According to the Liverpool Echo, Liverpool will not be returning for Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir in this summer’s transfer window.
The Reds were strongly linked with a move for the France international ahead of the 2018 World Cup. However, it all fell through at the final moment.
Concerns over a previous knee injury are believed to have caused Liverpool to pull the plug despite their interest in the versatile attacker.
Fekir is widely expected to leave Lyon in this summer’s transfer window.
However, according to the Liverpool Echo, Jurgen Klopp’s side will not be making a move for the 25-year-old ahead of the 2019-20 campaign.
A number of the Merseyside club’s fans have been on social media reacting to the update and many have differing views on the situation.
“The worst we’ve played all season” but “our most straightforward final since 2003” – a Liverpool fan reflects on the UCL final in the video below…
Indeed, whilst some are not concerned over a lack of midfield creativity, others feel that it is still an area in need of strengthening.

The midfield is the weakest area ?

Are you joking! That area is the puzzle that will win us the premier league and trophies. if will have a creative midfielder we will attack our opponents in 3 ways that will give 3 points where is suppose to be 1or 0. We need this!

But surely he’s worth the risk for £15M

Klopp is the best manager around but bizarre that he can’t see we lack goals and creativity from midfield. Midfield was and is our weakest area by far. Weird.

Tbf we’ve got about 426 midfielders, no full back or attacking backup. This is common sense.

If Klopp can’t see we need a attacking mid he’s blind, still not replaced Coutinho
