Report: Liverpool reignite Nabil Fekir interest

Jurgen Klopp has reignited his interest in Nabil Fekir and could make a move to sign the Frenchman this summer, according to Le Progres.

After a £53million move to Anfield last summer was called off, it seemed as though the Reds would not revisit the possibility of signing Fekir.

A year on, however, and the midfielder only has 12 months left on his Lyon contract and didn’t perform as well as he did during the 2017/18 season.

Le Progres claim that Liverpool are once again looking into the possibility of signing the playmaker which would once and for all plug the gap left in the middle of the park by Philippe Coutinho.

The Brazilian left the club in January 2018 and Klopp is yet to sign a creative midfielder to provide his squad with a more natural playmaking option than what he made use of this season.

Fekir has contributed directly to 51 goals since the start of last season and is a much better playmaker than any midfielder currently plying their trade at Anfield.

Vincent Duluc, who is very close to Lyon, reported earlier this month that Fekir will be free to leave this summer if a club pays £13.2million which is sure to interest Liverpool.

If Michael Edwards can engineer a move at that price for Fekir, it would have saved the club £39.8million after his £53m move to Anfield collapsed last summer.
