Reported Liverpool target Nabil Fekir spoke to reporters about his future, and responded when asked whether a move from Lyon to Anfield is on the cards this summer, as quoted by the Mirror.
According to the British tabloid, the Reds have identified the 24-year-old as the perfect replacement for the recently departed Philippe Coutinho, with a potential £60 million deal being mooted.
The France international has been in quite simply sensational form for Lyon this season, racking up an impressive 22 goals and seven assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.
Fekir is most effective when operating in the number 10 position, but he can play anywhere along the front-line, and he would certainly add real competition for the likes of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah.
The 24-year-old spoke to reporters, and responded when asked whether he could be plying his trade on Merseyside next season, as quoted by the Mirror:
"I heard these rumours. For now, I am in Lyon. There are still two games left and we are preparing for them in the best way possible. At the end of the season, we will see."
Whilst £60 million seems like a lot of money on the face of it, in today's day and age it would actually represent decent value, and if Klopp does in fact manage to bring Fekir to Anfield, it could turn out to be a signing of real significance for Liverpool.
