Danny Mills speaks out on Rangers chances of landing Ryan Kent

Danny Mills speaks out on Rangers chances of landing Ryan Kent

However, after his medical, the club pulled out of the deal over concerns about Fekir's previous injury history with his knee.

Kent will reportedly cost around £12m with Liverpool aware of what fee they could command from Premier League clubs.

Fekir enjoyed a good outing with Lyon last season, finishing the year with 12 goals and nine assists from 39 appearances.

Jurgen Klopp is prepared to give Harry Wilson the chance to prove himself at Liverpool FC rather than immediately selling him, according to reports in the British media.

Despite all reputable sources flatly insisted that the deal died that day last summer, the tabloid obsession with Fekir to Liverpool has continued to push tenuous links all year.

Speaking in the days after the breakdown of his initial move to Anfield, the player's agent claimed that it was "not the end of the story", while last month Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas confirmed he will leave this summer.

However, with the club still wanting around £45million for a player with just 12 months left on his contract it would benefit the Ligue 1 club if they can generate an auction for his services.

Though certainly less reliable than Collet-Gaudin given he writes for La Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy, Nicolo Schira has added that "Liverpool have offered Fekir a contract until 2024 [worth] €4 million at year".

The 21-cap France worldwide is out of contract at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais next summer however, and is expected to be sold for a smaller fee than the one Liverpool agreed to pay before pulling the plug.

Nevertheless, the name-check in Le Progres has been jumped on by the Daily Mail, who claim that Liverpool "reignited" their interest in Fekir.
