Liverpool are constantly linked with French international Nabil Fekir and it will not come as any surprise if the Lyon star ends up moving to Anfield.
Yesterday, we covered a report (L’Equipe) claiming that the Reds will begin talks with the Ligue 1 club to secure the signature of the 24-year-old attacking midfielder.
More recently, Mirror Sport have claimed that the Reds are trying to meet with Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas to thrash out exactly the asking price, which is around 50 million pounds (€57.3million), to lure the Les Bleus star.

Today, the British source came up with another report claiming that the Merseysiders are keen to push through a £50million deal for Fekir before the start of the World Cup next month.
Mirror Sport have further mentioned that Sporting Director Michael Edwards has already made progress and will try harder to reach an agreement with the French side.
Jurgen Klopp sold Philippe Coutinho in the winter transfer window and as yet, the German boss has not replaced the Brazilian playmaker.
Like Coutinho, Fekir can also be deployed in the midfield and in the offense. Last season, he regularly scored and created goals to help Lyon qualify for the next season’s UEFA Champions League. We can expect the Ligue 1 star to partner the likes of Salah and Mane in Liverpool’s attacking midfield if he does end up signing for the Anfield club.
