Liverpool confirm that no Fekir deal has been agreed

Liverpool fans were buzzing when rumours emerged that Nabil Fekir had flown to Merseyside this week.

Liverpool are reportedly close to wrapping up the signing of Nabil Fekir from French giants Lyon.

He went further and said that president Jean-Michel Aulas want to wait until after the World Cup finals, which might increase the fee they can charge Liverpool.

Bernes told French daily Le Progres: "I have not gone to Marseille, I am with my family, but I will be clear, we will go with Nabil to Liverpool or elsewhere only when there is an agreement with Lyon and if Jean-Michel Aulas gives me the green light".

"This transfer window could be long". We could do with a player like Fekir to help link our midfield and attack, which were disjointed last term, but it doesn't look like he'll be moving to Stamford Bridge, despite our reported interest.

That fee is believed to be in the region of £60m, with Liverpool believed to have offered a structured deal that has not tempted Lyon to finalise the transfer before Fekir flies to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

"Liverpool's interest exists, but for the moment nothing is done and other clubs could come in".

Liverpool have already completed one major signing this summer, with Fabinho announced a week ago as having signed for the Reds while Naby Keïta is also set to join the club on July 1st.

While few transfers are ever straightforward and without delays, most reports over the last few weeks have suggested Fekir to Liverpool is a matter of when, not if.
