Nabil Fekir reportedly had a medical with Liverpool on Thursday night, but with Lyon having denied claims a deal is done, Reds fans are confused over what is happening.

Yet this high-profile club president has a history of dismissing transfer rumours surrounding his players shortly before they make a move, with the deal that saw Arsenal sign striker Alexandre Lacazette last summer and prime example of Aulas spinning media narrative to suit his own club's agenda.

Fekir has previously made his feelings known to Lyon that he wants to join Liverpool and no one else, so it seemed inevitable that the 24-year-old would be moving to Anfield.

"Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Faulkner to the Liverpool club".

Fekir, who can play in both midfield or attack, is wanted by Liverpool to fill the creative void left by the January departure of Philippe Coutinho to Barcelona.

Mexico said on Monday it will file a complaint with the World Trade Organization over USA tariffs on its steel and aluminum . The ministry said it would open a 350,000 tariff-free quota for imports of pork legs and shoulders from other countries.

The information on the transfer of Nabil Fekir is false.

Fekir has emerged as a priority target for Reds boss Jurgen Klopp, who is looking to build on Liverpool's impressive run to the Champions League final.

Lyon had posted a statement denying that a deal had been agreed but this is believed to be due to the fact that Lyon are publicly listed and must comply with strict regulations that could affect share prices.

"In this era of transfers where the slightest rumour is often presented as a reality, Olympique Lyonnais recalls that only the information disseminated by the club on its website is authentic." .

It's certainly a fascinating situation and it's going to be interesting to see how things progress over the next 24 hours.
