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.

The ceasefire from the Afghan government's side is applicable from 27th of Ramadan, June 12, to the fifth of Eid-al-Fitr, June 19. Provincial police spokesman Enhamuddin Rahmani confirmed the death toll and said eight Taliban fighters were also killed.
Liverpool were forced to delay announcing the £53m signing of Fekir on Friday before Lyon said yesterday evening they have pulled the plug.
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.
