Liverpool came agonisingly cam on the brink to sign Lyon skipper Nabil Fekir earlier last summer for £53m, however, ultimately pulled out of the deal over fitness concerns as Frenchman suffered from a knee injury.
The 25-year-old star was considered to be the best available like to replace Philippe Coutinho who has made the £142million switch to Barcelona in January.
Anfield physios, however, informed that the team signing the 25-year-old Frenchman was a risk given his history with serious knee injuries and the Merseyside Reds pulled out of the deal at the eleventh hour.
The Reds supporters still hold faint hopes that world-cup winning midfielder can make the switch to Anfield and he has spoken about his future, saying: “Rumours are a part of the transfer window. It’s normal.
“I feel good here. My goal is to win a title with Lyon. Either way, I give my all.”
Liverpool fans would still love to see the 25-year-old midfielder signed for the Reds. However, the decision to not sign him is a wise one that could have proved costly in the long-term. However, the Merseyside Reds must now prioritise signing a creative midfielder this summer elsewhere.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are one of the top teams in Europe interested PSG Eindhoven winger Steven Bergwijn, according to De Telegraaf reports.
The Dutch giants forward is one of most prized assets in the Eredivisie, with an offer of over £30million is expected to be his price tag.
The 21-year-old winger has found back of the net 11 times and provided 12 assists this campaign, outlining his attacking input.
