Liverpool Handed Huge Boost Ahead Of Deadline Day As Target Keeps Door Open For Possible Move Away

According to Liverpool Echo, as cited by The Kop Times, Liverpool can be in with a last-ditch chance to land their long-term target Nabil Fekir despite the defiance from the Ligue 1 club Lyon. The 25-year-old has been the most talked about name linked with a move to Liverpool and was even on the verge of joining Liverpool earlier this summer, with the Reds pulling the plug on the deal during his medical.

However, the report states that the French World Cup winner is still open to a move to Anfield, which comes as a major boost for the Reds. In a recent interview, the player claimed that he is happy at Lyon but there is every chance of a last-minute move as long as the transfer window is open.

He said, “I am very happy here (in Lyon).

“But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very quickly in football.”

The report also indicates that Liverpool’s Premier League rivals Chelsea are interested in the player but the Blues’ inability to play in the Champions League, as they failed to qualify among the top four Premier League clubs is sure to be a stumbling block in their pursuit of the player.

The player also had his say about playing in the premier club competition, “It is important to play in it. Lyon are an ambitious club which always wants to progress, fight at the top of the table and be present in major competitions.

“We are lucky to be able to play in this magnificent competition.”
