Loads of Liverpool fans have been revving up the Nabil Fekir hype train again, after Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed the World Cup winner will be allowed to leave this summer.
As reported by Sky Sports’ Pete O’Rourke, Aulas has confirmed that Fekir could depart Lyon.
“We have an understanding that he can go. Thanks Nabil for bringing what he brought, we have an understanding to let him go,” he said, and those three key words that “he can go” have sent Liverpool Twitter into meltdown.
Liverpool of course agreed a fee for Fekir back in July 2018, per BBC, but the deal eventually fell through.
Although there is no official word on the reason for the collapse, it is thought to be due to issues that arose in the medical over the player’s surgically repaired knee.
The fee at that time totalled £52.75m, per the BBC’s report, and any concerns over his knee will surely have been eased this season as the 25 year-old played 39 games in all competitions, scoring 12 and assisting nine more.

Yes we should. Our depth has to be super-strong with gamechangers for next season.

Yes take the risk. Him in the team with Salah, Mane and Bobby up front would be devastating
— Craig (@Craig70614642) May 25, 2019
Yes. Would be an exciting addition. Good creative player. Could nick us a few extra points and margins are that tight ?

Fekir is better than Oxlade and Keita or any midfielder. Prime Fekir is better than Firmino Mané Salah before they signed in Liverpool. Klopp could turn him into the same monster
