Liverpool call off plan to sign Pulisic to return for Nabil Fekir

Liverpool have reportedly lost the race to sign Christian Pulisic to Chelsea and may revive their interest in Nabil Fekir in January.

The Reds ensured their unbeaten run in the Premier League this season stretched to 20 games with their 17th win of the season coming in a 5-1 mauling of Unai Emery’s Arsenal at Anfield on Saturday evening.

The pressure on Manchester City and Spurs is mounting. Neither side can afford to drop any points in the next few rounds of fixtures and with the former hosting Liverpool at the Etihad next week, the title race could be firmly in Liverpool’s hands in early January.

Of course, the beautiful football being played at Anfield has done nothing to dissuade fans from believing that a top class playmaker is still needed with many calling out for January swoops for either Pulisic or Fekir, with some even wanting Isco.

A speculative article from the Express suggests that Liverpool pulled out of the race to sign Christian Pulisic as opposed to being beaten to his signature and that this points to a plot unfurling at Liverpool.

Supposedly, the Reds called off the plan to sign Pulisic because Fekir’s form this season has further convinced them that spending £40m+ on Fekir is a risk worth taking despite the issues that were found during his medical in the summer.

The Frenchman has been key for Lyon once again this season and although Liverpool are not struggling to score goals this season with 19 goals scored in the last 6 games, further quality in midfield will not go amiss.
