What does the future hold for Nabil Fekir at Lyon?

Liverpool remain in a promising position in the race for the Premier League title, with another quality signing possibly helping them seek world domination in the future. 

The Reds will be focused on ensuring defensive solidity from here on in until the end of the season after a slight scare against Crystal Palace last time out, which resulted in a 4-3 victory at Anfield.

Of course, one position that’s currently vacant at Liverpool is the attacking midfield role as the Reds just haven’t been able to find a replacement for Philippe Coutinho.

Interestingly, Jurgen Klopp came close to securing the services of Nabil Fekir back in the summer of last year, as it was reported (as per the Guardian) that the Frenchman was set to move to Anfield, but the deal ended up collapsing as his current club Lyon ended negotiations.

It’s safe to say that many supporters would still be open to signing the attacking midfielder as he’s developed into one of the hottest topics in world football. And, the Reds may have the perfect chance to go back in for him, as according to Le Progres (via Sky Sports), Fekir is still interested in a move to Liverpool.

Indeed, FSG have secured a number of sensational signings for Klopp during his time at the club, including the likes of Mohamed Salah, Virgil Van Dijk and Sadio Mane, but this could prove to be one of their best yet if the Reds decide pursue a deal for the World Cup winner.

Fekir, who is valued at £63 million (by Transfermarkt), has established himself as one of the most dangerous attackers in world football over the past couple of seasons, and he even showed glimpses of brilliance at the World Cup. The attacker has managed to find the back of the net nine times this season and has five assists to his name, so his creativity levels and ability to score on a consistent basis would soon have fans forgetting about Coutinho.

Klopp has a reputation for turning good players into world stars, but Fekir is already verging on that top-tier level.
