Deal's OFF!! Nabil Fekir to stay put as Lyon make public declaration

Despite a disappointing season, the Sunday Times report that Lemar could become the subject of interest for Liverpool again and Chelsea, and France boss Didier Deschamps wants the Les Bleus worldwide to make a decision before their first game at the World Cup against Australia.

With France scheduled to play the United States tonight and then fly off to Russian Federation ahead of the World Cup, it now appears the 24-year-old will remain at Lyon, at least until after the tournament.

Quickly becoming the transfer saga nobody wanted, Liverpool's pursuit of Lyon's Nabil Fekir appears to be at an end.

Problems with the medical appears to have been a stumbling point, with the Reds reportedly looking to renegotiate the fee after becoming unsure with Fekir's previous knee injury.

Sorry Liverpool fans, Fekir isn't going anywhere... for now, at least.

"Lyon is announcing that the negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded and Lyon have made a decision to put an end to the negotiations tonight at 8 p.m.", the statement read.

Liverpool's protracted deal to sign Nabil Fekir is now in doubt, according to the Telegraph.

This comes on the back of FFF's President's comments that Fekir had gone through a medical and the outcome of the same was "positive".

Fekir enjoyed a career-best season with Lyon in Ligue 1, scoring 18 times in 30 games and supplying a further eight assists.

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. "There is something logical, it has already been done for others".

Now, despite owner Jean-Michel Aulas having previously stated no deal would be done this side of the World Cup, the French outfit have declared the move completely dead.
