Nabil Fekir to Liverpool: 'He's passed his medical... I think it's done'

Lyon issue official statement on Liverpool's transfer move for Nabil Fekir

However, concerns stemming from a serious knee injury Fekir had suffered while playing for France three years ago had put the brakes on the deal.

The 24-year-old's switch to Merseyside was expected in the coming days with contract talks ongoing between the English club and Lyon.

In fact, latest reports from RMC Sport claim that the French global has already passed his medical in France, and Liverpool could announce his arrival later today.

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". "I spent 15 minutes with him this morning [Saturday], and he's anxious by the France team".

In a statement, Lyon said: "The three-way negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil were not successful and Olympique Lyonnais chose to end the negotiations at 20:00 (UTC)". Liverpool's medical team had flown out to Paris to conduct a medical at France's national team base in Clairefontaine. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

Liverpool were hoping to finalise a deal with Fekir before France departed for the World Cup, which begins in Russian Federation next week.

Liverpool look to have missed out on key transfer target Nabil Fekir, with his side Lyon claiming they have ended discussions.

"The midfielder was due to complete a medical at France's Clairefontaine training complex this morning, before his national team depart for Lyon to prepare for their final World Cup preparation game, against the United States of America".

"It would be better for him, but he's not perturbed", he said of the No.10.

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