Lyon welcomed Nabil Fekir back to the fold on Monday as he returns to training from his vacation.
The Frenchman has been heavily linked with Liverpool for much of this summer, but it is getting glaring he won’t be signing for the Merseyside club.
The France international was on the verge of completing a £53million move to Anfield at the start of June, but the deal collapsed, unfortunately.
Officials from Anfield travelled to Paris to conduct a medical for Nabil, but they tried to renegotiate a fee with the French club due to unfavourable results. Since then, no agreement have been reached between both sides.
And while some fans were hoping for a resurrected deal, it is unlikely to happen again as far as this summer is concerned (with just 3 days to go)
Nabil returned to Lyon on Monday for the first time since the World Cup to prepare for the new Ligue 1 campaign.
Of course, this is a clear indication that the French star is not anywhere close to agreeing to a deal with Liverpool.
However, during Liverpool’s pre-season tour, Switzerland international Xherdan Shaqiri has given the fans a lot of assurance that they won’t regret not signing Fekir this summer.
The former Stoke City star has been impressive so far, and he could do a good job as a no.10 this term.
