Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are interested in signing Lyon captain Nabil Fekir.
That’s the claim being made in an article by German publication Kicker, who are reporting that the Bavarian club sent their head scout to watch him in action.
Bayern have struggled under new manager Nico Kovac so far this season as they sit four points behind Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund after eight games of the campaign.
The former Croatia international is reported to be keen on bringing in fresh faces when the transfer window opens in January and has identified Fekir as a potential target.
Laurent Bosser, head of Bayern’s scouting team, was in attendance to watch him in action as Lyon took on Shakhtar Donestk in the second round of Champions League fixtures recently.
Liverpool came close to completing a deal to sign the France international in the Summer, before the World Cup kicked off, but pulled out at the last moment after concerns were raised by his medical assessment.
Many Reds are hoping that the club will go back with another offer to sign him in the new year, but that is looking increasingly unlikely.
