Could the failure with the fekir transfer mean a fresh approach for lemar?

{Ed002's Note - Or maybe Liverpool could make a rationale decision about the way forward.}

I hope we go back for Fekir. We really need someone like him in that midfield. He's a quality operator.

Ed02 could you please elaborate on that comment. Way forward as in transfer targets or negotiations with Lyon.

{Ed002's Note - Lyon won’t be open to negotiations with Liverpool.}

What would be the more logical option in your opinion Ed002?

{Ed002's Note - Not making any knee jerk decision.}

Genuinely hard to think of attainable players of that quality and style around, without offering twice the fee.

Ed002, what do you reckon the most rational approach could be?

{Ed002's Note - Julian Draxler still might be a much better option than Lemar or Fekir, and he is available.}

Hi Ed002. Your comment above that Lyon won’t be open to negotiations. Does that mean they have set the price/ terms and we either pay it or we don’t, or does that mean they are no longer interested in selling Fekir (at least, to us)?

Bit worried we have made fools of ourselves again here.

{Ed002's Note - Why would OL want to start negotiating? You pay the price and close the deal, or look elsewhere.}

I would turn my attention to a GK (Alisson) and a backup for Mane and Salah (Shaqiri or Simon) . Revisit the CAM situation once the world cup is over.

Thanks ed002. That’s exactly what I meant. Lyon have said pay up or shut up.

I would love to see Draxler at Liverpool. I hope we make an approach.

I know business is business and you want the best deal, but we Do seem a little arragont to say the least expecting a team to let a star player go cheap when our demands for fringe players are well over the top . I don't know if we conducted ourselves in the right manner years ago but always seemed to me that Sir John Smith and Peter Robinson were professional in the way they did business .

I hope we do the smart thing and pay up for Fekir.

I got a feeling it will be Jack Wilshere on a free transfer. Quality CAM, season BPL campaigner, and England International.

Would be more than happy to have Draxler at Liverpool, runs behind the lines from midfield, hard to pick up someone who makes those runs.

It's was always going to be about price. The specifics may be wrong, but the figures quoted were far too low for a player of his supposed quality, in today's market place, dealing with a known tough negotiator. We got an exorbitant amount for Coutinho and regardless of the fact they are not connected, Aulas knows we got paid handsomely and that Fekir would be Coutinho's replacement. He's just looking out for Lyon - he has set a price and we have to meet it, simple really.

I agree with you ed. No need to make knee jerk reactions either cough up or move on. Draxler would be a good option imo and possibly a better fit.

Why would Lyon be open to negotiations again?
We tried negotiating it didn’t work. They are firm on what they want and that is the best price they can get for Fekir. They hold all the cards. If we want Fekir all we have to do is meet their demands. If the club isn’t willing to pay what Lyon want they should move on to other targets. It’s not that difficult to understand.

Liverpool Country, did you honestly call Wilshere a quality central attacking midfielder? He’s nothing of a sort. Shockingly average player who we shouldn’t consider even on a free.
