The Frenchmen was on the verge of completing a switch to England with the Reds agreeing a 48 million pounds deal with Lyon. However, the move fell through at the last minute over concerns of the state of his knee with Fekir suffering a third knee injury is as many seasons.
But reports still claim the Reds are still heavily keen on the player as Jurgen Klopp looks to reinvest the sales accrued from Phillipe Coutinho’s departure to Barcelona on a 142 million pounds deal in January
And Sky sports news reporter Peter Graves believes the Merseysiders could still snap up the 24- year -old from the French club before the transfer window comes to a close in the early days of September.
‘’It is a really tricky one’’ Graves stated to a Transfer Talk Podcast
‘’ The agent is desperate for the deal to happen; the player wants to move to Liverpool, one of the biggest clubs in the world. The quietness from Liverpool makes me think a deal is not going to happen’’ he further stated.
Notwithstanding, Klopp seems intent on making further additions after reiterating his complaints on the lack of squad depth over the previous season.
The Merseysiders have already acquired defensive midfielder Fabinho from As Monaco and are set to welcome Guinean Naby Keita next month.
Meanwhile, Fekir is now the subject of reported interest from Chelsea, with the London club are monitoring the aftermath of the transfer saga and could seek to pounce in on the player’s desperation in starring for a Premier League club
