Italian clubs could still be in for Nabil Fekir after Olympique Lyonnais released a statement terminating negotiations with Liverpool.
The French trequartista had a medical with Liverpool ahead of the World Cup with a transfer expected imminently.
However, in a sensational move, Lyon released a note on their official website this evening announcing talks with Liverpool had been “definitively terminated at 20.00.”
The statement also made clear they were open to “other proposals consistent with the interests of both Nabil and Lyon from ambitious clubs.”
Juventus, Napoli, Roma and Inter could well show interest in Fekir, who contributed 23 goals and eight assists in 40 competitive matches this season.
According to RMC Sport, Liverpool tried to lower the agreed €60m fee after the player – who turns 25 next month – had his medical.
