Earlier today there were rumours circulating that Liverpool were reigniting their interest in French forward Nabil Fekir.

It has now been thrown into question as UK juggernaut The Independent has reported that the Reds are still not interested in bringing the Frenchman to Anfield.

The Independent understand the club’s stance has not changed since the player failed his medical and the deal was declared dead.

Lyon are still wanting around £45million, as per the Indy report, for a player with just 12 months left on his contract it would benefit the Ligue 1 club if they can generate an auction for his services.

Last summer it was reported that the French giants wanted in excess of £60million for their talisman, as per the Daily Mail, but the Reds baulked after a medical exam.

Liverpool’s upcoming friendly with Lyon at the end of next month may pose as an opportunity to iron out the deal (something which a report by Le Progres recently suggested).

The Reds have been linked with a host of attacking talent lately – Federico Chiesa and Nicolas Pepe come to mind – and with so much smoke there surely has to be a fire.
