Despite being on the potential cusp of a first league title for close to 30 years, this Liverpool team need some changes. In the summer, though, talks is that Jurgen Klopp and the Reds will look to keep their transfer business rather more serene. With the aim more to keep players than move names on, it’ll be interesting to see how Liverpool handle the transfer window to come. One name who keeps coming back up, though, is that of Nabil Fekir.
The France World Cup winner was supposed to join the summer of 2018, when the move collapsed after medical concerns. With previous knee injuries having caused doubt, the 25-year-old instead stayed in Lyon. However, it appears that he could move on this summer, with French media reporting that Lyon have an agreement in principle with their captain to let him move on at the end of the year.
With a strong season under his belt once again, Liverpool won’t be the only ones to likely take a look. For Fekir, though, the interest from Liverpool was in the past very much real. With the move so close, he’d clearly be keen to be there himself. However, with Liverpool struggling in a creative sense from midfield at times this season, another playmaker would be seen as a very welcome addition.
Whether that happens to be Fekir or someone else, the talk is that Liverpool will look to bolster midfield at one stage – if the deal is right. With Fekir having been a tremendous servant for Lyon, that deal could become a little more affordable to take the risk on someone with his previous injury record.
Whoever makes use of that agreement, though, is getting a tremendous footballer.
