Liverpool are unlikely to pursue a deal for Nabil Fekir, or indeed any other first team players, after securing a record-breaking transfer for AS Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker, according to reports.

‘We will be fine at the end. At the moment, I am happy with the squad. Could something still happen? We will see.”
