Nabil Fekir dominated Liverpool’s transfer window, and the Lyon playmaker is still the topic of conversation on Twitter.
The Merseyside outfit were widely expected to add the Frenchman to Jurgen Klopp’s squad.
However, in the final hour, the deal collapsed due to the Reds’ concerns over a previous knee injury.
In the end, Fekir, who has scored 57 goals for his club, did not leave the Ligue 1 outfit, but that has not stopped some Liverpool fans from speculating.
Many of the Reds’ following wanted the midfielder to become part of Klopp’s revolution at Anfield.
It was suggested numerous times on social media that Fekir would be the ideal replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who left Liverpool to join Barcelona in January.
It is unclear whether Liverpool will revive their interest in Fekir when the transfer window reopens in January, but a recent photoshoot has got some supporters convinced.
Lyon recently posted a video of Fekir filming some shots for the Ligue 1 season ahead, and he does not look the most thrilled.

Maybe! Depends on how the season is going and if Lyon lower their demands.

If Lyon boss is any true to his preachings about how “he always want the best for his players” he should ease up a little in Jan. I mean it’s almost the same contract with some extra guarantees if the knee problems surfaced.
It’s not like they cut price to half or something.

I hope we get him in Jan, Ox is out for ages and Lallana not getting any younger (better). Hence having him come in makes sense depending on how he does.
