Liverpool's £53m move for Nabil Fekir stalls over fitness concerns

Nabil Fekir to Liverpool Lyon have denied any transfer agreement with the Reds

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

The end result looks certain to be Fekir moving to Liverpool, but Aulas is clearly keen to make sure he controls the timing of that announcement.

Unconfirmed reports suggest that Liverpool attempted to renegotiate the fee late on after a problem was flagged up by the medical - believed to be involving Fekir's knee and his past injury problems.

Speaking on Saturday afternoon, French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet even appeared to confirm that a transfer was on course to be completed imminently, as Fekir had passed his medical at France's national football centre.

And Hislop insists that the transfer saga is far from over, predicting that Fekir will eventually finalise a move to Liverpool.

Liverpool's protracted deal to sign Nabil Fekir is now in doubt, according to the Telegraph. "It's part of the game", he said.

However, Lyon said on Saturday that talks about the potential transfer of their captain "had not succeeded". Olympique Lyonnais is delighted to be able to count on the presence of their captain in 2018-2019'.

Liverpool have been linked with the 24-year-old attacking midfielder for some time, and this week, there appeared to have been major developments.

"The midfielder was due to complete a medical at France's Clairefontaine training complex this morning, before his national team depart for Lyon to prepare for their final World Cup preparation game, against the U.S.".

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

France forward Fekir has always been linked with a big-money move to Anfield and enjoyed a stellar campaign in France's top flight this season - scoring 18 goals and supplying a further eight assists.
