Journalist provides fresh Fekir update, Liverpool fans go crazy

The story of Nabil Fekir and Liverpool has turned into somewhat of a transfer saga, with variations of the situation being reported all the time.

The latest has come from David Maddock of The Mirror, who has reported that the attacking midfielder has pleaded with Lyon to let him move to Anfield.

The publication states that club owner Jean Michel Aulas has agreed to open talks, but as it stands, Liverpool are not willing to stick to the initial deal of £53m.

The Reds walked away from negotiations due to concerns over a previous knee injury, but Maddock suggests that the club could be persuaded to come to an agreement if the terms changed.

Liverpool fans have made it clear on social media numerous times that they want Fekir to join the club this summer.

The Merseyside outfit are yet to replace Philippe Coutinho, who left to join Barcelona in January, and some supporters think that Fekir is the perfect fit.

On Twitter, plenty of fans reacted with joy when Maddock posted the update.
