Liverpool target Nabil Fekir opens door to move away from Lyon

Grant SmithAug 07, 2018

Liverpool were concerned by medical reports on a previous knee injury, and pulled the plug on the transfer as a result when Lyon refused to re-structure the deal.

In a recent interview with German media house Kicker, Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey revealed that there has been genuine interest from Premier League clubs, Liverpool and Chelsea, this summer.

The Brazilian rejoined the Reds squad in France this week, after his involvement in this summer's World Cup.

"We will see what happens", Klopp said on the subject of potential last-minute transfers after beating Napoli 5-0 in Dublin, according to Sky Sports News.

Despite spending over £160m on four new players this summer, Jurgen Klopp suggested over the weekend that further signings may be possible at Liverpool.

'Maybe we will do some magic things with the formation on Tuesday. "I am very good here", he told

Keita has filled the vacant number eight at Liverpool FC to become the first player to wear the prestigious shirt since club legend Steven Gerrard left in 2015. We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.It's a bit like the French team: there is a mix between young and old, with more experienced players than others. I am very good here. Liverpool made Alisson the most expensive goalkeeper of all time last month when they and Roma struck a deal which could eventually reach €72.5million.

Liverpool have continued to monitor Fekir's situation and the Mirror claim they remain interested in taking the playmaker to Anfield as Jurgen Klopp looks to finally replace Philippe Coutinho following his January move to Barcelona.

"We need to be ready each week, not only for a few games".
