Lyon forward Nabil Fekir's Liverpool move falls through

BREAKING NEWS Lyon pull plug on Fekir's Liverpool switch

The two sides had been in talks over a deal for the playmaker worth £52.75m plus a maximum of £4.4m in add-ons but he will be staying with the Ligue 1 club.

Nabil Fekir would be a great addition to the Liverpool FC team under Jurgen Klopp, Nick Wright has claimed.

Numerous reports have cited Liverpool's attempt of lowering Fekir's transfer fee as the main reason Lyon scrapped the move.

However, it would appear Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is likely to sell Fekir after the World Cup. The transfer window is long.

Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Faulkner to the Liverpool club.

A product of Lyon's successful youth academy, the skillful forward has 58 goals in 161 games for Lyon.

Liverpool was hoping to add Fekir to their off-season signings of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig's Naby Keita.

The collapse - for now at least - of Liverpool's move for Fekir will be a setback for Jurgen Klopp.

A source told ESPN FC on Thursday that Liverpool were confident about securing a €60 million deal for the France worldwide, despite earlier comments from Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas that no transfer would be concluded before the World Cup.

Liverpool's medical staff flew out to Paris on Thursday, and Le Graet said they have examined the 24-year-old: "He had his medical visit at Clairefontaine".

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped.

Liverpool supporters won't be able to breathe a sigh of relief until the deal is completed, but it seems there's a good chance it will go through. "There is something logical, it has already been done for others".
