Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has told John Henry his Nabil Fekir transfer plans

Liverpool manager Klopp will rely on Henry for transfer funds this summer as the Reds aim to build on their remarkable campaign.

It was a stunning season for the Merseyside giants, who won the Champions League trophy 12 months after a defeat to Real Madrid, while also finishing second in the Premier League table.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for the plethora of stars so far this summer, with links to Fekir refusing to go away.

The France international was on the cusp of a huge £53million transfer a year ago, only to end up staying at Lyon.

And Bleacher Report say that Klopp has told Henry he feels his Liverpool squad is complete.

The German is extremely confident that the team he has now is good enough to challenge Manchester City for the title next season.

And, regarding Fekir, Liverpool plan to only move for the World Cup winner should Lyon lower their demands.

Many expected him to join the club a year ago.

Photos even surfaced of him holding the Reds’ shirt – though images of him with the No 8 appeared to be wide of the mark.

Fekir’s agent lifted the lid on his failed move to Liverpool, admitting a they were on the verge of an agreement.

Jean-Pierre Bernes said: “It is not about staying here.

“And we will know maybe the real circumstances that prevented Fekir’s move to Liverpool. The knee was a part of it, but not only that.

“He had passed a medical, done photos with the Reds shirt…”

Speaking recently, meanwhile, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas admitted Fekir wanted to leave.

“His preference is towards a departure,” he told the club’s official website.

“We are open to discussions. We have no news.

“We are waiting for proposals in the coming days but for the moment we do not have any.”

Bleacher Report say Liverpool are also confident of keeping Mohamed Salah.

The Egypt international has been tipped to leave the club but it appears he will still be at Anfield next term.
