Lyon forward Nabil Fekir insists his knee is ‘super good’ after his move to Liverpool broke down over a disagreement about his long-term fitness.
The Frenchman was expected to complete a £53m move to Anfield but the Reds were concerned about Fekir’s knee during his medical in Paris.
Though Fekir technically passed his medical, Liverpool wanted to renegotiate a reduced fee with Lyon that acknowledged the supposed weakness in his knee after his ACL reconstruction.
However, Fekir insists he’s back to his previous level after knee surgery and refused to deny Liverpool wanted to agree a lower fee in light of his medical.
‘My knee is super-good. We work a lot on it, we reinforce it. But I honestly feel like before my injury,’ said Fekir.
Asked whether Liverpool trying to lower a fee for him after his medical, Fekir smirked and said: ‘You know I am here with France, I am happy, and I am not here to discuss my personal situation. We will see about all that later’.
Fekir’s agent last night revived the chance of him moving to Liverpool by claiming his move to Anfield is ‘not over’.
‘He didn’t sign because um… it is not over! This is not the end of the story,’ said Jean-Pierre Bernes.
