Reports making the round claims Liverpool are working round the clock in making a £60m ($80m) move for Nabil Fekir after our Champions League final against Real Madrid this weekend.

The Mirror claims Jurgen Klopp has identified Fekir as the man he wants to replace Philippe Coutinho.

Liverpool still have enough cash left from the Brazilian’s January sale to Barcelona to pay close to the asking price, despite them splashing out £70m on Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk in the same winter window.

It is believed Liverpool want an agreement before the World Cup starts if possible but the time frame is tight to conclude a deal that quickly, with Fekir heading into France’s pre-tournament camp.

The 24-year-old has enjoyed another excellent season in France and earned a call-up to Didier Deschamps’ World Cup squad. The France international is aware of Liverpool’s interest and, when asked about a possible transfer to Anfield by RTL replied: “Why not?”
