  • Lyon issue official statement on Liverpool's transfer move for Nabil Fekir

Leaked photos emerged of the Lyon playmaker in a Liverpool kit and there were rumours that he had even conducted an interview with LFCTV.

Lyon then subsequently issued a public statement claiming they had withdrawn from all negotiations with the Reds.

"Olympique Lyonnais confirms that the tri-party negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais have made a decision to put an end to these negotiations at 20:00 [CET] on Saturday night", a club statement read.

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

The player had made it clear to his club that he wanted to depart, specifically to Liverpool.

Liverpool have already signed Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m this summer.

Lyon categorically denied that Jurgen Klopp's side would be signing their attacking midfielder.

Lyon have confirmed Nabil Fekir will stay at the club next season and will not join Liverpool.

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.

A five-year-deal with the Anfield club worth £140,000 per week had been agreed but confusion swiftly followed. The Brazilian superstar moved to Barcelona for a fee of €120m, which, in turn, allowed Liverpool to splash the cash on Fekir this summer.

The 24-year-old Fekir reportedly had his medical with a view to a move for 65 million euros ($77 million), plus eventual bonuses.

The latest development in the on-off transfer saga came after FFF chief Noel Le Graet had earlier said: "Nabil Fekir is in the process of being transferred".
