Nabil Fekir deal will not happen for one reason – journalist



Since the failed transfer of Nabil Fekir to Liverpool earlier in this summer transfer window, couple with the recent record-breaking acquisition of Alisson, lots of rumble have been going on regarding a revival of the failed deal.

Reports have now emerged to throw light on the failed transfer and that a revival in the deal will not be beneficial to the Reds, so there won’t be a Fekir at Liverpool next season.

A respected journalist, James Pearce is reported (Daily Star) to have identified the player’s knee injury sustained in 2015 and that a fear of a recurrence is a factor that has hampered the players transfer to the Merseyside club at the early hours of the window.

Pearce said: “Yes, Lyon are crying out for a buyer. It suits them for Liverpool to be repeatedly linked with Fekir.

“For all the talk of potentially restructuring the £53m deal that collapsed last month, I can’t see Liverpool going back in for him.

“Their concerns over his knee were too great. It’s a shame because he would have been an exciting addition.”

It was buttressed by further reports that the player’s knee concern will not be worth the huge sum of investment the club was willing to take if there was a recurrence of the knee problem which might lead to the players breakdown.

So the rumoured frenzy by fans and reports mills of an interest in awakening the failed deal has no basis.

There is no doubt that the player would have been an incredible addition to the squad but sadly the medical personnel were convinced that it was a no go for the club.

The 24-year-old world Cup winner for France will therefore remain in Lyon given that Liveerpool have seemingly improved the midfield position with the capture of Fabinho, Keita and Shaqiri.

So fans can be rest assured that the club is in safe hands and that the manager knows exactly what he is doing by simply throwing the towel on the deal regardless of the pressure.
