Liverpool fans want Nabil Fekir at the club after Vincent Duluc claimed the Frenchman is available this summer for £13.2million.
The OL journalist said: “Fekir is announced on departure by Jean-Michel Aulas himself and I think that even for 15 million euros, he is ready to sell it.
“This is a really unique record in the Mercato Lyon because internally, we were really scalded by his aborted transfer to Liverpool last year.”
Liverpool reportedly pulled the plug on a £53m move for Fekir last summer after it emerged he had a dodgy knee and when Lyon refused to lower the price to negate the risk of signing him, a deal was abandoned.
This was particularly brutal for the playmaker as he had already conducted media duties with LFCTV as a move was virtually agreed but Liverpool’s medical staff warned the club against a move.
Now, however, he is apparently available for such a low fee that it wouldn’t make sense to not make a move to sign him.

If, and it's a big if, it's true he should Benin the next plane to Liverpool at that price. Even if you only get a season or so before the dreaded knee goes bad they should take a chance.

Klopp likes to wait for the right player 👀👀

Liverpool wanted Fekir last summer even though they had just bought Naby Keita and were expecting Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain back fit by the end of the season.
It’s not unreasonable to expect that Jurgen Klopp still holds an interest in signing a new play-maker now even if he has moved on from the whole Fekir Friday fiasco.
Hopefully, that’s not the case.
