Nabil Fekir hits out at Liverpool FC transfer speculation
Lyon captain Nabil Fekir discusses his knee injury amid talk of his medical forcing Liverpool FC to lower their offer
Nabil Fekir has insisted that there are no problems with his left knee despite reports that the France star failed a medical at Liverpool FC.
The 18-time English champions were thought to be on a brink of concluding a deal to sign the France international in a big money deal this summer.
Indeed, Fekir was widely reported to have flown to Liverpool FC to undergo a medical at their Melwood training ground ahead of a big money move.
The 24-year-old Lyon captain was even reported to have selected his shirt number at the Merseyside outfit.
However, Liverpool FC got cold feet over a deal for the France attacker due to concerns about a long-standing knee problem.
Some reports have suggested that the Reds were hoping to use concerns about his knee as a ploy to reduce Lyon’s asking price.
However, Fekir has spoken out about his failed move to Liverpool FC for the first time and looked to shed light on his so-called troublesome knee.
“My knee is super-good. We work a lot on it, we reinforce it. But I honestly feel like before my injury,” said Fekir, as quoted by Metro.
Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season to secure a spot in the Champions League for the second successive campaign.
