Liverpool have ended their pursuit of Olympique Lyon’s Nabil Fekir after they decided to make Sadio Mane their new number 10.
The Reds have been looking to replace Philippe Coutinho this summer, but a move for Fekir fell through after he failed his medicals.
Reports emerged this week that Liverpool are planning to restart talks with the French giants for Fekir, but after landing Allison for a record £65 million fee, Jurgen Klopp told the club’s media that; ‘we have all we need’.
This would be a major blow to most Liverpool fans who have been excited by the new arrivals at Anfield but were also hoping to see Fekir added to their team.
The Reds have also confirmed that Sadio Mane would be taking over the number 10 shirt vacated by Philippe Coutinho last winter.
The Senegalese attacker has become one of Klopp’s most important players and he netted 20 goals in all competitions for the Reds last season. Their fans would be hoping the jersey would see him perform even better when the new campaign gets underway.
