Liverpool are close to signing €70m-rated World Cup winning attacker

Liverpool are close to signing Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir and set to battle with Chelsea, Real Madrid, Man City and Arsenal for the player. Jurgen Klopp wants to strengthen the midfield, and his primary target is France international who had a fantastic campaign and proved his greatness one more time.

Adam Lallana is in terrible form, Xherdan Shaqiri linked with several clubs, and they need back-up. German manager will do everything to add him this June, but it will be difficult as Blues, Los Blancos, Citizens and Gunners also planning to make a bid during the transfer window.

The 25-year-old playmaker spent his years of youth with the French club and amazed everyone with his abilities. He is one of the best attackers in Europe and a captain of the club. In this season, French midfielder played 40 matches, scored 12 goals and made nine assists in all competition.

It is an impressive consequence, and he can do much more with high-class teammates. Nabil has contracted with the Les Gones until 2020, and his release clause is around €70m. His price could increase during this summer and become much more.

Fekir regularly plays in the national team and also helped them to win the gold medals in the 2018 Mundial which is already a big success for the footballer. Merseyside club tried to sign him last summer, but the deal failed. Reds heavily linked with PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot, RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, Bayer Leverkusen attacker Kai Havertz, Fiorentina winger Federico Chiesa and Ajax Ajax superstar David Neres.
