Lyon chairman reopens possibility of Nabil Fekir moving to Liverpool

While the FIFA World Cup has served to be a hindrance in a few transfers for Liverpool this summer, in Fekir's case, it might go on to be something that improves him as a player and should he get his move to Anfield, Jürgen Klopp will be reaping the rewards.

Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas suggests that he is still open to doing business with Liverpool for the services of Nabil Fekir.

Fekir has always been coveted by the Reds, but a £53m move was scuppered earlier this summer when the results of his medical gave Liverpool cause for concern about a recurring knee issue.

A transfer for the Lyon star was close to being agreed at the start of June but was said to have collapsed due to worries over his history with knee injuries.

"He is quite fantastic, focused on the World Cup and he still has his heart at Lyon".

Should the move finally go through and the saga draw to a close, Liverpool will be welcoming a World Cup victor into their ranks.

British Rescuer Considers Legal Action Against Elon Musk Over 'Pedo' Tweet
Vernon Unsworth, 63, said he was "astonished and very angry" at the attack, for which Musk offered no evidence or basis. The Tesla boss said he hadn't seen "this British expat guy" in the caves during the rescue, only Thai military divers.

Liverpool are seeking to restructure their previous deal for Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir.

The Lyon attacker's replies were dominated by Liverpool supporters, pleading with him to wrap up a move to Anfield.

"I'm very happy to be here".

The playmaker was used sparingly in the tournament by manager Didier Deschamps, often brought into play in the latter stages to provide a creative spark for Les Bleus. A few years ago I wanted to come too but it didn't happen. Regardless, Real are hoping Croatia's run to the final will be enough to spark a huge bid.

"I want to improve myself too, I want to be with the best and I want to win titles".
