Liverpool considering fresh Nabil Fekir transfer bid

Liverpool will not be resurrecting a deal for Lyon’s Nabil Fekir

Following the collapse of Liverpool's £52.75 million deal to sign Lyon's Nabil Fekir last summer, reports in France claim it could now be revived for a lower fee.

Last Summer the Reds nearly agreed on a deal to bring Fekir to Anfield, agreeing a £53 million fee for the midfielder and even taking pictures of him in a Liverpool shirt.

Fekir has already conducted media duties with LFCTV, including an interview wearing the Liverpool shirt, and was set to become the third signing of an ambitious summer.

Yet having been linked with numerous other English clubs after the failed transfer, Fekir is now being linked with Liverpool again.

Fekir was part of the French squad that lifted the World Cup in Russian Federation previous year and enjoyed another productive season at Lyon.

"Thanks Nabil for bringing what he brought, we have an understanding to let him go".

Leader Jeremy Corbyn established the Chakrabati inquiry in 2016 to investigate the state of racism within the party's ranks. Corbyn's supporters say he is wrongfully accused of anti-Semitism for merely promoting Palestinian rights.

Liverpool only need tweaks this summer but it's important to keep recruiting and improving from a position of strength - and if they can get Fekir, a player they have clearly scouted at length and like - for a knockdown price then they should go for it.

L'Equipe reporter Vincent Duluc recently declared that Lyon could sell Fekir for as little as €15m (£13.3m) despite the loss that would represent given the fee they stood to make 12 months ago.

This would be worth around £70,000 a week, and this combined with a potential fee of almost half that agreed last summer could make Fekir a bargain signing.

Jurgen Klopp's side have pre-season games at Tranmere and Bradford ahead of a trip to America for matches against Borussia Dortmund, Sevilla and Sporting, before returning to face Napoli at Murrayfield and Lyon in Geneva on July 31.

Liverpool will play Lyon in a friendly next month and experts believe that the two clubs will sit down for negotiations during this time.

Klopp had wanted World Cup victor Fekir given his ability to play in multiple attacking roles, including as a No 10 but also as a deputy for false nine Roberto Firmino.
