Liverpool unable to secure Fekir deal

Nabil Fekir in action against the Republic of Ireland last month

When the deal was not made official on Friday, doubts were cast over the player's fitness as he had suffered a serious injury to his right knee previously.

A screenshot has been circulating on Twitter that shows Nabil Fekir in a Liverpool kit which appears to be the type of video the club uses to announce signings.

French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet revealed the Lyon star had passed a medical ahead of a statement from the Ligue 1 club that negotiations had ended.

"It's under negotiation, I think it will be done".

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. "I spent 15 minutes with him this morning [Saturday], and he's anxious by the France team".

If the film collects Rs 280 crore more then it will secure a position on the list of 2018's commercial hit films. Heaping praises on director Ranjith, she asserts the film has a stamp of the director all over it.

"Although Liverpool have been Nabil's priority among a number of offers from ambitious clubs, Lyon are overjoyed that they can count on the presence of their captain, who will be a significant part of their 2018-19 season as they enter the Champions League after finishing [Ligue 1] in third". He's in good spirits. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

"It's always like that when you talk about a transfer".

Fekir's transfer saga has been a long one, with Lyon recently denying any deal would happen before the World Cup, that starts next week, before rumours emerged that a deal could be completed by the end of this week.

The French global scored 18 goals whilst chipping in with seven assists, ultimately helping Lyon to secure Champions League qualification as well as giving last season's defending champions AS Monaco a run for their money.
