However, Fekir's proposed move to Liverpool FC fell through due to the Reds' reported concerns about a knee injury.

Jurgen Klopp is looking for a new attacker to join his dynamic lineup, and is reportedly set to make an offer for Real Madrid wonderkid Marco Asensio.

And according to Spanish newspaper Sport, Asensio's possible exit is exclusively down to Real president Florentino Perez's pursuit of PSG's Neymar.

Real Madrid, who have appointed Julen Lopetegui as their manager to replace Zinedine Zidane, have yet to hold talks with Asensio about his future and will wait until the end of Spain's World Cup campaign. But perhaps Nabil Fekir denied the news about his injury and proclaimed his knee is "super good".

The links to Asensio will understandably excite Liverpool supporters, as the prospect of him alongside the likes of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane would be frightening for the rest of the Premier League. But considering the fact that Real Madrid view him as an integral part of the team's future, it would take a huge bid for Madrid to even consider the start of a potential negotiation. But, in order to impart with over €300 million for the Brazilian superstar, the Real Madrid president will have to procure funds from player sales, having spent around €100 million in his compatriots Rodrygo and Vinicius Junior.

Asensio looking for a move, or perhaps another contract improvement, would be a further issue for the Bernabeu hierarchy given that Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Mateo Kovacic have all talked publicly about leaving the club in recent weeks.

Therefore, Liverpool seem to be on stable ground as they look to land Asensio this summer.
