"Olympique Lyonnais informs that the negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and that Olympique Lyonnais has made a decision to put an end to negotiations tonight at 20:00", a statement read.

However, negotiations have now hit a snag and the prospect of another season in Ligue 1 beckons for the highly exciting attacking midfielder, whose 18 goals and eight assists propelled Bruno Genesio's side to third place this term, two points behind runners-up Monaco.

However, Lyon said on Saturday that talks about the potential transfer of their captain "had not succeeded".

"Although Liverpool has been the priority of a possible transfer of Nabil". He came on in the second half of that game, which was at Lyon's home ground, to a great reception from the home fans.

Lyon have announced that they have ended negotiations with Liverpool over the sale of Nabil Fekir and the attacker will now remain at the French club.

The collapse - for now at least - of Liverpool's move for Fekir will be a setback for Jurgen Klopp.

Sport is reporting that the Reds are on the verge of being able to conclude talks with Lyon about the transfer of the 24-year-old France global, who has been strongly linked with a move to Anfield all summer.

Liverpool are on the verge of signing Nabil Fekir according to French Football Federation president Noel Le Graet, who claims the Lyon star has passed a medical while on location at France's pre-World Cup training camp.

Speculation is swirling about why the deal has not been rubber-stamped.

Lyon have claimed Nabil Fekir's move to Liverpool is off. "There is something logical, it has already been done for others".
