Liverpool will miss out on ANOTHER Lyon star after Fekir fiasco

Fekir has been in superb form for Lyon this season, scoring 24 goals and providing nine assists in 40 appearances, with his excellent showings helping to force his way into Didier Deschamps France squad for this summers World Cup in Russian Federation, where he has featured in both his Country's opening two fixtures.

Therefore the pair will "hold crunch talks" in July with the Real coach no doubt aware that Liverpool are circling.

Asensio is now with the Spanish national team at the World Cup, having featured in two of their three group games - albeit only cameo appearances. However, while he is rated quite highly across Europe, the lack of regular starts coming his way at the Bernabeu has led to speculation over his future.

Mario Gotze is eager to join Liverpool and play under manager Jurgen Klopp this summer, according to reports.

The former Espanyol star, who signed a new six-year deal with the Madrid side in September, made 53 appearances for Real last season, scoring 11 goals and assisting in a further six strikes.

Now plying his trade with French outfit Bordeaux, the Reds and Chelsea have been mooted as suitors but that was before rumours emerged indicating the winger was close to agreeing terms with Inter Milan.

But Liverpool is now preparing to spend the big money for one of Europe's hottest sensations in Asensio.

CaughtOffside understands Mourinho expressed an interest in Fekir earlier this summer, so it could be that this potential deal is back on following Liverpool's failure to snap him up.

Roma sporting director Monchi said: "There's no such thing anywhere in the world as an unsellable player. They are going to attack and we must be very careful with them because they have some very talented players", Asensio said as quoted by the Spanish daily Marca.
