Fekir who was on the verge of sealing a deal to Liverpool from Lyon for £53m last weekend had the deal thrashed over over concerns about his medical.
However, there are indications that the Anfield bosses could revive their interest to sign him if the France international becomes available at a cheaper price. But former Liverpool winger John Barnes believes supporters should not be concerned if Klopp abandons his interest.
“If they feel that there is a medical issue then they shouldn’t [sign him],” Barnes, speaking on behalf of Bonus Code Bets, told DailyStar.
“Liverpool have to do what they think is right and Jurgen Klopp has to make those decisions.
“Obviously, we trust Jurgen Klopp and the choices he makes so if Jurgen Klopp decides not to sign him then we shouldn’t say no.
“If he decides to sign him with his slight injury but it’s not an injury that’s going to stop him playing and we feel it’s worth it then I’ll back him.”
One of the main priorities on Liverpool’s transfer agenda this summer is a new goalkeeper following Loris Karius’ two catastrophic errors in the Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid. A mistake that pressed home the anxiety among fans and pundits that a new man was needed between the sticks.
