Deal's OFF!! Nabil Fekir to stay put as Lyon make public declaration

Nabil Fekir in training with France ahead of World Cup

Nabil Fekir is "optimistic" he will be able to complete a move from Lyon to Liverpool this summer and has had his medical ahead of the transfer, according to President of the French Football Federation Noel Le Graet.

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.

"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.

Liverpool owner John W. Henry's wife, Linda Pizzuti Henry, has replied to a fan's post about Fekir, as shown below.

"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.".

For one episode of his popular CNN series " Parts Unknown ", Anthony Bourdain traveled to western MA to interview Dr. Ruth Potee about what she refers to now as the "epidemic of hopelessness and despair" around opioids.

However, instead of the anticipated arrival of a club statement confirming the latest transfer coup, enough concerns materialised to ensure the signing did not progress as planned.

Olympique Lyonnais have put an end to negotiations with Liverpool for the proposed transfer of Nabil Fekir.

Nevertheless, they have already made some impressive additions in time for next season, with Naby Keita and Fabinho joining the Reds from Leipzig and Monaco respectively. The Brazilian superstar moved to Barcelona for a fee of €120m, which, in turn, allowed Liverpool to splash the cash on Fekir this summer.

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

Sky Sports News reporter Wright believes Fekir would be a great addition to the Liverpool FC team given Klopp's style of play.
