Loads of Liverpool fans have been reacting to a tweet from Dominic King, who claimed any potential deal for Nabil Fekir is dead and buried.
Liverpool’s failed summer move for Lyon captain Fekir was one of the more bizarre transfer sagas of recent years, as the move was quite literally on the brink of completion just before the World Cup.
Concerns grew about the player’s knee after the medical though, and the Reds showed no signs of returning for the World Cup winner after the tournament in Russia.
Has Alisson been Liverpool’s most important signing of the season? Check out the video below to find out why Jurgen Klopp thinks so…
Plenty of fans have remained hopeful about a potential deal in January, but Daily Mail reporter King says any reports of another deal for Fekir are “absolute garbage”.
Some bookmakers are offering prices on Nabil Fekir joining Liverpool and suggesting “odds are tumbling”. It’s absolute garbage.
Let’s be clear for one last time – Nabil Fekir is not a Liverpool target. He will not be a target again. Liverpool won’t say anyone this month ?

The 25 year-old Lyon superstar has scored nine times and added four assists this season, and there’s no question his creativity and goal threat would make the Reds even more electric going forward.
Despite King’s tweet, loads of fans are pointing to the deals for Virgil van Dijk and Naby Keita, both of which were thought to be dead in the water before eventually coming through.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where it seems the Anfield faithful aren’t giving up on this one…
You lot said the same about Alisson, VVD, Keita… ??? Am I missing someone else?

If you read carefully, it says ‘not a liverpool target, he will not be a target again’ which means its already done deal so he cant be a target when hes already ours #DoneDeal thats why pearcy came in the ?
