Liverpool set to complete a stunning €65m deal for Nabil Fekir

Lyon say negotiations with Liverpool for the transfer of midfielder Nabil Fekir have ended and he will be staying at the club.

Noel Le Graet, president of the French Football Association, had hinted that a deal would still be finalised before Fekir travelled to the World Cup next week.

Speaking on ESPN FC, Nicol said about Lyon's statement: "So let me quickly dissect that".

It seemed a foregone conclusion that the Olympique Lyonnais attacker would finalise his switch to Anfield ahead of this summer's World Cup, with it believed the 24-year-old had completed his medical on Friday morning ahead of his £53m move.

Translation: "We love you Nabil".

Although Fekir's playing style can be compared to Southampton's Sofiane Boufal, the Frenchman is way more accurate and efficient when it comes to his dribbling and overall ball distribution in the final third.
