Lots of Liverpool fans on Twitter have been sparked into a frenzy after one supporter tracked down a flight that was heading from Lyon to Blackpool on Sunday night.
Some of you may not know that Blackpool is where the Reds tend to carry out some of their transfers – Virgil van Dijk was allegedly there for a meeting with Jurgen Klopp in the summer before his winter arrival in 2018.

It has been reported that Lyon star Nabil Fekir may be back on the Champions League winners’ radar, after a transfer to Anfield collapsed last year.
Canal plus journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin claimed that the Merseysiders are keen to revisit a deal for the Frenchman, but would only be prepared to pay up to €30m (£26.7m) instead of the £53m agreed last summer.
So, the Liverpool fans have put two and two together and speculated that either Fekir, or another of Lyon’s stars such as Memphis Depay, Houssem Aouar or Tanguy Ndombele, may have been on that plane to Blackpool.
Let’s see what the Liverpool fans on Twitter have been saying about the situation…
What we know…
• Private Jet from Lyon to Blackpool
• Small plane from Liverpool to Blackpool (and back) 1 minute after the former landed
• French journalist claims he has news about Lyon later (as though it can’t be released yet)
Could all be coincidence of course

Too much to be a coincidence, the plane went back 2 hours later which could be with Fekir.
And Bilel Ghazi too..

Not to do with Liverpool at all. Any private plane that takes Liverpool staff has their destination blocked.

Fekir, Ndombele or Aouar and that will be boss

This is an odd private flight to take, really might be a signing

Imagine thinking we’re signing anyone

A plane from Blackpool to Liverpool? It’s like a 50 minute drive ?
