Nabil Fekir: Liverpool target staying at Lyon, say Ligue 1 club

Fekir is preparing to represent France at this month's World Cup

In a statement, Lyon wrote: "Olympique Lyonnais informs that the tripartite negotiations with the Liverpool club and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais has made a decision to put an end to this negotiation".

Liverpool offered no indication as to the nature of the problem, although Fekir sustained a serious injury to his right knee when playing for France three years ago.

The 24-year-old's switch to Merseyside was expected in the coming days with contract talks ongoing between the English club and Lyon.

This comes on the back of FFF's President's comments that Fekir had gone through a medical and the outcome of the same was "positive".

Liverpool had been confident on Thursday of completing a deal for Fekir before the weekend after agreeing a £53m fee with Lyon. Liverpool's medical team had flown out to Paris to conduct a medical at France's national team base in Clairefontaine. "There is something logical, it has already been done for others".

Trump calls for Russian Federation to be readmitted to G7
He said the possibility of a meeting between himself and Trump was discussed "from the very beginning, meaning after Mr. Trump to not levy similar tariffs on Canadian auto exports, an idea being contemplated by the White House.

Fekir scored 18 goals and made eight assists in the 2017/18 Ligue 1 season, but having assessed the player physically Liverpool are now stalling on finalising the transfer.

In a statement released on the French club's official website, Lyon claimed that a breakdown in negotiations have resulted in French worldwide remaining where he is for the time being.

He has won a place in the France World Cup squad for his performances, though Antoine Griezmann is set to be preferred to him in the starting XI for Saturday's final warm-up friendly against the USA.

The French worldwide 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.
