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.

Nabil Fekir would be a very good signing for Liverpool. Let's see what happens.

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

Liverpool target’s agent claims player is happy at current club
Ousmane Dembele’s agent, Moussa Sissoko, has claimed that the Frenchman is not looking to leave Barcelona.
“The club is happy with Ousmane.
“Dembele doesn’t care about criticisms. Some of them are unfair. He is 20, he plays for Barcelona and he had a great start to the season.”
The agent further claimed that the player has to do better and the Frenchman was sick for a while which led to a few controversies.
Sissoko added that the national team manager and Barcelona’s Eric Abidal were happy with the attacker.
“Ousmane keeps working for a big club, the manager likes him and the same goes for Deschamps. I know Abidal is also very happy with how he is training and working for his club.”
Dembele seems to be doing better when compared to the same time frame last season. The Frenchman has scored four goals from 11 La Liga games and has one from two Champions League ties.
The former Borussia Dortmund player would be an amazing signing for the Reds, but we would have to pay a huge amount to sign him from Barcelona.
The 21-year-old would certainly improve our attack, and it will be interesting to see what our activity would be in the winter window.
“It is not easy but I’m trying” – Liverpool star opens up about huge price tag and how he wants to improve
The former AS Roma star has had a brilliant start to his Premier League campaign and has conceded just five goals from 12 games.
Speaking ahead of Brazil’s friendly against Uruguay, the Independent quoted Alisson saying:
“I came here for a high price and some people expect to me to be perfect – it is not easy but I’m trying.”
Alisson added he is working to be perfect in between the sticks and wants to get better with each game.
“I am really, really happy with my move to the Premier League. I’m working really hard to help Liverpool to achieve their goals and also for the Brazil national team.”
Alisson praised our defence for giving him an easy time at the back and claimed that he has to concentrate a lot in games.
“One thing that is important here is the concentration and focus. They are asking me to be really mentally strong.
“My team have a really great defence so it is not often the ball comes near my net.”
The Brazilian has been an excellent signing for the Reds this season, but there have been a few instances where he could have done better.
The goal against Leicester City and one against Arsenal could have been avoided, and hopefully, he will get better in the coming months.

Liverpool summer signing Fabinho is still getting into the groove of things at Anfield. The former Monaco midfielder was slowly integrated into the team by Jurgen Klopp, and the Brazilian has a couple of quality outings under his belt.
Fabinho is a proper defensive midfielder but the Brazilian knows how to pick a pass too. Despite not starting regularly for the Reds, the 25-year-old is a constant in the national side and recently shared a picture of him training with the team during the international break.
The 25-year-old was seen alongside Everton midfielder Richarlison and a few others as they went through the paces.

Fabinho’s introduction has seen Klopp devise a 4-2-3-1 formation where the 25-year-old plays as one of our two midfielders.
The Brazilian has looked comfortable in that position but has to work on his reactions in the Premier League.
The former Monaco man was excellent in our 4-0 win over Red Star Belgrade a few weeks ago but wasn’t great in the 1-1 draw against Arsenal.
He was much better in the 2-0 win over Fulham but we are yet to see the best of the midfielder. With just a third of the campaign done, Fabinho has time on his side to get even better this season.
It will be interesting to see how we deal with the packed festive schedule, but there is no doubt Fabinho will play a crucial role for Liverpool in the rest of the season.
