Lyon in no rush to sell Fekir to Liverpool

"Unfortunately, occasionally I get some yellow cards for that but I think that won't be a problem here".

Decisions must also be made on a raft of other players, most of whom spent last season out on loan.

Fabinho has been on the radar of a host of Premier League clubs like Manchester United and Manchester City.

Liverpool have agreed a £40m fee with Monaco for Brazil midfielder Fabinho as a replacement for Emre Can as Jürgen Klopp steps up his summer recruitment drive.

Silva, who plays for Paris Saint-Germain, has faced Fabinho many times in France.

This season, the Frenchman has been playing for Lyon in a position that hasn't existed in Jurgen Klopp's Liverpool side, just off a central striker. What we have - in terms of our environment at Melwood and the team - means anyone coming in must be of that build.

There was disappointment in Europe, however, as Fekir missed the CSKA Moscow defeat that ultimately cost them a place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League, the final of which was played at Parc OL. Also, worldwide caps for Brazil tells you something about him.

"He has the ability and mentality to play at the highest level in a number of positions". Klopp sometimes opts for two sitting midfielders against stronger opponents - something more like a 4-2-3-1 - but he typically prefers one deep-lying midfielder flanked by two energetic No 8s.

"After he arrived here he was able to achieve higher development at this football club".

"We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think", the manager explained to Liverpoolfc.com. I have to talk with [Lyon president] Jean-Michel Aulas and we'll see what happens next.

"I don't know how Liverpool are thinking about using him, but I am sure they can use him in both".
