The France international came close to completing a £53 million switch to Anfield only for the deal to be called off last week.
Fekir had agreed personal terms and had even chosen his squad number but Liverpool opted to pull out of the deal after concerns were raised about the midfielder’s right knee, which was operated on twice inside the space of a year due to a cruciate ligament rupture.
According to The Sun, Lyon remain open to selling Fekir but have raised the player’s asking price to £66m.

Last week, L’Equipe claimed that were not completely satisfied with the results of his medical and attempted to renegotiate Fekir’s valuation with Lyon.
The midfielder required surgery after suffering a cruciate ligament rupture in September 2015 and he needed a second operation on the same knee nearly a year later.
Fekir made 40 appearances for Lyon last season, scoring 23 goals and registering eight assists.
The 24-year-old came on as a second-half substitute in France’s 2-1 win over Australia on Saturday.
