Fekir camp scrambling to keep Liverpool transfer deal alive


The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we'll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe.

Fekir was close to becoming the Reds' third signing of the summer after they agreed a £48.4 million fee with their Ligue 1 counterparts earlier this month.

Olympique Lyon ace Nabil Fekir is adamant his knee is as good as ever after a mooted failed medical saw a move to Liverpool fall through.

The agent that represents Nabil Fekir says his client could still complete a transfer to Liverpool after the World Cup despite reports to the contrary.

Fekir is now on global duty with the French national team so any movement on a possible transfer is likely to come after France return home from the World Cup.

Lyon had released a statement earlier this month claiming they have ended all negotiations with Liverpool, however it remains to be seen whether a deal will be completed after the conclusion of the World Cup in Russian Federation, where Fekir is part of France's squad. "This is not the end of the story", said Bernes on French TV channel LCI on Monday night. It is thought a decision on Fekir's future will be made when France's World Cup campaign concludes. "We will see about all that later". We work a lot on it, we reinforce it.

And upon revealing that talks with Liverpool had broken down, Lyon underlined their intentions to keep the France worldwide. I know the MRIs don't look great but I feel fantastic.

He added: "I am with the France team, I am happy to be here".
