Lyon Conclusively Rule Out Liverpool Move For Nabil Fekir

Fekir had been one of Liverpool's prime targets this summer as they looked to shore up their midfield and the club were willing to offer up to €55 million, plus another €5m in add-ons, for the France global.

Liverpool's medical staff found a slight issue with the player's right knee - he had suffered a serious ACL injury during the 2015-16 season.

Nabil Fekir had chosen his shirt number for Liverpool before his transfer from Lyon collapsed, according to reports in France.

Whether or not Liverpool will try to negotiate a deal for Fekir after the World Cup remains to be seen but Jurgen Klopp might now be looking for an alternative.

The collapse - for now at least - of Liverpool's move for Fekir will be a setback for Jurgen Klopp.

The Islamic State group claimed responsibility for the attack in a statement posted on its news agency Aamaq website. Khogyani said that four of 16 wounded are children and three of them are in critical condition.

On Saturday, French Football Federation chief Noel Le Graet suggested that Liverpool had attempted to lower Fekir's asking price. "He's in the middle of negotiations and I think it's done", the FFF president said.

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.

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.

Known for his outstanding technical abilities, the 24-year-old will prove to be a fantastic addition to this Liverpool team, who have shown tremendous potential over the past few months. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

More is likely to be known on the matter after France's final World Cup warm-up game against the United States, which the attacking midfielder is set to play a part in.
