Has Linda Pizzuti Henry hinted Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is close?

Liverpool have agreed on a deal with Olympique Lyonnais regarding star forward Nabil Fekir, who could reportedly cost them €65 million.

Lyon issued a statement on Friday to dismiss reports the 24-year-old was on the verge of signing for Jurgen Klopp's Champions League finalists.

Sport claimed on Friday that Liverpool were close to the signing of Fekir from Lyon, with the report also claiming that the France global is one of manager Jurgen Klopp's main targets.

Speaking on Saturday afternoon, French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet even appeared to confirm that a transfer was on course to be completed imminently, as Fekir had passed his medical at France's national football centre.

"I think there are a number of moving parts to this", he said on ESPN FC.




Fekir had his medical at Clairefontaine on Friday afternoon but the transfer stalled after Liverpool sought a second opinion on the midfielder's right knee.

Fekir scored 18 goals and made eight assists in the 2017/18 Ligue 1 season, but having assessed the player physically Liverpool are now stalling on finalising the transfer.

Nevertheless, they have already made some impressive additions in time for next season, with Naby Keita and Fabinho joining the Reds from Leipzig and Monaco respectively. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

But on Saturday, Lyon released a statement saying the negotiations between all three parties had ended, and that Fekir would remain at the club, subject to further transfer developments.

A source told ESPN FC on Thursday that Liverpool were confident about securing a €60 million deal for the France global, despite earlier comments from Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas that no transfer would be concluded before the World Cup.
