Recent reports suggested Liverpool were also closing in on a deal for Nabil Fekir, the Lyon and France ace.

"He could do attractive things here and he will enjoy his time with us".

"We always invest in the squad every summer", he said.

The Reds received £142m from Barcelona for Coutinho in January - and Jurgen Klopp will surely be looking to add some exciting attacking options to his team this summer.

The 24-year-old has netted 20 goals for OL this term, with 17 of them coming in Ligue 1 to help them up to second in the division with two games left to play.

Liverpool are back in action on Sunday afternoon when the Reds host Brighton in the final day of the Premier League season (3pm kick-off).

News paired with nonprofit social science research firm RTI International to compile the rankings, the website said. Hudson High School ranked 21st and Charles City High School ranked 25th, both receiving a bronze medal.

The father of the popular French global has revealed the truth behind all the reports linking Fekir with a move to Merseyside.

I can guarantee you that he never met (Jurgen Klopp). That's wrong. I hear there are arrangements, stuff like that... I was surprised, as was Nabil. It's not true, otherwise, Nabil would have told me right away.

"As long as we are not 100 per cent in the Champions League, this last game is the most important of the season", Klppp told Sky Sports.

Nicolas de Tavernost, one of the French club's majority shareholders, said last month: 'There is a major player from Brazil who you know wants to leave the club and we will do that in all of our interests.

While possible future team-mate Sadio Mane spoke enthusiastically to the media of the considerable impact that Fekir would make on Merseyside, Aulas quickly denied that there had been any contact with Liverpool. While he may not be on the top of Klopp's transfer targets list, Liverpool could definitely benefit from Nabil Fekir's services. The basis is obviously good because if we win against Brighton we are in the Champions League.

It looks like Liverpool still have plenty of work to do if they hope to sign Fekir.
