Liverpool fans are quite keen on the club signing Lyon’s captain Nabil Fekir, the attacker who’s taking France by storm this year.
The 24-year-old has 16 goals and five assists in Ligue 1, with three more efforts in the cup competitions.
Fekir plays as a second striker, or no.10, but has been used in a deeper, creative role, like Coutinho was for Liverpool before he departed to Barcelona a few weeks back.
Liverpool picked up £142m for selling the Brazilian, but have so far not shown signs that we’ll reinvest it this January.
Fekir would represent an incredibly exciting signing, especially after seeing the hoards of Reds calling for a bid on Twitter.
He fits the bill in terms of an FSG signing, too. He’s about to enter his prime and plays for a club who sell. For Jurgen Klopp, Fekir is technically brilliant, rapid, can finish and play in a number of offensive positions.
Submit an offer, Reds – let’s see what happens!
Incredible! 💥 Should Liverpool be targeting Nabil Fekir as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho?

Look I'm not saying we need to sign one of Lemar or Fekir this month but when there are no attacking injuries and you're counting on Danny Ings to save you off the bench you need to sign one of Lemar or Fekir this month.

They should man up and just pay Oblaks release clause. Go sign Fekir and another winger/striker. Our midfield doesn’t score enough goals.

Fekir is the answer to all of Liverpool's problems
