Nabil Fekir could make Lyon exit despite Liverpool transfer collapse

Nabil Fekir could make Lyon exit despite Liverpool transfer collapse

According to a report by Spanish publication Mundo Deportivo, Marco Asensio is the subject of interest from Liverpool, who are having to identify possible alternatives to Nabil Fekir.

Liverpool's failed move for Lyon ace Nabil Fekir would have been greeted with real frustration from the Anfield faithful, as they watched a move for one of the world's best attacking midfielders slip through the net.

Honors: All-Big 12 second team, he broke the Kansas single-season record for 3-pointers made with 115 in his senior season. Boston just came one victory away from reaching the NBA Finals when their two best players were hurt.


Whether Aulas is serious with his comments or merely attempting to drive up the price should Lyon once more consider selling later this summer remains to be seen.

A £53m deal was close to completion just before the start of the World Cup and Fekir even undertook an interview with the official Liverpool website ahead of his unveiling before the move sensationally collapsed at the final minute. He was very calm. "I hope he will stay, but if he absolutely wants to leave, we will try to find him the biggest club".

Messi has been awfully ineffective, nervous, and timid in the moments when Argentina need him most. They've been bad when they featured Messi and bad when making Messi's game secondary to the team.


The Lyon chief went on to say that they don't want to lose any of their key men and that they'll be looking to add new faces to their squad instead. "I had given him the green light", he said. We have the capacity to keep Fékir. The Reds have, thus far, been predominantly linked with a move for Nabil Fekir, although a few complications have arisen in their bid to sign the Frenchman of late.

Fekir is now in a state of flux, although the offer to stay at Lyon may be tempting.

While it's been said that Asensio has a staggering release clause of €700 million (£615 million), the sensational report claims that Real will consider Liverpool's offer. It's why, if a transfer can be revived, you'd expect Fekir to seize the chance of a fresh challenge elsewhere.
