Nabil Fekir continues to be heavily linked to Liverpool.

Nabil Fekir‘s agent has confirmed Liverpool‘s interest in the Lyon captain and talisman, adding that no agreement has been reached between the two clubs over the Frenchman’s transfer.

“Talks with Liverpool will only happen when there is an agreement with Lyon and (club owner) Jean-Michel Aulas gives the green light,” agent Jean-Pierre Bernes told French outlet Le Progres .

“Liverpool’s interest exists but for now nothing is done. The transfer window is long and other clubs could show interest.”

Fekir, who could cost up to £60 million, has also been linked with Chelsea, Atletico Madrid, and Bayern Munich.

Liverpool are overhauling their midfield this summer, with Naby Keita set to join from RB Leipzig after a deal was agreed last summer, and Fabinho having signed from Monaco last month. Fekir could be the missing piece that allows the Reds to mount a more sustained challenge for the Premier League title.

Once again, Lewandowski is linked with a transfer.

The Premier League transfer window is now open and the market in the rest of Europe will spark into life soon (June 8).

With the transfer rumours growing in pace and volume during this ‘silly season’, it can be difficult and painstaking to separate the stories of some legitimacy from the rest of the noise.

Fortunately, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to do it for you.

Below, you’ll find some of the latest transfer news churned out of the rumour mill broken down and analysed for your benefit along with our calculated predictions.

ROBERT LEWANDOWSKI – FROM BAYERN MUNICH TO JUVENTUS

Why it will happen: At 29, the Pole has hinted that he wants to secure one last final move while he is at the peaks of his powers. Talk of a transfer to Real Madrid seems to have died down, given Juventus potentially a free passage to sign him.

Why it won’t happen: Bayern Munich, who face somewhat of a rebuilding job next season under new boss Niko Kovac, will be reluctant to sell their star striker and his €80m (Dh343m) price tag is sure to be a stumbling block for most sides.

Prediction: It is all set to be potentially a defining summer for Lewandowski one way or the other, so expect his future to be finalised after the World Cup.

Rating – 7/10

DAVY KLAASSEN – FROM EVERTON TO BESIKTAS

Why it will happen: The Dutch midfielder has endured a torrid time at Goodison Park and with there being no guarantee new boss Marco Silva will rate him, his prospects of regular first-team football lie away from Everton.

Why it won’t happen: Admirably, the 25-year-old has insisted he wants to stay and fight for his place. Given he is on a long-term contract, there is no way the Blues can shift him easily.

Prediction: The former Ajax captain can reignite his club and international career with the Turkish giants and start to get back on the right path.

STEVEN N’ZONZI – FROM SEVILLA TO ARSENAL

Why it will happen: The powerful France midfielder is thought to be keen to reunite with former Sevilla boss Unai Emery at the Emirates, and indeed return to the Premier League having previously plied his trade with Blackburn Rovers and Stoke City.

Why it won’t happen: Given the 29-year-old is busy with World Cup football over the next few weeks, it could hold up the deal and enable other clubs to talk to the star.

Prediction: Emery is the key factor in this prospective transfer and if he fully pursues his man, expect it to go through.

Fred in action at Anfield on Sunday.

Brazil midfielder Fred has insisted his focus remains firmly on the World Cup amid rumours of an impending £52million move from Shakhtar Donetsk to Manchester United.

The 25-year-old, who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford, came on as a second-half substitute in Sunday’s 2-0 friendly win over Croatia at Anfield.

Fred told Brazilian newspaper Globo: “I’ll still talk to my agents to find out the reality of it.

“I want to focus only on the team. It’s a unique time, the World Cup. We have to try to forget things from outside.”

Reports in Brazil indicated that a deal to become United’s first signing of the summer is so close that the player is due to use his time in the north-west to head to Old Trafford for a medical.

But Fred was evasive when questioned about his exact itinerary, insisting: “I’m going to talk to the people and meet my friends. I still do not know where I’m going.”

Meanwhile Brazil coach Tite urged the player to resolve his future as soon as possible in order to retain focus on the finals in Russia.

Brazil complete preparations ahead of their quest for a six World Cup title when they face Austria in Vienna next Sunday.

After the 2-0 win, Tite told reporters: “When there is some referral, which is inevitable, the plan is to resolve it as soon as possible.

“If I were a {manager}, I would ask to hire him too.”

United are already reportedly close to agreeing to sign 19-year-old right-back Diogo Dalot from Porto.
