GETTY Jurgen Klopp consoles Salah as he trudges off the pitch in Kiev

Maurizio Sarri signed Jorginho last month but the Blues boss has confirmed he's still looking to sign another midfielder to play alongside the Italian and N'Golo Kante and it seems Fekir has emerged as a prime target.

France Football also add Chelsea have the means to convince Fekir his future lies at Stamford Bridge.

Liverpool spent a world record £67 million to bring Alisson to Anfield as Klopp ended his search for a replacement for error-prone Loris Karius and out of favour Simon Mignolet.

The 25-year-old impressed on his pre-season bow against Napoli on Saturday, but Souness believes he still has plenty to prove if he is to be the answer in a problematic area for Liverpool.

Mahindra has a historic relationship and agreements with FCA and its predecessors that go back 70 years. The trucks can be found at off-road vehicle dealers with prices starting around $15,000.

Fekir hinted today it is possible for a switch to materialise before the transfer window closes. "An all-round good performance for the first game, especially because I think everyone can imagine what happens inside a human being in a situation like that, playing the first game after all the things that were written about it and all that stuff", Klopp gushed at his post-match press conference in Dublin, Ireland.

"He's in the dressing room so I have to see him first before I can say more". But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very fast in football, ' he told OLTV.

We have very good midfielders, but maybe a midfielder with different characteristics. "I like him a lot and I'm happy we have him in our squad". We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.It's a bit like the French team: there is a mix between young and old, with more experienced players than others.

Persistent rumours have suggested Liverpool may try to revive the deal, but those stories have been emanating from France rather than Merseyside and Anfield insiders have suggested they have not re-opened talks with Lyon over a fresh deal for Fekir. "We feel good together and I hope that Lyon will have a very good season".
