Liverpool star Sadio Mane has fuelled rumours of Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir joining him at Anfield in the summer by admitting he is keen to see the move happen.
Reports over the weekend suggested Fekir is a £70m target for Jurgen Klopp, and that the deal was all but done already.

If true, he would cost more then the £62million shelled out for RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita, who completes his switch at the end of the season, but less than Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchman cost £75million when he left Southampton for Merseyside in January.
Despite the added competition Fekir would bring, Mane says he would love to link up with the playmaker next season.
“Nabil is a very great player, if that’s the case, we will be really happy to have him here,” Mane is said to have told SFR Sport. “I think he would do very good things with us.
“We always need this kind of player, if we have him it’ll be fire!”
