It was one of the biggest transfer sagas of last year when Lyon forward Nabil Fekir’s protracted move to Liverpool seemed to collapse at the final hour.
Now, the Frenchman’s manager Bruno Genesio has admitted to RMC Sport that his talisman’s failed move to the reigning Champions League holders last summer left the 25-year-old feeling “very frustrated”.

The revelation saw Liverpool fans take to Twitter to reveal their thoughts on the matter and many sympathised with Fekir’s plight at not being able to seal a huge move to the Premier League.
Indeed, some thought a move to Anfield could have been the “making of him” and that the forward – valued at £54m by Transfermarkt – had realised that himself and that a major opportunity had been lost.
A few fans of the Merseyside club suggested that perhaps it wasn’t too late for Fekir’s chances of playing in a Reds shirt and urged the club to perhaps pull the trigger on a deal this summer.
Check out some of the reaction of Liverpool fans below:
gotta feel for this man

Really feel for the lad, imagine being in your dream kit and turning around and saying ” sorry mate it’s off”
You’d be devestated

Poor guy, must’ve been tough! That transfer could have been the making of him and I think he knew that

When a dream move gets snatched away in the last minute it’s bound to mess a player up for sometime, feel for the lad hopefully wherever he ends up in the new season we’ll see the best of him again.
