Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react to the news of the club’s supposed interest in Lyon pair Maxwel Cornet and Bertrand Traore.
The Reds reportedly sent scouts to watch the duo perform in the 3-0 win over Marseille earlier in the season, as they look to add some reinforcements to the attack with Daniel Sturridge set to leave after the Champions League final.
Luis Suarez certainly had no qualms about celebrating against his former employers in the video below…
It was the Ivory Coast forward Cornet that fared better in front of the watching Liverpool scouts, however, hitting two goals against Marseille in that aforementioned 3-0 win.
Whilst both are good players and should be targets that excite Liverpool fans, some supporters are more interested as to why the likes of Nabil Fekir, Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar weren’t on the radar instead.
Let’s take a look at what the Liverpool supporters have been saying…

Smoke screen for Depay

Going to Lyon and ignoring Aouar and Fekir to watch Depay would be bad enough but to go watch Cornet and Traore, JEEZ. Hopefully there’s absolutely no truth in that.

Jesus Christ, we are being linked with the whole Lyon team!! Lyon aren’t exactly pulling up trees yet all their players seem to come with extortionate price tags. Surely there are only a couple of gems in this side?

I like both of these but going by reports both would be too expensive.
