A cyclical person would brand The Sun opportunistic for running with this one.
Nabil Fekir was supposedly on his way to Liverpool, however their rumoured £53million pound bid wasn’t enough to get a deal for the Olympique Lionnais attacker over the line.
Olympique Lionnais’ magic number is thought to be £66million.
This is another right sided midfielder – perhaps the third this week – and …I’m losing the will to live as I cover this.
Look, he’s 24 and has won absolutely nothing of note in his entire career (which he’s spent with OL) since he began his profession career in the 2011/12 season.
Runner up this, runner up that.
Indeed, Nabil sprang to to life last term and scored 18 league goals from 30 appearances, but I am honestly struggling to guess an accurate valuation on this lad – even in the his inflated climate.
Fekir only scored 13 Ligue 1 goals in the his previous 3 seasons combined!
I’ll be honest.
Also this whole French thing isn’t working for me.
All the Whataboutery™ in the world counts for nothing when for every Thierry Henry or David Ginola you get 1000’s of Clinton Cards.
Fekir is linked to us because some of our support might be stupid enough to click on a link that suggests it’s a viable target.
I’ll apologise for wasting your time.
