Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has given Liverpool renewed hope in their efforts to sign Nabil Fekir after conceding the collapsed deal could be revived this summer.cheap nfl nike jerseys from china
The Lyon figurehead spoke to Le 10 Sport (h/t James Walters of the Daily Express) and said there’s a chance the Reds could still get their hands on the player after an agreed deal was called off in June:
“It seems to me that Liverpool could come back in.cheap nfl jerseys china nike
“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. He is focused on the World Cup, and he still has his heart in Lyon. Nabil is much closer to Lyon today than he was when we talked to Liverpool.
A pre-existing knee injury revealed during his Liverpool medical was at the root of the £53 million deal falling apart, with Aulas having fought hard for Fekir’s Lyon future prior to that.
The club president now seems more open to the move materialising, nike nfl jerseys cheap china and the Mirror’s David Maddock reported they already have a replacement in mind:
Negotiations are sure to escalate after Fekir returns from international duty with France at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, where he’s hoping to have an impact in Sunday’s final against Croatia.
Discovery of the knee injury means Liverpool might be less inclined to invest so prominently in Fekir, which is why Maddock’s report asserted they would now seek to pay any transfer fee over the course of a five-year contract.china nike nfl jerseys cheap
Liverpool have already spent in excess of £100 million to sign Naby Keita, Fabinho and Shaqiri this summer, but the addition of Fekir could send their expenditure spiralling once more.
