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

The two sides had been in talks over a deal for the playmaker worth £52.75m plus a maximum of £4.4m in add-ons but he will be staying with the Ligue 1 club.

"Olympique Lyonnais confirms that the tri-party negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnaise have made a decision to put an end to the negotiations at 20:00 [CET] on Saturday night".

He has won a place in the France World Cup squad for his performances, though Antoine Griezmann is set to be preferred to him in the starting XI for Saturday's final warm-up friendly against the USA.

Lyon announce that they have ended negotiations with Liverpool over Nabil Fekir.

However, it would appear Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is likely to sell Fekir after the World Cup.

In more than half of all deaths in 27 states , the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives. The radio announcer, she said , encouraged listeners to look for warning signs in friends, neighbors, co-workers.

"Olympique Lyonnais informs that the tripartite negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais has chose to put an end to this negotiation", read a statement on the club's official website. Jurgen Klopp, in particular, will be delighted to have secured the signing of Fekir, should the transfer go through.

Liverpool were keen to get a deal for Fekir over the line before the World Cup in Russian Federation, where he will be in the France squad, but that will not happen now and it remains to be seen whether this deal is revisited and revived later in the summer.

Le Graet offered a positive comment for fans fearful that the 24-year-old may not complete his switch to Anfield.

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

Consequently, the Reds were hoping to negotiate a lower fee which prompted Lyon to pull the plug on any potential deal. That's logical, we've done it for other players.
