How do you go about improving a forward line who have plundered 90 goals between them this season?
By adding another creative genius behind them.
And Liverpool appear to be on the brink of securing a man who fits the bill and a player fully capable of filling the void vacated by Philippe Coutinho.
Nabil Fekir says he is “looking into the future” with his £60m Liverpool move reportedly “99 per cent complete”.
The Lyon midfielder is expected to arrive at Anfield as Jurgen Klopp’s first signing of the window, say the Mirror.
Fekir started what is thought to be his final game for the Ligue 1 side against Nice last night.The club captain has scored 22 goals in 38 games this season.
A Memphis Depay hat-trick led Lyon to a 3-2 home win over their opponents.
And Frenchman Fekir appeared to signal he is ready to move when speaking after the game.
Asked if last night was his goodbye to the Groupama Stadium, Fekir, 24, said: “Farewell? Frankly, I don’t know.
“I spent an exceptional season here with players, fans and the staff. We ended up in beauty.
“You have to pass a course, it is true. I think I gave everything to Lyon.
“Now it is time to look into the future.”
He was also given a rousing ovation by Lyon fans after departing the field in what is expected to be his final appearance for the club:
Fekir will join RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita at Anfield should he move this summer.
Liverpool are next in action in the Champions League final on Saturday.
Klopp’s men, who finished fourth in the Premier League this season, take on Zinedine Zidane’s Real Madrid.
