  • Lyon End Negotiations With Liverpool For France Star Fekir

The two sides had been in talks over a deal for the playmaker worth £52.75m plus a maximum of £4.4m in add-ons but he will be staying with the Ligue 1 club.

With the World Cup so close, the Reds do have a race against time to get a deal done before the competition in Russian Federation kick offs.

France forward Nabil Fekir's move from Lyon to Champions League runner-up Liverpool fell through on Saturday.

"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.

Fekir had undergone a medical with Liverpool staff in Paris and agreed terms on a five-year-deal.

In a statement released on the French club's official website, Lyon claimed that a breakdown in negotiations have resulted in French global remaining where he is for the time being.

Fekir, 24, had been one of Reds boss Jurgen Klopp's prime summer targets. 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.

Liverpool was hoping to add Fekir to their off-season signings of Monaco midfielder Fabinho and RB Leipzig's Naby Keita. The Brazilian superstar moved to Barcelona for a fee of €120m, which, in turn, allowed Liverpool to splash the cash on Fekir this summer.

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.

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

Earlier this morning, Lyon released a statement denying that Nabil Fekir was close to joining Liverpool. "There is something logical, it has already been done for others".
