Liverpool's £53m move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir is OFF

Liverpool's £53m move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir is OFF

Liverpool's medical staff found a slight issue with the player's right knee - he had suffered a serious ACL injury during the 2015-16 season.

"Lyon is announcing that the negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded and Lyon have chose to put an end to the negotiations tonight at 8 p.m", the statement read.

However a statement from Les Gones on Friday, suggesting that media reports claiming a deal had been reached were false, cast doubt on a positive outcome for the Merseysiders. "He's in the middle of negotiations and I think it's done", the FFF president said. "I spent 15 minutes with him this morning [Saturday], and he's anxious by the France team".

Jurgen Klopp and sporting director Michael Edwards were particularly keen on concluding a deal for Fekir before the 24-year-old headed off to the World Cup with the France squad.

"He passed his medical in Clairefontaine".

Now we must wait and see if Liverpool and Klopp go back in for a player they have coveted so much.

"It's always like that when you talk about a transfer: each tries to raise his price, to lower his price, when there's a hiccup someone wants it reduced".

The Merseyside outfit have funds to spend after the Reds sold Philippe Coutinho in a £142m deal from FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.

More is likely to be known on the matter after France's final World Cup warm-up game against the United States, which the attacking midfielder is set to play a part in.

"It would be better for him, but he's not perturbed", he said of the No.10.

Fekir scored 21 goals and added nine assists in 39 appearances for Lyon last season.
