Liverpool have reportedly offered Lyon’s Nabil Fekir a lucrative five-year deal after renewing their interest in the playmaker.
According to La Gazzetta dello Sport journalist Nicolo Schira, cited by This is Futbol, the Reds have offered the 25-year-old a five-year deal worth £3.5 million a year.

Recent reports suggested boss Jurgen Klopp has reignited his interest in Fekir and the Reds have made contact with the Ligue 1 side over a possible deal for the Frenchman.
However, it is thought that Liverpool are unwilling to match Lyon’s £44.5 million valuation for Fekir, considering he has just 12 months left on his current deal, so a deal could once again prove to be complex.
Fekir enjoyed a productive season in Ligue 1, scoring 12 times and providing nine assists in all competitions under Bruno Genesio.
The dynamic midfielder looks set to finally be on the move, and Liverpool will be hoping to officially announce Fekir as their player this summer after coming so close 12 months ago.
Four more positions Liverpool may look to bolster this summer
Liverpool could look to bring in a back-up replacement for Alisson if Simon Mignolet departs Anfield this summer.
With Nathaniel Clyne seemingly surplus to requirements on Merseyside, Klopp may look to add to his right-back options as cover for the impressive Trent Alexander-Arnold.
There is also little cover for Andy Roberston at left-back with Alberto Moreno leaving when his deal expires. Klopp could look to sign a back-up option for the Scot ahead of the new season.
Despite Divock Origi’s heroics in the past six months off the bench, Klopp may well look to bring in another high-quality forward to help Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino next season.
