Liverpool fans get excited as Nabil Fekir unveiling video emerges

The saga of Nabil Fekir nearly signing for Liverpool continues…

It does seem a long time ago now, but during the summer transfer window there were quite a few days where Nabil Fekir’s unveiling as a Liverpool player was imminent.

In the end, Fekir did remain at Lyon with controversy over the reasons for the failed move. Some have suggested it was down to a chronic knee problem. Others have claimed Liverpool and Lyon could not agree a fee.

What is certain though is that Fekir came so close to signing for Liverpool that he underwent a medical and had even produced his first interview for the club’s in-house TV channel.

In recent hours, Liverpool fans have got rather excited about Fekir again as some of their eagle eyed fans have done some serious digging on the world wide web.

Liverpool fans get excited about Nabil Fekir again

Incredibly, there has been speculation amongst Liverpool fans that the fact the video hasn’t been deleted means the Merseyside giants will try to sign Fekir again in January.

Despite their fine start to the campaign, some Liverpool supporters feel they do not have enough creativity in midfield.

Fekir remains a key player for Lyon and as well as winning the World Cup this past summer, also scored for his club in a 2-1 win at Manchester City.
