Liverpool fans can be forgiven for getting ahead of themselves with regards to the club’s transfer pursuit of Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir.
All indications were that the 24-year-old was poised to sign on the dotted line, but in the eleventh hour, the deal collapsed.
According to The Mirror, an underlying knee problem was the reason behind the Reds decision to walk away.
However, in a report published by the publication on Tuesday, it is believed that Lyon are working on how to restructure the deal, which was going to cost Liverpool around £53m.

It is unlikely that a transfer will go ahead, but the newspaper states that the door is not completely closed on an agreement being reached.
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp and Fekir himself remain keen on the move, and this latest news has sparked a reaction from the fans.
Some are still hopeful that the 12-capped France international will be a Red by the end of the window, while others are fed up of the merry-go-round.
It better be on because we seems to have nowhere to turn to if we don’t get Fekir.
Seems a PERFECT fit. What can possibly go wrong

It’s not strange at all. It’s negotiation and any sensible person could see it was a possibility.

I hope they just want to watch him in Russia and make a final assessment. Deal in principle subject to a scratch-free world cup? Feels like a VVD
