and a Deadly Finish which I think we desperately Need plus then there is Pulisic a player that Klopp has been chasing for years and has decided now is the time to make the move to the Premiership from the
    Bundesliga and has his heart on a move to Liverpool it’s said but The likes of Chelsea Man United, Man City , Barcalona etc etc also want him with Chelsea said to have put in a offer last month….Finally with Gomez out Injured for atleast 6 weeks it’s means Lovren will step in to partner VVD so does Klopp go after another CB with Napoli’s man monster Koulibaly said to be available but for a ridiculous £100M but the player I’m thinking of is the Defender that VVD told Klopp would be his ideal Partner and that is None other then his international team mate Matthijs de Ligt of Ajax who has just turned 19 and a Dutch International and will be leaving Ajax by next summer but has many many Followers like Barcalona and Bayern Munich and available for around the €50M and would be my pick and sell Lovren and keep Matip.
    So fellow Kopites let me know what players or positions you think we could do with for the final Push to the end of the season.
