Loads of Liverpool fans have been giving their verdict on who they should target in January, and they’re still absolutely desperate to sign Nabil Fekir.
Liverpool’s pursuit of Lyon captain Fekir was one of the more bizarre transfer stories of the summer, as the Reds looked to have the deal all wrapped up.
Fans were delighted that the club wasn’t wasting any time finding a replacement for the creativity and goals from midfield of Philippe Coutinho, but the deal fell through at the last minute.
Nobody to this day knows exactly why the deal collapsed, or even which club pulled out, but there are suspicions that it has to do with Fekir’s knee problems.
The Frenchman required surgery to repair knee ligament damage in 2015, but has not had any major injuries since recovering from that problem.
Liverpool have run out of steam in midfield in the last few weeks, struggling to create hardly any chances for their electric front three.
Fans want Klopp to move for a creative midfielder in January, and they’re still holding out hope that a deal for Fekir can be done.
The Reds had a similar situation with Virgil van Dijk, as they were forced to publicly apologise to Southampton before signing the Dutchman six months later.
The 25 year-old ran the show and scored a sensational goal when Lyon upset Manchester City last month, and you can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below…
I refuse to accept that we’ve moved on from Nabil Fekir.

Same or we’d have been all over any Paqueta deal. Very odd that’s he’s seemingly chosen a non CL club.
The one thing we lack is goals from midfield. Adding Fekir, Ziyech, Paqueta or even Ramsey would solve that.
