Nabil Fekir's move to Liverpool appears to be off... for now

Liverpool appeared to be on the verge of signing Nabil Fekir according to French Football Federation president Noël Le Graët, who claimed the Olympique Lyon star passed a medical while on location at France's pre-World Cup training camp.

France Football Association president Noel Le Graet had suggested the move was nearly completed - according to reports in France - before Lyon's announcement.

It's being speculated that Liverpool had concerns after Fekir's medical and tried to ask for a lower price, but Lyon refused. The Olympique Lyonnais forward has been linked with a move to Merseyside for a long time now and looks all set to embark on a new journey as he makes the highly anticipated move this week.

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

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".

"Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Fekir to Liverpool".

Nabil Fekir is soon to be a Red!

Fekir had a fine season, scoring 18 league goals as Lyon finished third to qualify for the Champions League playoffs.

However, Lyon said on Saturday that talks about the potential transfer of their captain "had not succeeded".

With Nabil Fekir-to-Liverpool all but done, Julien Laurens describes what kind of player he is and where he'd be best suited in Jurgen Klopp's XI.

Klopp saw the gifted 24-year-old slotting into the role vacated by Philippe Coutinho - who joined Barcelona in January - and adding to the threat of Liverpool's "Big Three" of Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane. And Liverpool fans would have been watching him very closely.
