Liverpool fans react after Lyon manager’s comments on Nabil Fekir

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.

Reports had suggested that the France international was closing in on a £53m move to Anfield, but Fekir’s side halted talks and called off the deal.

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.
