Liverpool FC made no attempt to try and resurrect a deal to try and sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer after it fell through, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Reds did not try and renegotiate with Lyon after their deal to bring the 24-year-old attacking midfielder to Anfield collapsed over the weekend.

Liverpool FC were thought to be closing in on a deal to bring the attacker to Anfield this summer after having been strongly linked with a move for Fekir in recent months.

However, the deal fell through on Friday even though a fee and personal terms had been agreed.

The same article, though, now claims that Liverpool FC made no attempt to try and resurrect the transfer after it fell through.

It leaves Jurgen Klopp needing to look elsewhere for attacking reinforcements as he bids to bolster his options at Anfield ahead of next season.

The Reds are thought to be on the lookout for attacking reinforcements as they look to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho following his transfer to FC Barcelona back in the January transfer window.
