Liverpool end all interest in Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir

Liverpool have ended all interest in Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir.

The Liverpool Echo says Liverpool pulled out of a deal to sign Fekir because they didn't want to gamble on his knee issues.

Fekir was heavily linked with a switch to Chelsea towards the end of the transfer window, while there were suggestions that Liverpool had reignited their interest.

But the Merseyside outfit had no intention in following up their previous interest.

The report claims Liverpool were concerned about offering Fekir a five-year deal worth £100,000-a-week amid the constant fear of injury.
