Liverpool’s move for Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir might well be back on.
The Reds were strongly linked with a move for Fekir during last summer’s transfer window, but the Frenchman ultimately remained with Lyon.
There is once again speculation surrounding Fekir’s future, with the 25-year-old handing in a transfer request, according to various reports.
There has been no confirmation of this as things stand, but there is rarely smoke without fire and the Frenchman might well be available this month.
As expected, the Liverpool fans have been on social media reacting to the news.
Fekir – valued at £63m by Transfermarkt – scored 23 times in all competitions for Lyon last season and was a part of the France squad that landed the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
There is no question that the attacker is a talent, but for now, reports of a transfer request being handed in are pure speculation.
That has not stopped the Liverpool fans reacting to the rumour, however, and a selection of their views on Twitter can be seen below:
