Everyone remembers when Liverpool tried and failed to sign Nabil Fekir several years ago.
In 2018, Liverpool were on the verge of signing the former-Lyon playmaker, citing the player''s failure to undergo a medical.
Fekir did not make a comeback in a move made to Jurgen Klopps, which erupted many members of the Anfield club at the time.
According to The Express, the Merseysiders initially turned to Lucas Paqueta as an alternative.
And now, four years later, Liverpool have a way of signing the Brazilian at Lyon for a knock-down figure.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer, although Klopps haven''t been linked.
Paqueta is a person who the German manager might work with.
The Reds, at the moment, don''t look like they''re signing the attacking midfielder they need, thus a relatively injury-prone Thiago Alcantara will still be Klopps most innovative player from the centre of the park next season.
Deutably, Liverpool might have a way to get Paqueta.
This morning, the Ligue 1 outfit indicated that Takumi Minamino and the English giants should offer their Japan international in a different version of a swap agreement for the South American wizard.
In order to balance up Paquetas'' valuation, Liverpool may need to add funds to the mix.
Since the Fekir fiasco, Klopp hasn''t really signed a proper number 10, with Thiago, as mentioned, being the closest thing to a Philippe Coutinho-esque player.
Paqueta is a talented player. It''s time the Reds get creative and bring him to Merseyside.
