Liverpool Target Odds On To Stay In France As Transfer Saga Continues

Liverpool have continued to monitor Fekir's situation and the Mirror claim they remain interested in taking the playmaker to Anfield as Jurgen Klopp looks to finally replace Philippe Coutinho following his January move to Barcelona.

Chelsea though are showing serious interest in landing Fekir.

"Dejan didn't train so far", Klopp said.

But Chelsea, despite not having made an official offer, are hoping to sign the player before the transfer window shuts this week.

Reliable French news outlet L'Equipe reports that Lyon will sell Nabil Fekir this summer at the right price and it remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool will meet their valuation of the playmaker.

It's winning that matters but this Liverpool squad might have learned a thing or two from their cup runs and if that doesn't make you a better team, I don't know what will.

Police seek teen who robbed a boy's lemonade stand
A 9-year-old North Carolina boy who was running a lemonade stand was robbed at gunpoint on August 5, officials said. Authorities believe the teen left a bicycle and walked from there to the lemonade stand .

Cape Town - With the 9 August (Thursday) the deadline for the transfer window fast approaching, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has hinted that the Reds have not yet finalised their business.

How Liverpool might end up regretting not going back in for Fekir. I am very good here. I didn't need the final proof in and around the World Cup or in last season. He is back Monday so probably won't play Tuesday and Sunday will be very hard as well.

"He was for a long time in his youth an outfield player [and] he must have been a very good outfield player as well because he's really good in that".

"He's quite a good footballer - probably as good as the goalie he is", Klopp told reporters after the match.

The Frenchman would be a sensational signing for Liverpool, but it is doubtful that the Merseyside outfit will be able to splash out another £60 million.
