Nabil Fekir is on the radar of Real Madrid after his Liverpool move broke down this summer.
The Lyon star has hit the ground running this season, shining against Manchester City in the Champions League.
And now it appears the Reds have fierce competition if they reignite their interest in the France international.
L’Equipe report that Los Blancos are monitoring his progress with a view to making a move in January or next summer.
Liverpool backed out of their agreed £60m deal with the Ligue 1 club, pointing to an old injury.
The 25-year-old will not have any shortage of offers though, after proving his class and fitness this term.
Whilst the Reds also face competition from Chelsea if they are to salvage the deal, Real’s interest could be a gamechanger.
After failing with moves for Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Eden Hazard , Florentino Perez may see Fekir as a more realistic Galactico to boost the talent at the disposal of Julen Lopetegui.
