Lyon have blasted the ‘false’ reports ‘disseminated by many media’ regarding Nabil Fekir’s move to Liverpool.
It was reported by French newspaper L’Equipe on Thursday evening that Liverpool had agreed a fee with the Ligue Un club.
Jurgen Klopp was thought to have played a key role in the deal, having spoken to Fekir personally.
But Lyon themselves have shot down the ‘false information’ circulating regarding their player.
‘The information on the transfer of Nabil Fekir is false,’ they tweeted. ‘Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Fekir to Liverpool.
‘In this period of transfers where the slightest rumour is often presented as a reality, Olympique Lyonnais reminds that only the information disseminated by the club on its website is authentic.’
It’s Virgil van Dijk all over again…
