Liverpool supporters have been left reeling by the breakdown in talks between the Reds and Lyon over the transfer of star talent Nabil Fekir.
As reported by the BBC, the French club announced that he will not be moving to Anfield and will in fact will be staying with his current side in 2018/19.
His signing had previously thought to be imminent, with Liverpool fans excited about what he could bring to Jurgen Klopp’s starting eleven next season.
Now the German will either have to move onto other talents or risk counting on a late move for the midfielder later on in the transfer window after the World Cup in Russia.
Fekir had a phenomenal season in France last season, scoring 23 goals and providing 9 assists, the kind of direct goal contribution that could have made him a real fan favourite at Anfield.
Supporters took to Twitter to share their thoughts on it all…
Gutted about Fekir, not going to lie. Still think he’ll join us regardless of all the different shite going about on here. He wants to come to us, no way he’s just going to leave that behind. It will be after the World Cup tho imo #LFC

Can’t pretend I know much about #Fabhino or #Fekir but the more I read about Fekir the more I liked. If it’s truly off then pretty gutted. That said, if it’s for the reasons being reported then although a hard decision, it’s a sensible one. #LFC

Disgusted by Liverpool football club right now. Can’t believe they were willing to just spend a couple extra million for fekir. If they’re saving for keeper, I would be PISSED. Fekir is much more important than any keeper, and I’d stick with karius if it cost us fekir #fekir #LFC

Can’t believe the Fekir deal fell through. Not sure where we go from here #LFC
