Liverpool fans react to Nabil Fekir's performance for France vs USA

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.

Lyon indicated on Saturday that captain Nabil Fekir will be staying at the club after breaking off transfer negotiations with Liverpool.

Nabil Fekir has passed his Liverpool medical and will become the Reds' latest signing, according to French FA president Noel Le Graet.

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.

"It's under negotiation, I think it will be done".

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

Fekir is due to fly to Russian Federation with France's World Cup squad after their game against the U.S. on Saturday.

So it looks as though Liverpool won't be signing Nabil Fekir from Lyon after all - at least not before the World Cup.

This is a huge blow for Liverpool, as adding Fekir to a midfield three that now includes both Naby Keita and Fabinho would have made them immediate title contenders.

Lyon posted messages on social networking site Twitter making it clear that no deal has been agreed with with the Reds over the 24-year-old, who can also operate as a forward.

Now we must wait and see if Liverpool and Klopp go back in for a player they have coveted so much. The veteran administrator has no concerns over the saga lingering on into France's World Cup campaign, where they have been drawn alongside Denmark, Peru and Australia in Group C.
