Jurgen Klopp has apparently already met up with Lyon forward Nabil Fekir with regards to a summer switch to Liverpool for the player.
That's the claim made by French journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin, who says that unless anything unforeseen occurs, the 24-year-old should pitch up at Anfield next season.
Supposedly there are very good relations between Klopp and Fekir, and he could make the move for a fee of around €70m, which was reported by another French journalist in Loic Tanzi of RMC.
The latest news is sure to excite Reds supporters, who have been digesting the rumours about the Frenchman over the past couple of weeks.
Fekir has scored 17 times for Lyon in 28 Ligue 1 matches this season and laid on two assists, and is one of French football's most exciting attackers.
He has also been linked with a move to Arsenal, who allegedly sent scouts to watch him in action against Dijon last month and Chelsea, who remain hopeful of signing him.
Either way, Fekir will definitely leave Lyon this summer after coming to a gentleman's agreement with the club, and it certainly looks like Anfield is his most likely destination at this point.
The star refused to be drawn on his impending move away following the game with Troyes at the weekend though.
He said as quoted by the Metro: "There’s nothing for the moment. I’m still at Lyon. There are two matches left. We’ll prepare for them in the best possible way. At the end of the season, we’ll see, but for the moment, there’s nothing."
