Nabil Fekir's move to Liverpool collapses as Lyon call off negotiations

Liverpool transfer news Gianluigi Donnarumma has been linked with a move to Anfield

The France global was expected to join Jurgen Klopp's side before Les Bleus left for the World Cup, but OL have now ended talks and called off the deal.

One of the most hyped transfer sagas for the past few months is on the verge of reaching its conclusion, as Liverpool have finally managed to strike a deal with Nabil Fekir.

"Fekir, reports the Liverpool-transfer-news-Nabil-Fekir" Sunday ExpressLiverpool-transfer-news-Nabil-Fekir" , had given the switch the green light.

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.

France Football Association president Noel Le Graet had suggested the move was nearly completed - according to reports in France - before Lyon's announcement.

The same report says that transfer fee could total around £52.75m plus a further £4.4m in add-ons as Liverpool FC look to wrap up their second summer signing.

They could easily be seen as saving face with their fans having been prepared to sell their captain, and it could well be Liverpool who have backed out of a deal they are not happy with every aspect of.

Lyon posted messages on social networking site Twitter making it clear that no deal has been agreed with with the Reds over the 24-year-old, who can also operate as a forward.

However, it does not look likely that any deal for Fekir will happen whilst France are in the World Cup, with Fekir being named as part of the 23 man squad that will play in Russian Federation. Liverpool, meanwhile, have already confirmed the signing of Fabinho and will move on to other targets with the goalkeeping department still a matter of concern for the Reds.
