Liverpool unable to secure Fekir deal

TWITTER

The French side issued a statement on Saturday confirming the end of negotiations with the Merseyside club.

When the deal was not made official on Friday, doubts were cast over the player's fitness as he had suffered a serious injury to his right knee previously.

With France being one of the hotly tipped favourites for the tournament, it could be a while before Liverpool and Lyon return to the negotiating table. "I spent 15 minutes with him this morning [Saturday], and he's only concerned with the France team".

Sport reported Fekir was on the brink of signing for the Reds on Friday, before the deal collapsed with Lyon insisting he is not for sale.

What are the options for Britain's future relations with the EU?
But he said: "It is now essential that government makes progress on our long-term customs and other border arrangements". The current proposal would see Britain applying the EU's external tariffs for a limited period beyond December 2020.

"He was looking forward to it because the visit he had was positive".

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.

Meanwhile, Le Graet believes the negotiations were all part and parcel of regular transfer activity.

The French global scored 18 goals whilst chipping in with seven assists, ultimately helping Lyon to secure Champions League qualification as well as giving last season's defending champions AS Monaco a run for their money. But it will have to wait as he has now travelled with the France squad to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

He didn't like his mood or the way he was feeling about staring at another 0-2 hole to the Warriors in the NBA Finals. I don't think there's anything Miami can do, but obviously because he was there and brought them two championships.

Fekir's dribbling ability and clinical edge has won him admirers across Europe, with Jurgen Klopp keen to add to his already impressive set of attacking options.

Liverpool have been off the blocks in a flash in this transfer window, signing Monaco utility man Fabinho alongside Naby Keita, whose deal was agreed upon last season.

The France global looked all set to complete his eagerly-anticipated switch to Merseyside over the weekend before the Ligue 1 outfit pulled the plug on Saturday evening.
