Reliable French news outlet L'Equipe reports that Lyon will sell Nabil Fekir this summer at the right price and it remains to be seen whether or not Liverpool will meet their valuation of the playmaker.

"I feel brilliant in this squad". I am very good here.

Liverpool are set to start the new season with one of Sturridge, Shaqiri or Mané as their no.10 instead of Fekir but reports from France suggest there is still hope. France Football are reporting that Fekir could complete a move to Stamford Bridge by Thursday when the transfer window closes. The attacking midfielder was on the verge of completing the move to the Merseyside club, he even completed LFC TV interview and chose his shirt number but the failed medical prompted the Reds to sit on the negotiation table with Lyon President Aulas once again. We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.

Liverpool ace Mohamed Salah says he's happy with the club's transfer business this summer and doesn't believe further additions are needed. It's a bit like the French team: there is a mix between young and old, with more experienced players than others.

"We have a good group".

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was full of praise for Alisson Becker following the goalkeeper's impressive debut. "I am very good here", he told Lyon's website. Though there is nearly zero chance Liverpool signs him up this window before Friday's deadline, Fekir has only two years left in his contract.

He had a significant impact with Liverpool in the Premier League as the Reds secured a top-four spot, as well as leading Liverpool to the UEFA Champions League final.
