Some Liverpool fans have been providing their thoughts on Nabil Fekir joining the Reds, with a report linking them with their former target.
Back in the summer of 2018, it looked as though Fekir was going to be the latest exciting addition to Liverpool’s squad, with Jurgen Klopp extremely close to snapping him up. A failed medical because of a knee issue saw the move for the Frenchman fall through, however, and it ended up being a transfer that got away.
Liverpool didn’t fare too badly without Fekir added to their squad, though, winning the Champions League in the season that followed before clinching Premier League glory a year later.
Now 27 and plying his trade at Real Betis – he moved there from Lyon in 2019 – the attacking midfielder has again been linked with a move to the Reds.
According to Todo Fichajes, Klopp is potentially still keen on bringing him to Anfield and he will likely cost less than before.
It is a move that is hard to see happening, though, considering Fekir turns 28 later this year and the Liverpool manager is known for signing younger players who he can turn into world-beaters.

These Reds supporters reacted to the news on Twitter.
“Why? His injury problems haven’t gone away“
“Not unless he found a new knee in Seville”
“Stop it!! Do not go there!“
“How many crocked players do we need?”
“Don’t do this to me again”
