Nabil Fekir & Liverpool
L’Equipe have an update on Liverpool’s pursuit of Lyon’s Nabil Fekir on Tuesday.
The French daily have dedicated an article in their paper to considering possible summer transfer moves for the World Cup winners.
With regards to Fekir, it’s believed that Lyon have placed a deadline on a possible Liverpool deal.
Lyon want Fekir’s future to be decided by the end of the month. Including today, that leaves Liverpool with 14 days to complete the transfer.
Do Liverpool still want Fekir? Last week the Reds completed the signing of Xherdan Shaqiri from Stoke City for 13 million pounds.
Nevertheless, most still believe Fekir is a target for Jurgen Klopp as the German hopes to win his first trophy since moving to Anfield.
Lyon want Nabil Fékir’s future sorted out by the end of this month, Liverpool returning for him “is not entirely out of the question,” according to tomorrow’s L’Équipe.

Fekir ‘smiles’ as a fan shout ‘Liverpool’
A video went viral on Monday as France left Russia.
France beat Croatia 4-2 in the final.
As Fekir was walking through the airport to board the plane home, the Lyon playmaker was showered with cries of “Liverpool”.
Fekir could have ignored the Liverpool calls, kept his head down, and got on with his day.
However the Lyon star reportedly “smiled” as he visibly turned his head as the fans shouted “Liverpool”.
So does this mean Fekir has confirmed he’s Anfield bound? No, of course not. Nevertheless, it’s easy to understand why Liverpool fans are sharing this video in their numbers.
