Liverpool's £53m move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir is OFF

Liverpool's £53m move for Lyon's Nabil Fekir is OFF

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.

Fekir was originally due to be confirmed as Liverpool's latest signing on Friday.

"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.

"The information on the transfer of Nabil Fekir is false".

Fekir is due to fly to Russian Federation with France's World Cup squad after their game against the US on Saturday.

"Although Liverpool have been the priority of a possible transfer for Nabil, Olympique Lyonnais is delighted to be able to count on the presence of our captain, who is a leading player for the 2018-19 season when the club will play in the Champions League". He came on in the second half of that game, which was at Lyon's home ground, to a great reception from the home fans.

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.

It was a feature introduced in Battlefield 1 which highlighted battles that haven't had as much attention in history. The battle royale format mode will be called "Royale", although no further details were revealed during conference.

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

The 24-year-old looked odds-on to join the Reds at some point this weekend after holding talks with the Premier League outfit and undergoing a medical.

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.

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped.

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

Liverpool did not attempt, suggest or offer to renegotiate any terms for Fekir.
