Door opened for Liverpool as Nabil Fekir transfer saga is revived

Door opened for Liverpool as Nabil Fekir transfer saga is revived

The France global was close to joining the Reds in a £60m deal last month, only for the move to break down as the Reds reportedly wanted to renegotiate his fee.

Fekir could be involved for France this afternoon as they take on Croatia in the World Cup final.

While neither club has revealed what went so badly wrong in the end, there has been many a rumour that it had something to do with the results of Fekir's medical.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth believes Liverpool FC could still sign Fekir despite the deal falling through earlier in the summer transfer window.

"It seems to me that Liverpool could come back in".

Liverpool have already signed Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, with a move for Fekir potentially one of the final pieces in the jigsaw being assembled by boss Jurgen Klopp. "That's what I've read in the press, but I've not been told anything".

'His transfer failed in June, but he hasn't been affected by it.

Fekir is now on duty at the World Cup after France reached the final where les Bleus will face Croatia.

Should the move finally go through and the saga draw to a close, Liverpool will be welcoming a World Cup victor into their ranks.

Fekir's future is very much unclear at this given point but with a summer move looking likely for the 24-year-old, a switch to Anfield still looks very much on the cards.

The Fekir saga looks set to keep running with Manchester United and Real Madrid also keen.

It certainly seems that Fekir wants out of the French club, and having come within a signature of joining Jurgen Klopp's in June, Fekir could push to reignite the move after he has completed his duties in Russian Federation.
