There is a line after Fekir

Nabil Fekir has been piquing interest in the European top clubs for two years. Rumor have appeared ahead of the transfer window about playmaker’s transfer and one of the claimants are Chelsea, Liverpool and other top teams.

Originally, the English newspaper The Sun published the news that said that Arsenal are going to purchase Fekir. The Gunners intended to pay 50 million Euros for the Frenchman, whose contract is due to expire in 2020. However, the attempts to purchase the Lyon player did not go further than the rumors.

Arsenal have a good selection of players on Fekir’s position. Mesut Ozil and Henrikh Mkhitaryan will share one spot on the pitch with him in case of the Frenchman’s purchase. Whereas the nearest resignation of Arsene Wenger should be taken into account. It is not a fact, that the New Arsenal manager will be positive about the arrival of Nabil to Emirates, even with persuasion of the former partner Lacazette.

A few days ago, the French publisher L`equipe announced that Fekir has verbal agreement with Lyon’s management, according to which the club will let him go for 60 million Euros. The main claimants for the footballer will be Chelsea and Atletico. The Mattressers want to secure themselves in case Antoine Griezmann’s departure and Chelsea are going to replace Eden Hazard with Fekir. The Belgian piques interest in Real and therefore will soon get a promotion.

However, journalists predict Fekir’s transfer to Liverpool as the most probable outcome. The Reds advanced to the Champions League final and occupy a place in the EPL’s top four. This influenced the club’s prestige and thanks to that players are easier to be lured to Anfield. In Summer, Naby Keita will join the Merseyside team and Klopp needs Fekir to replace Coutinho.

According to Get French Football, the Scousers have already agreed the terms of the halfback’s deal for 70 million Euros with a contract of five years. The conditional contract also has a clause about Fekir’s brother Yassin’s transfer, who will play for the team’s reserves. Nevertheless, the club’s president Aulas soon dismissed the rumors and claimed:

“We did not have any contacts with Liverpool. Fekir is here. We hope that we will keep him, so that he would play for us in the Champions League next season”.

Jean-Michel Aulas is a friend of the Liverpool legend Gerard Houllier, who could play a decisive role in this transfer. The footballer is capable of becoming the first spring, which will shoot during Liverpool’s counterattacks as well as take on the game in matches with defensive teams. In the symbiosis with a purchase of another  quality defender, the Reds will stop loosing points with underdogs and will seriously become contenders for the championship.
