Nabil Fekir 'Optimistic' Over Liverpool Move, Has Had Medical Ahead of Switch

BREAKING NEWS Lyon pull plug on Fekir's Liverpool switch

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.

France forward Nabil Fekir's move from Lyon to Champions League runner-up Liverpool fell through on Saturday.

On Saturday it was reported by the Telegraph that Liverpool had hesitated on completing the move due to a hitch in the player's medical, possibly due to a serious knee injury Fekir sustained three years ago.

Known for his outstanding technical abilities, the 24-year-old will prove to be a fantastic addition to this Liverpool team, who have shown tremendous potential over the past few months.

However a statement from Les Gones on Friday, suggesting that media reports claiming a deal had been reached were false, cast doubt on a positive outcome for the Merseysiders.

Finals MVP Durant has 'a lot more to go'
Kevin Durant was named Finals MVP for the second year in a row, the sixth player to accomplish the back-to-back feat. The Warriors buried the Cavaliers in the third quarter, holding them to 13 points on 4-for-17 shooting.

"He passed his medical in Clairefontaine. It's part of the game", he said. That's logical, we've done it for other players.

Finally, he confirmed his wish to see Fekir complete his switch to Anfield before the World Cup begins in Russian Federation next week, something that the Reds are keen for but Lyon have said will not happen. The veteran administrator has no concerns over the saga lingering on into France's World Cup campaign, where they have been drawn alongside Denmark, Peru and Australia in Group C.

"It would be better for him, but he's not perturbed", he said of the No.10.

However, negotiations have now hit a snag and the prospect of another season in Ligue 1 beckons for the highly exciting attacking midfielder, whose 18 goals and eight assists propelled Bruno Genesio's side to third place this term, two points behind runners-up Monaco.
