Nabil Fekir’s move to Liverpool could still be back on, according to reports.
A story in the Sunday Mirror claims that Liverpool and Lyon are working on a compromise, in the knowledge that Fekir is desperate for the deal to go through.
Fekir had all but completed a move to Anfield last month, only to be scuppered by a medical that revealed knee problems. A transfer fee and contract had already been agreed, and there are rumours that Fekir had even filmed his signing video.
The report claims that talks have recommenced between the two clubs, with Manchester United starting to sniff around the situation. The thought is that a deal could be agreed for when Fekir returns home from the World Cup.
Lyon president Jean-Michael Aulas has previously said that a deal can only be done according to the original terms, with Liverpool wanting to restructure in light of the issues discovered in the medical. It is not known whether Aulas has relaxed that stance.
