Lyon sent every Liverpool fan into overdrive this morning by claiming that last night’s Done Deal news was false.
But even the French club’s own fans don’t believe Jean-Michel Aulas, having experienced his lies before regarding Alexandre Lacazette not moving to Arsenal.
Below, you’ll see their denial tweet and some replies we collated and translated from Lyon supporters.
Even they’re not falling for it…
Les informations sur le transfert de Nabil Fekir sont fausses.
L’Olympique Lyonnais dément catégoriquement les fausses informations diffusées par de nombreux médias au sujet du transfert de Nabil Fekir au club de Liverpool. pic.twitter.com/3Qa6zekRFo

It’s because the IPO, the club or its representatives cannot make a denial by bluffing, the day before
They had made the same story with Lacazette for Arsenal and the results # we know it
I know you’re going to announce the transfer in a few hours MDR
In 2h “Thanks Nabil for everything. Good continuation to Liverpool “…
If it is to announce the transfer tomorrow we will find you
In 1 weeks it’s going to tweet big “Thanks Nabil for everything you’ve brought to the formidable institution” go fuck yourself
If you announce the transfer within 2 days it’s going to be very bad.
You are aware that if it is false you are going to take hyper expensive, aulas who lie we wont but the official account!
Fans should trust the news James Pearce and Paul Joyce tweeted last night, although our hoped for a Friday announcement are now looking increasingly slim.
The Guardian still claim a deal will go through today, despite Lyon’s statement.
We’ll just sit tight and wait!
Dave Maddock in the Mirror has explained why Aulas is doing what he’s doing, too:
Lyon obliged as publicly listed company to ensure no false information is disseminated until contracts are signed, especially relating to potential fees. Their denial of "false information" relates to wild suggestions of price in French media, and fact deal is not yet completed
