Liverpool should finally sign £50million+ playmaker

Fekir World Cup Trophy

After winning the opening seven games in all competitions, Liverpool have only managed to win three of the last nine games.

In my opinion, Jurgen Klopp must spend to strengthen his team in January by finally replacing Philippe Coutinho, who was sold to Barcelona in the last winter transfer window. The five time European Champions clearly miss a playmaker like him.

Liverpool were heavily interested in signing French international Nabil Fekir from Lyon in the summer transfer window but the player eventually stayed with the Ligue 1 club. Now, the Reds should splash the cash to finally sign him in the January transfer window.

The Reds lost their last CL contest vs Red Star Belgrade and in the recent weeks, it has become evident that Klopp needs a player, who can dribble well and operate the ball under pressure to rip defenses apart.

Fekir has got all the qualities mentioned above and he has all the traits to replace Coutinho at Anfield. He is even faster than the little Brazilian.

In the current campaign, the 25-year-old World Cup winning star has so far started 9 games in all competitions and directly contributed in 8 goals (4 goals and 4 assists). He scored a goal and provided an assist to help Lyon beat PL champions Man City (2-1) in the Champions League at the Etihad.

Two days back L’Equipe reported that Fekir is expecting to leave the club next summer. The Lyon captain’s current deal will expire in 2020 and as reported by Evening Standard last month, it would cost Liverpool over £50million to revive the deal to sign him. In your opinion, should Klopp make a move to lure him in January?
