According to the reports, the Merseyside club were no longer be convinced about Nabil Fekir’s quality, his current fitness as well as his cost.

While answer was not given to all of these concerns, the Reds had to make a U-turn in the last summer window which is the reason why he has snubbed in the middle of the road.

In addition, Liverpool had to turn attention to Xherdan Shaqiri who was bent on leaving Stoke City and did not cost more than £13 million, a fee that was well affordable by the Merseyside team.
