No new Fekir talks for Liverpool

Despite the reports from a few days ago Liverpool had restarted negotiations to sign Lyon’s Nabil Fekir, Paul Joyce of The Times says no such thing has happened.

There has been no contact whatsoever between the two clubs since the £52.8 million deal that had already been agreed fell through on medical grounds. Joyce states that the facts of the matter are that the deal was in place and that Liverpool’s medical staff flew to France the following day to conduct the usual pre-transfer medical on the player, after which the Merseysiders pulled out of the deal.

It took Lyon around 36 hours to come out with a statement of their own that the deal was dropped. Even though Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had hoped the World Cup would increase Fekir’s market value, his appearances for France at the tournament have so far been too short to achieve such an effect.

Whether the deal is resurrected at some point during the summer remains to be seen, but for now it remains on the shelf.
