Liverpool will be pretty pleased with their start to the Premier League this season but there is a sense that they could be performing better.
The Reds are fancied by many to be the side to take on Manchester City this year for the Premier League title – with some even backing them to win the crown.
However, whilst City have been scintillating in attacking once again this time around, the Reds have lacked the same cutting edge that saw so many back them at the start of the season.
Of course, they are not far off and the ability to win games whilst playing below optimum is a needed one but, eventually, they’ll need to hit top gear.
Perhaps, then, they should be looking to sign Nabil Fekir in January.
The midfielder has started this season in decent nick with four goals and four assists in all competitions for French side Lyon.
Certainly, he is showing no signs of negativity after his move to the Reds fell through and it might be no shock if Liverpool did eventually get their man – as they did with Virgil van Dijk.
If Fekir did join, too, he’d add something that is currently missing in their make-up.
He’s a dynamic, explosive, forward-thinking attacking midfielder that can beat a man and make chances from deep and into the final third.
Liverpool, with Naby Keita struggling for fitness and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain also out, are currently lacking such a player in their ranks.
And, with the January window not far away and the Reds still well in title contention, it might be time to get the Fekir deal over the line.
