Lyon Cancel Dealings With Liverpool Over Nabil Fekir Transfer

Although Lyon's dismissal may well be the result of some hard-bargaining from the French club, some figures are under the impression that Fekir's move to the Premier League is not dead yet.

Nabil Fekir will not be moving to Liverpool, according to a statement released by Lyon.

The France global was expected to join Jurgen Klopp's side before Les Bleus left for the World Cup, but OL have now ended talks and called off the deal.

In fact, latest reports from RMC Sport claim that the French worldwide has already passed his medical in France, and Liverpool could announce his arrival later today.

The paper added that Kurz is set to discuss the issue with the U.S. ambassador to Germany, Richard Grenell, in Berlin next week. He also cited Soviet successes in the space race while pledging to launch 600 new satellites and develop a super-heavy rocket.

On Friday afternoon the move appeared a certainty with a £53million fee agreed with Lyon.

Fekir, who drawn keen interest from some of the top clubs in Europe this summer, including Bayern Munich and Arsenal, will become Liverpool's third high-profile signing for next season.

Fekir is one of the best attacking players in Europe who would be a great signing or Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

This is a huge blow for Liverpool, as adding Fekir to a midfield three that now includes both Naby Keita and Fabinho would have made them immediate title contenders.

The latest development in the on-off transfer saga came after FFF chief Noel Le Graet had earlier said: "Nabil Fekir is in the process of being transferred".

His form was nowhere near the level he reached in the 2016/17 season - he only scored two goals and laid on eight assists in the league in 30 appearances.

With France being one of the hotly tipped favourites for the tournament, it could be a while before Liverpool and Lyon return to the negotiating table.

Liverpool were obviously cautious of spending £54 million on a player that could have a long-term knee issue.
