Lyon have agreed on terms with Liverpool regarding a summer transfer for playmaker Nabil Fekir, according to RMC Sport (h/t Sky Sports).
Fekir is an immensely skilled creative midfielder, who is versatile and blessed with abundance pace. He can trouble the opponent defenders like nobody’s business and he is also adept at making things work in the final third.
As per Squawka, Fekir has created 52 chances in 26 Ligue 1 appearances this term and a player like him could go a long way in boosting Liverpool’s chances next campaign.
We have a great chance of winning the UEFA Champions League this season but regardless of how things turn out, it is crucial that we build a strong team this summer.
Since Philippe Coutinho’s departure, we have lacked the services of an out-and-out creative playmaker and Fekir seems like a worthy replacement.
After the report from Sky Sports, there has been a lot of talk about this rumour and our supporters on Twitter seemed to be quite pleased.
Here are some of the best reactions from Liverpool fans:
Liverpool need to make it their business to go after the signing of Nabil Fékir in the summer. The picture perfect replacement for Coutinho

Just imagine signing Nabil Fékir and Ousmane Dembélé in the same window with Naby Keita on the way as well. That would be scary and a massive window for Liverpool.
I'll live in hope. 🤞🏾🤞🏾🤞🏾

Nabil Fekir would inject even more creativity into this Liverpool side. Would allow Firmino, Salah and Mane to get even more chances at goals.

Liverpool signed Nabil Fekir (if this true), another golden world class addition to Liverpool squad. Next year in EPL Liverpool is the team to watch.

A midfield of Naby Keita and Nabil Fekir. Imagine the greatness. Really like both players, tbh. Now Liverpool need a proper DM to challenge for PL
