It’s been a strange 12 months for Nabil Fekir. Heading into the final stages of the 2017/18 campaign, he was one of the most in-form attackers in world football. Liverpool’s interest leaked in May and he was almost a Red before he jetted off to the World Cup.
On paper he was perfect for Jürgen Klopp’s side. He was also perfect for a number of Europe’s elite. The Premier League leaders agreed on a deal to sign the versatile forward, with a bid in the region of £50million convincing Jean-Michel Aulas to part with his prized asset. A move to Anfield fell at the final hurdle, but that didn’t stop him being linked with both Chelsea and Barcelona heading into the final few days of the summer transfer window.
