Man City enter race for Liverpool target Fekir

Man City enter race for Liverpool target Fekir Manchester City have reportedly joined the race for long-term Liverpool target Nabil Fekir, ahead of the Frenchman’s inevitable Lyon departure this summer. The World Cup winner was close to moving to Anfield last summer in a deal worth more than £50million, but the transfer fell through at the final hurdle due to the results of a medical. Fekir has confirmed he intends to leave Lyon this summer though, which has seemingly placed some of Europe’s top clubs on red alert. According to Express Sport, Man City have asked the Ligue 1 club to be kept updated about Fekir’s situation over the transfer window.

Lyon have urged Nabil Fekir to make a decision over his future before the winter break. Reports suggest Fekir could move on at the end of the season with Bayern Munich and Chelsea Le Progres reports Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is planning a meeting with Fekir to discuss his future .

This summer, Liverpool are ready to sign a ‘Coutinho replacement’ and Lyon’s Nabil Fekir is the most likely target, with reports from France indicating that the Anfield outfit Le Parisien also point out that Fekir and his entourage are not entirely certain and this is another reason for a hold up in the transfer.

Liverpool are not planning any future moves for Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir, according to reports from the Independent.

This follows reports from France that claim the Reds are still interested in a move for Fekir, a year after almost bringing him to Anfield.

Last Summer the Reds almost agreed on a deal to bring Fekir to Anfield, agreeing a £53 million fee for the midfielder and even taking pictures of him in a Liverpool shirt.

However, after his medical, the club pulled out of the deal over concerns about Fekir’s previous injury history with his knee.

The club are reportedly still not interested in Fekir, with Liverpool’s stance on any deal not changing since they killed the deal last Summer.

Fekir is entering the last 12 months of his deal at Lyon, and could yet still move away from the French side.

However, it won’t be to Liverpool, who are firmly out of the race to sign the 25-year-old.

However, according to Get French Football News, Milan look set to rival the Reds for the midfielder with the Serie A giants having made an approach to Lyon over the availability of Fekir this summer.
