Lyon pull the plug on Liverpool's Fekir deal

"Although Liverpool have been Nabil's priority among a number of offers from ambitious clubs, Lyon are overjoyed that they can count on the presence of their captain, who will be a significant part of their 2018-19 season as they enter the Champions League after finishing [Ligue 1] in third".

Now, a photo is circulating on Twitter which appears to be a screenshot of a video similar to that which is usually used to announce signings by Liverpool.

"Liverpool's interest exists, but for now nothing is done".

The French outfit have not ruled out the possibility of Fekir moving to another European powerhouse though, provided that the price is right.

Fekir's dribbling ability and clinical edge has won him admirers across Europe, with Jurgen Klopp keen to add to his already impressive set of attacking options.

Even if the relationship has been strained, it's clear the Spurs aren't ready to give up on him. Ramona Shelburne and Michael C.

Nabil Fekir is soon to be a Red!

Fekir enjoyed a career-best season with Lyon in Ligue 1, scoring 18 times in 30 games and supplying a further eight assists.

A fee of £53 million with add-ons was reported to have been agreed by outlets including The Guardian and The Mirror, while French sport daily L'Equipe stated on Thursday that a fee of €65 million (roughly £57 million) with €7 million to come later had now been agreed, with a medical due to take place on Friday.

Liverpool, on the other hand, were in dire need of someone like Fekir, especially after the departure of Philipe Coutinho earlier this year. He was Ligue 1's second best dribbler past year, which is a no mean feat considering the fact that the French top flight boasts some of the best up-and-coming dribblers.

However, well sourced stories from reporters close to Liverpool suggest the £50m deal to bring Fekir to Anfield is close to being completed, yet Aulas has continued to reject suggestions that he is close to selling his latest big-name star to an English club.
