Liverpool have reportedly renewed their interest in Real Betis midfielder Nail Fekir, according to reports. 

The Frenchman was close to signing for the six-time Champions League winners in 2018 but his deal fell through.

Following this broken down move, there were multiple reports disclosing why his move to Merseyside fell at the last hurdle.

Some of the reports claimed a failed medical with knee problems being quoted as the issue  - however, he denied these claims in 2018.

Whilst, the Daily Mail said in 2019 that the cause of the break down in talks was the player's brother-in-law. Although, this has never been proved.

He was close to agreeing a £52million move to Merseyside and signing a five-year deal before talks between the English and French club went cold. 

A year later, he signed for Spanish side Real Betis for a reported €19.75million and has gone on to make 64 appearances, scoring 15 goals.

Todo Fichajes have reported that Jurgen Klopp is "considering" a renewed big for the 27-year-old. 

With just two years remaining on his deal in Seville, the Spanish outlet reports that in order to pry him away from the Estadio Benito Villamarín, it'll cost between €35-40million. 

It appears unlikely that Fekir will make the switch to Liverpool, despite Mohamed Salah's uncertain future, the Reds head coach will not be looking to sell any of his key forwards in the summer.
