Liverpool resume talks to sign £52m-rated fan favourite target

Liverpool have reportedly resumed talks over a possible switch for France midfielder Nabil Fekir.

The Lyon midfielder was on the verge of joining the Reds before the World Cup, but a deal collapsed after the 24-year-old attended his medical.

According to The Mirror, however, Liverpool have reopened negotiations with Fekir, and hope to conclude a deal after the World Cup.

Lyon president Jean-Michael Aulas insisted after the previous saga that any deal for the midfielder would cost more than what was originally agreed, although the Merseyside outfit are still allegedly interested in chasing up a contract.

Fekir is yet to be handed a start for France in Russia, but has made substitute appearances throughout the tournament.
