Liverpool are reportedly looking to go back in for Lyon’s Nabil Fekir this summer, according to reports in France.

As per French outlet Le Progres, the Reds could try their luck once again this year after missing out on a deal to sign Fekir during the previous summer window.

The report claims that initial contact about a deal has been made, but the club are not willing to meet the €50 million price tag.

Fekir’s failed move to Anfield was one of the stories of the summer last year, with the Frenchman coming ever so close to joining the Reds.

To this day, it has not been confirmed as to why the move fell through after reports emerged on social media that appeared to show the player in Liverpool colours, taking part in official interviews for the club’s TV channel.

Fekir has reportedly been told he will be able to leave the Ligue 1 side this summer but Jean Michel Aulas has proven to be a tricky negotiator in the past, meaning any deal will be difficult for the Reds to pull off.

Wolves continue their interest in Rafa Camacho.
Wolves remain interested in a summer move for Liverpool youngster Rafa Camacho, according to the Express & Star. The Portuguese has been linked with a switch to Molineux in the past, potentially joining up with a number of his compatriots in the process. Camacho will leave Liverpool in the coming weeks, having failed to agree a new deal at the club. The 18-year-old is valued at around £10million, having impressed for the Reds’ U23s and appeared twice for the first team in 2018/19. Ironically, his Liverpool debut came at Wolves in the FA Cup third round back in January, on a night when Nuno Espirito Santo’s men won 2-1.
