Liverpool have made a decision on whether to revive their interest in Nabil Fekir

No Premier League club has enjoyed a more successful transfer window so far than Liverpool.

Since the window opened on May 17, Jurgen Klopp has secured the signings of Fabinho (£44m) and Xherdan Shaqiri (£12m) from Monaco and Stoke City respectively.

He's also welcomed Naby Keita to Merseyside having pre-agreed a £57m deal to sign the 23-year-old from RB Leigzig last year.

And then there's Alisson Becker, who has been linked with a move to Liverpool all summer and finally seems to be on the brink of joining.

Liverpool have negotiated a £66m fee for the Brazil goalkeeper and now talks are underway between the club and player.

It's believed that Alisson could become a Liverpool player as early as Friday should everything go to plan. A medical has also been pencilled in.

Alisson's signing is arguably the most important one in Liverpool's transfer window and club legend Graeme Souness thinks it's the right decision.


"I think as much as Jurgen would have wanted to be loyal and do right by the goalkeeper, he's got to go out and get another one," Souness said recently.

"That's simply because if Karius was to make the same mistake, or a mistake in a big game, it'd be down to the manager not correcting that situation.


"It's obvious to everyone - look at what happened in the Champions League final. So if Klopp is out to get Alisson or another top goalkeeper, he's doing the right thing."

Four signings worth a total of £180m is very good going from Liverpool - but what about a deal for Nabil Fekir?

Fekir came agonisingly close to joining the Reds for £53m last month only for the deal to collapse at the last minute when concerns were raised about his knee.


Liverpool fans are still keen for Klopp to sign the Lyon playmaker and now, according to the Independent, a decision has been made.

But it's bad news. Liverpool are not planning to revive their interest in Fekir and will instead spend the rest of the transfer window selling deadwood, like Simon Mignolet.

Only if Lyon agree to a "structured deal heavily laced with add-ons" will Liverpool go back in for Fekir, simply because it protects them against the Frenchman's injury problems.

It's a shame that Fekir most likely won't be coming to the Premier League this summer but you can hardly blame Liverpool for being cautious.
