Lyon calls "fake news" on Fekir move to Liverpool

Lyon calls

All of those reports said that a signing had been agreed, and that Fekir would likely complete a medical today before officially being announced as a Liverpool player prior to flying to Russian Federation for the World Cup.

All signs suggest Liverpool are on the brink of their third signing this summer, but it's hard to envision the move becoming official as long as Lyon say nothing is set in stone.

Liverpool's transfer window was going to well but signing Fekir could now end up getting quite complicated.

The Reds are reportedly eager to get a deal over the line before Fekir, 24, travels to Russian Federation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France, and RMC reported a medical took place Thursday night (h/t Liverpool Echo).

Klopp is looking to finally fill the void left behind by Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona in January and Fekir caught the eye after providing 23 goals and 8 assists last season.

Liverpool transfer sagas have become nearly infamous over the last few years and the proposed move for Fekir is starting to follow a similar path, which will be a worry for all Reds fans.

An official club statement published on Twitter has denied the rumours, claiming the information of Fekir's transfer is false.

Liverpool fans can be encouraged somewhat, however, by the fact that Lyon have done exactly this before.

"In this era of transfers where the slightest rumour is often presented as a reality, Olympique Lyonnais recalls that only the information disseminated by the club on its website is authentic." .

A deal in principal may have been agreed but the two clubs could still be haggling over the minor details and Lyon have released their statement to put the pressure on Liverpool to meet their demands.
