However, well sourced stories from reporters close to Liverpool suggest the £50m deal to bring Fekir to Anfield is close to being completed, yet Aulas has continued to reject suggestions that he is close to selling his latest big-name star to an English club.

"The information on the transfer of Nabil Faulkner is false".

However, Lyon dismissed the rumours, highlighting gossip amid the transfer window.

Nabil Fekir to Liverpool is in danger of tipping into the realm of "saga".

The 24-year-old was said to be undergoing a medical with the Anfield club on Friday ahead of a proposed £53m transfer - but that deal now appears to be further away than reported.

Manager Jurgen Klopp didn't sign a specific replacement for Philippe Coutinho when he departed for Barcelona in January, but Fekir could be compared to the Brazilian.


Liverpool transfer sagas have become nearly infamous over the last few years and the proposed move for Fekir is starting to follow a similar path, which will be a worry for all Reds fans. "Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Fekir to the Liverpool club".

Liverpool fans can be encouraged somewhat, however, by the fact that Lyon have done exactly this before.

Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas told AFP in a statement that "no deal has been done, and certainly not at the price" of 70 million euro (Rs 558 crore) given by the French sports newspaper L'Equipe.

But now there's a problem, because Lyon have just tweeted saying that the rumours of them agreeing to sell Fekir to Liverpool are false.

Lyon released the following statement on Friday morning through their official social media channels.
