Sky Sports News journalist Dharmesh Sheth has claimed that Liverpool could still sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer.

The Premier League side were on the verge of completing a £60m deal for the France international forward earlier this month.

However, Fekir who was also reported to have chosen his squad number at Anfield, is said to have failed a medical test at Melwood training ground.

The 24-year-old, who is now in Russia with France national team for the 2018 World Cup campaign, has 14 caps for the Blues since 2015.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth claimed that a deal for Fekir could be revived ahead of the 2018-19 season.

“I wouldn’t be surprised if there is a chance this Fekir deal can be revived,” Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.”

“He won’t go for anyone else until he is certain this guy is exactly what he wants him to be and the fitness he wants him to be.”

The Lyon playmaker scored 23 goals and nine assists in all competitions last season and will hope to prove his detractors wrong in this summer’s World Cup.
