It'll be nice to sign a proper left footed midfielder in Nabil Fekir, brings balance to the side.
Can't remember the last time we had one, Nuri Sahin comes to mind. #LFC

Football Insider verdict:
The delight that the Liverpool fans are showing now will be nothing in comparison to their delight in actually seeing him play at Anfield. This is the signing that will cause all other big Premier League clubs a lot of worry ahead of the new season. The Frenchman is a top-quality goalscoring attacking midfielder who will be a great success in English football, as he’s got the physicality and strength to go with his exceptional technical quality. Although the Reds did really well without Coutinho last season, Fekir is a similar type of player and will bring back that playmaker role into the tactical system. No wonder the fans are happy.
