Huge: Nabil Fekir Speaks on Transfer after Liverpool Medical

Justin GreeneAug 08, 2018

After finding knee-related issues, Liverpool cheekily tried to bargain upon the negotiated fee with Lyon leading to the French giants pulling out of a deal.

Nabil Fekir will not feature for Lyon against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this evening as talk of a move to London rumbles on.

Earlier in the summer, Liverpool were favourites to land the Lyon captain but ran into trouble.

And things could develop quickly given the Premier League transfer window is due to close on 9th August.

As you can see, I am in Lyon. "We live well and I hope that OL will have a very good season".

"He's quite a good footballer - probably as good as the goalie he is", Klopp told reporters after the match, according to FourFourTwo. So I still feel I need a proper season of playing. We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.It's a bit like the French team: there is a mix between young and old, with more experienced players than others.

"Even this past season I didn't play as much as I would have liked to because of the injuries".

The French global was linked with a number of Europe's biggest clubs following a spectacular season with Lyon that saw him rack up 24 goals and 9 assists across all competitions last term.

Chelsea, who defeated Lyon on penalties in an International Champions Cup meeting on Tuesday, have been linked with a move for the 25-year-old.

Fekir was thought to be on the brink of a £57m move to Liverpool FC from Lyon as the Reds looked to improve their attacking options following Philippe Coutinho's exit in January.
