Former Liverpool transfer target Nabil Fekir has belittled suggestions that he didn’t join Liverpool in 2018 because of a knee problem.
Fekir, 26, was on the verge of completing his move to the Merseyside club in the summer transfer window of 2018 for a proposed transfer fee of £53m.
However, the move failed to see the light of the day after the Liverpool medical team showed concerns over the midfielder’s long-term knee problem.
The move had gone forward to such an extent that before the news of the move falling through made it to the social media, there were pictures of Fekir posing in a Liverpool shirt.
Inevitably, then, given the manner in which the move fell through, there were plenty of questions about why exactly did the current European Champions decided against signing Fekir.
