'The story isn't over' - Fekir's agent gives Liverpool hope after failed transfer

'The story isn't over' - Fekir's agent gives Liverpool hope after failed transfer

Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea may be on alert regarding Nabil Fekir, as reported by The Sun, but the Lyon star's agent's latest comments - as reported by Metro - suggest that the France worldwide could still end up at Liverpool.

The Reds were on the verge of completing a deal to sign Fekir earlier this month but the proposed transfer fell through at the final hour.

However, the same report now says that Liverpool FC could still revive their interest in signing Fekir this summer after his involvement at the World Cup in Russian Federation with France.

And speaking at a press conference on Tuesday morning the attacking midfielder claimed he had no issues with his knee, despite having torn his ACL in 2015 and suffering two further injuries afterwards.

The French global has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield in recent months following an impressive campaign that saw the 24-year-old provide 23 goals and 8 assists for Lyon last season and it looked like a switch to Merseyside was on the cards.




Just before the World Cup kicked off, the French club Lyon announced on their official Twitter page that negotiations over a deal for Fekir to move to the Reds had ended.

'My knee is super-good.

The player could easily be fed up with Liverpool Football Club. But I honestly feel like before my injury, ' said Fekir.

Fekir, who met with Jean-Michel Aula yesterday, said: "It was great to see Jean-Michel Aulas yesterday at Istra but we did not at all discuss my situation at Lyon".

He added: "I am with the France team, I am happy to be here. This is not the end of the story".
