According to a recent report by Express Sport, Liverpool could revive a deal to secure the services of Nabil Fekir from Olympique Lyonnais during the summer transfer window. The same source has mentioned that the Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is still interested in bringing the French talent to Merseyside with Lyon willing to entertain offers for their prized asset in this offseason.
Fekir’s Outstanding Season In France
The Lyon-born talent has enjoyed another productive season in the Ligue 1 after putting in a string of goal-scoring displays for Sylvinho’s side in the recently concluded French top-flight campaign. Fekir has found the back of the net on 12 occasions while creating nine assists in 39 appearances for Lyon last season in all competitions.
He was close to joining Liverpool last summer, but the move fell through at the final hurdle. However, the Reds would be foolish not to reignite their interest on the French midfielder especially after he proved his worth in France once again last season.
Fekir can benefit from signing for the new European champions as he would be able to compete for major silverware at Anfield in the coming years. The Reds can also use a player of Fekir’s skillset to help them pip Manchester City to the Premier League title next season.
What Will The French Midfielder Bring To Anfield?
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner has justified his value on the pitch over the past couple of seasons. Fekir has decent pace and is an excellent dribbler with the ball in the opposition half. He can also score and assist goals consistently, which has made him one of the most feared attackers in the top tier of France.
Furthermore, he can open up the meanest of defences with his through passes from midfield that could greatly benefit Liverpool if they can lure Fekir to Merseyside this summer. The French international has the potential to become a world-class number 10, so hopefully, he would look to fulfil his ambitions at Anfield next season.
One can argue that the Reds are yet to bring in a like for like replacement for Phillipe Coutinho, who left the Merseyside club at the beginning of last year. So Fekir could be the ideal candidate to fill in as the new creative force in Klopp’s midfield over the new few years.
