When asked by journalist Patrick Chene why Nabil Fekir's move to Liverpool collapsed, the Frenchman's agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, said that his client passed his medical and that "the story isn't over".

Lyon, however, later stated that the move was off, with reports that a failed medical was behind the shock move.

Olympique Lyonnais' Nabil Fekir was just weeks ago on his way to Anfield after terms and a fee was agreed.

'Although Liverpool have been Nabil's priority among a number of offers from ambitious clubs, Lyon are overjoyed that they can count on the presence of their captain, who will be a significant part of their 2018-19 season as they enter the Champions League after finishing in third'.

"Lyon is announcing that the negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the Lyon captain have not succeeded", the statement read. Fekir in the white of Lyon still may not be the case next season. That sort of form attracted interest from Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp identified Fekir as the man to fill the void left by Philippe Coutinho's move to Barcelona in January.

Furthermore, the saga as to whether Lyon will actually play in the Champions League next year is still up in the air. Fekir has the potential to reach the top, though.

One of the concerns for Spurs is there lack of depth of squad, and Fekir provides the quality to add to it.

A revival of interest from Jurgen Klopp and Liverpool may still be on the cards.
