Lyon forward Nabil Fekir's Liverpool move falls through

Share

Lyon have officially announced on Saturday evening that they have terminated negotiations with Liverpool over the sale of captain Nabil Fekir, confirming that the proposed transfer will not take place.

Liverpool have already made some strong strides in the transfer market this summer, having recruited Fabinho from Monaco on top of the pre-agreed arrival of Naby Keita, and securing Fekir ahead of the World Cup would continue their excellent business.

"Liverpool position as things stand: there will be no deal". This is the second time it has happened to LFC in as many summer transfer windows.

"The transfer has not been done and even less so at this price", Jean-Michel Aulas, the Lyon chairman said in a message to l'AFP.

And makes me very sad for him to have - to have a succumbed to that", he shared. "My love & prayers are also [with] his family, friends and loved ones".

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. Talks can be resumed afterwards, though one side must compromise.

According to reports from L'Equipe, the star attacker will move to the Premier League for a fee of a staggering €65m, which could potentially increase as much as €72m due to added bonuses.

First signs of problems arose on Friday night.

Fekir suffered a knee injury two years ago and tests showed enough doubt for club medics to raise concerns over the player's fitness.

The 24-year-old was said to have rejected Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich in favour of a "dream move" to Anfield, with the late cancellation surely not sitting well in his camp.

"He passed his medical in Clairefontaine".

With France scheduled to play the United States tonight and then fly off to Russian Federation ahead of the World Cup, it now appears the 24-year-old will remain at Lyon, at least until after the tournament.
