Lyon end talks with Liverpool over Fekir transfer

Olympique Lyonnais have put an end to negotiations with Liverpool for the proposed transfer of Nabil Fekir.

The two clubs had been discussing a deal for the playmaker worth 60m euros (£52.75m) - 55m (£48.35m) plus a maximum of 5m (£4.4m) add-ons.

Lyon said in a brief statement it chose to "end negotiations". Jurgen Klopp, in particular, will be delighted to have secured the signing of Fekir, should the transfer go through.

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. A £53m deal was agreed between the clubs, as were personal terms with the player, and members of the Anfield medical department spent two days in France to oversee what were presumed the final formalities.

A product of Lyon's successful youth academy, the skillful forward has 58 goals in 161 games for Lyon.

Fekir is part of France's squad for the 2018 World Cup and on Saturday French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet claimed he had undergone a Liverpool medical at Les Bleus' Clairefontaine training base.

Liverpool have been linked with the 24-year-old attacking midfielder for some time, and this week, there appeared to have been major developments.

Whether or not it's legitimate is unknown but with Liverpool set to announce Fekir later this afternoon, we will find out very soon.

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