Liverpool have wasted no time in making adjustments to their squad following the disappointment of losing the Champions League final.
Manager Jurgen Klopp has already boosted his midfield with the surprise signing of Fabinho from Monaco.
Naby Keita will also provide another option from the middle of the park following his switch from RB Leipzig, which was agreed a year ago.
It seems that wide areas are also on the agenda amid widespread reports linking the Anfield outfit to Lyon’s Nabil Fekir.
According to The Express, the Reds are edging close to securing the attacking midfielder’s signature, but it seems that a back-up could be on the cards.
Sky Sports cites L’Equipe as reporting that the Premier League club are keeping an eye on Bordeaux winger Malcom, who has previously been linked to Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
Last season, the 21-year-old, who is valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt, scored 12 goals and created eight assists for the French outfit.
It seems that the Brazilian could be a transfer option if the Fekir pursuit comes to nothing, but plenty of Liverpool fans want both players.
What’s wrong with Fekir and Malcom instead of just 1 of them???

We need both. Malcolm has pace and we need more pace in the team. If mane and Salah are injured we lack that pace upfront

Probably not gonna happen but he’d fit klopps mould for a winger but has the versatility to play central. Early traits of Adriano
