He’s enjoying his most stellar run in the final third, scoring 22 goals, providing seven assists in 38 appearances. Just five players racked up more in the league.
Liverpool fans have gone wild with reports linking Olympique Lyonnais skipper Nabil Fekir to the club this summer.
According to report from Liverpool Echo, negotiations is yet to begun between the two clubs probably due to Liverpool’s keen attentions towards the Champions League final.
Fekir joining the Reds could become a match made in heaven. He is one of Ligue 1’s shining stars this season. The midfielder turned striker has been blazing hot, firing on all positions this season.
With 84 strikes, they flaunt the second best attack in the French top-tier behind Paris Saint-Germain (108). Fekir has single-handedly contributed almost one-third of those.
Goals haven’t been a problem for Jurgen Klopp’s team, though. In Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane, they flaunt arguably Europe’s deadliest front-three. However, Fekir brings something different to the table.
With Salah and Mane operating from the flanks, Firmino up top, Fekir could slot behind the Brazilian. Similar to Philippe Coutinho’s former role taking up by Alex Oxlade Chamberlain.
Here is a tweet from Fekir and Liverpool fan reactions:
