Has Linda Pizzuti Henry hinted Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is close?

TWITTER

Nabil Fekir is "optimistic" he will be able to complete a move from Lyon to Liverpool this summer and has had his medical ahead of the transfer, according to President of the French Football Federation Noel Le Graet.

The end result looks certain to be Fekir moving to Liverpool, but Aulas is clearly keen to make sure he controls the timing of that announcement.

With the World Cup now on the horizon, a cooling-off period may well yet see Lyon and Liverpool re-open discussions-unless all is not as it seems with Lyon's statement.

"Although Liverpool have been Nabil's priority among a number of offers from ambitious clubs, Lyon are overjoyed that they can count on the presence of their captain, who will be a significant part of their 2018-19 season as they enter the Champions League after finishing in third". He came on in the second half of that game, which was at Lyon's home ground, to a great reception from the home fans.

Liverpool have already signed Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for £39m signing, while Naby Keita is joining from RB Leipzig in a deal worth £52.75m.

Yesterday, the Ligue 1 giants released a statement saying Liverpool had failed in their pursuit of Fekir, who would now be staying.

The France global was expected to join Jurgen Klopp's side before Les Bleus left for the World Cup, but OL have now ended talks and called off the deal.

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped.

After Lyon's official Twitter account pushed out messages insisting reports of Fekir's imminent move to Liverpool was "false information", those being told the fine details of the deal have been agreed were left a little confused.

Liverpool are concerned after Fekir had surgery on his right knee. That's logical, we've done it for other players.
