Liverpool forward Sadio Mane on Olympique Lyon captain Nabil Fekir potential transfer

A reporter posed the question to Klopp in his post-match press conference, saying: "Stories have come out in France during the game about Liverpool agreeing a deal with Lyon for Nabil Fekir".

Dembele has also struggled since his return, with a Champions League goal against Chelsea in March one of the few highlights to his campaign.

Tottenham and Chelsea are two and three points behind Liverpool respectively, but crucially, both London clubs have a game in hand on Jurgen Klopp's men.

Liverpool forward Sadio Mane has welcomed reports linking the Premier League club with a sensational off-season move for Olympique Lyon captain Nabil Fekir. Dembele? Oooh, is he on the market?

The Liverpool manager spoke to the media this afternoon following his side's 1-0 defeat at the hands of Chelsea in the English Premier League.

Thank you all for being such an important of my life and hope to see you soon. Later, in his post-match press conference, he said: "It was a very sad day".

Klopp also responded jokingly to claims Liverpool were interested in Barcelona's Ousmane Dembele.

Fekir has scored 17 times in Ligue 1 this season, and laid on a further seven assists, though has himself played down suggestions of an imminent move.

He said: "We have had no contact with Liverpool today. I have already said much more than I usually do".

According to RMC Sport former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier has recommended the France worldwide to his former club, although Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas has since denied that any deal has been reached.

"We had these moments towards the end, and these high balls into the box where we were a little bit unlucky. We hope to keep him and have him playing the Champions League with us next year". "Now I'm interested" he said of the player who joined Klopp's former club Borussia Dortmund in 2016.
