Liverpool transfer rumours: Nabil Fekir, Christian Pulisic and Gianluigi Donnarumma

Lyon had previously said only a "very, very rich" club could hope to secure Fekir's signature this summer, but their stance has now softened. The player has made such an enormous impact at Lyon that he has also been entrusted with the club captaincy. In 40 games across all competitions, the Frenchman went on to grab 23 goals and 8 assists, and it is hardly surprising that he is attracting interest from a number of top European clubs.

Sportsmail reported on Thursday that the Reds had stepped up their efforts to sign Fekir as they look to capitalise on their thrilling run to the Champions League final.

The 24-year-old scored 21 times for Lyon this season and could fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho's January transfer window departure to Barcelona.

Indeed, Klopp has failed to replace the Brazilian since his big money move and Fekir, with his abilities in the final third, is close to a like-for-like replacement.

John Terry wants freaky clause in new Aston Villa contract
Terry is a Chelsea legend and he called time on a 19-year Stamford Bridge career last summer, signing a one-year deal with Villa. We are going to follow our style and be confident we will cross the line.

Liverpool FC finished fourth in the Premier League this term.

For a couple of weeks, reports in France have been claiming that the French global is likely to move to Anfield, but there were no stories from Liverpool/British based journalists to back those claims up.

Fekir has done little to dampen speculation and added more fuel to the flames on Friday when he openly admitted he would be interested in joining Liverpool.

Even at the start of this week, Liverpool were at pains to stress there had been no contact with Lyon for the 24-year-old - a point backed up by the fact Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas indicated that Fekir wanted to remain in France.
