The Reports also claimed that former Liverpool Manager Gerrard Houllier who is an adviser to the French club played a pivotal part in securing a favourable deal for the Reds ahead of Arsenal, who were reportedly keen on luring Fekir to the Emirates regardless on who is named as Manager next season.
An addition to the deal would also be inclusion of Fekirs younger bro Hassan who has earned reviews and highly he’s highly rated amongst Lyon coaching crew and his fellow teammates.
