Liverpool told Lyon open to selling Nabil Fekir – L’Equipe

Liverpool, Lyon & Nabil Fekir

One of the big articles in Monday’s L’Equipe is an update on Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir.

As everyone will no doubt know, Fekir has been linked with a possible move to Liverpool all summer.

Indeed, prior to the World Cup, it’s believed that Liverpool agreed a five year deal with Fekir.

However Lyon have since managed to hold onto their World Cup winner. And on Monday, Fekir will return to Lyon for the first time since playing in Russia this summer.

Lyon will sell Nabil Fekir – L’Equipe

In an obvious tease in Liverpool’s direction, L’Equipe announce that Lyon have not closed the door on selling Fekir this summer.

Does that mean he’ll join Liverpool? That’s unlikely at this stage, as Premier League clubs must complete their transfer dealings by 5pm on Thursday.

L’Equipe believe Lyon would need to receive an offer too good to refuse to sell Fekir at this stage of the summer.

Putting a figure on that, an offer of 60 million pounds could convince Lyon to sell.

But Liverpool fans have been warned that such an offer is unlikely to arrive from Anfield.

Liverpool’s summer business

Regardless if Liverpool miss out on Fekir, the Reds have still had a successful summer in the transfer market.

At the back, Alisson has become the world’s most expensive keeper following his £67 million move to Anfield from Roma.

The arrivals of Fabinho and Naby Keita have boosted Jurgen Klopp’s midfield options.

While further forward Xherdan Shaqiri has provided another attacking avenue for Klopp.
