Liverpool make Nabil Fekir contract offer as Klopp reignites interest | Football | Sport

The Frenchman was on the cusp of completing a £53million switch to Anfield last summer before the deal collapsed at the final hour.

Liverpool had agreed terms with Lyon and the player who even underwent a medical in Paris before the World Cup.

It’s believed he even conducted an interview with LFC TV before the club decided to pull out of the deal in the most dramatic transfer saga of last summer.

The Reds have never revealed the reason behind their decision to walk away from proceedings while there has been talk that their doctors had doubts over his knee ligament reconstruction.

Now according to La Gazzetta dello Sport’s Nicolo Schira, Jurgen Klopp has revived his interest in the attacking midfielder.

“Jurgen #Klopp has reignited his interest in Nabil #Fekir and he would buy him from #OlympiqueLyon,” he tweeted.

“Aulas wants for his player €50M at least. #Liverpool have offered to Fekir a contract until 2024 by €4M at year.”

Liverpool are yet to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho after he joined Barcelona, meaning they could add a No 10 to their ranks in the upcoming window.

The 25-year-old has just one year remaining on his contract which could influence Lyon’s stance over his sale.

President Jean-Michel Aulas is no pushover when it comes to negotiations but given that he’s failed to convince Fekir to sign a contract extension, his hand may be forced.

Lyon know that if they are able to recoup some funds this summer it will spare their blushes of losing him on a free in 12 months time.

Fekir said that he’s open to a new challenge during an interview at the end of March.

“Liverpool? It’s part of a player’s career, but it makes you stronger and you have to move forward,” he told Telefoot.

“I really don’t know what I will do [next summer].

“But as I said I feel good in Lyon, the president trusts me, that’s good.

“You will see [if I extend my contract].”
