BREAKING NEWS: Lyon deny Fekir is close to Liverpool move
Lyon have categorically denied reports that Liverpool are close to agreeing a deal to sign star forward Nabil Fekir.
Fekir has emerged as a priority target for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, who is looking to build on Liverpool's impressive run to the Champions League final.
Liverpool have been proactive in the transfer market already, with Naby Keita set to join from RB Leipzig having agreed a deal last year, while Fabinho – a regular opponent of Fekir in Ligue 1 with Monaco – has also signed.
Numerous forwards have been linked with a move to Anfield, but reports of an agreement with Lyon for the transfer of Fekir began to intensify on Thursday, with some even suggesting an announcement was expected within 24 hours.
