  • Nabil Fekir to Liverpool Lyon have denied any transfer agreement with the Reds

"Olympique Lyonnais informs that the negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais has chose to put an end to this negotiation tonight at 20h".

The two clubs had agreed terms for a £48 million transfer, rising in add-ons, but since Friday there has been speculation that Fekir either failed a medical or the Reds wanted a second opinion on a knee injury suffered more than two years ago.

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.

French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet revealed the Lyon star had passed a medical ahead of a statement from the Ligue 1 club that negotiations had ended.

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

"Transfer negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and Olympique Lyonnais have chose to put an end to this negotiation tonight at 8pm", OL said in a statement on their official website.

"He's in the middle of negotiations and I think it's done", he said.

Liverpool could turn their attentions back towards Monaco winger Thomas Lemar, after Lyon pulled out of the deal to take Nabil Fekir to Anfield. 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.

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

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.
