Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after a former transfer target for the club in Nabil Fekir reportedly closes in on a new contract with Lyon, as reported by the AnfieldHQ.

The France international and World Cup winner came extremely close to becoming a Liverpool player back in the summer before failing a medical, after concerns arose over his knee which saw his £53m move collapse almost immediately.
Given the fact that the 25-year-old is a sensational player and one fans viewed as a potential Philippe Coutinho replacement, most of the Reds’ fanbase have continued to track the Lyon playmaker’s situation in the months following his failed move.
However, the latest news regarding a new contract for the diminutive No.10 could all but put an end to the fans’ obsession with Fekir.
Naturally, the Liverpool supporters have taken to Twitter to react following the news of a potential new contract…

I still think we should sign him though

Poor lad. We really broke his heart. Lyon is a deadend club. He’s in his prime so should move to a top club.

He’s nearly signing because no one wants him with his possible future knee blow

With a release clause, he doesn’t want his boyhood club losing out on a fee probably
