Champions League winners Liverpool are looking to resurrect a move for Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir, according to reports.

Fekir to Liverpool was one of the enduring stories of last summer’s transfer window. After weeks of rumours, Lyon finally pulled the plug on a £53 million deal.

However, after another impressive season – Fekir scored 12 and provided 9 assists in all competitions – Reds manager Jurgen Klopp is renewing his interest in signing the player.

Klopp is looking to strengthen his squad as he looks to de-throne Manchester City as Premier League Champions next season. Midfield has been identified as an area that needs more depth.

However, Liverpool do not want to pay £53 million for him. They may not have to either, as it is believed Lyon will listen to lower offers. A friendly between the sides this summer may also help to sweeten a deal. French outlet Le Progress has claimed a deal is close.
