The Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have been tearing into the Lyon president, Jean-Michael Aulas as the Nabil Fekir transfer saga rolls on. The Reds had been hoping to get the deal for the French midfielder over the line before the World Cu, but Aulas has prevented that from happening.
Some Liverpool fans have started to take their eyes off of Fekir and start looking at other options for the attacking midfield role at Anfield. Last night saw James Rodriguez play out of his skin for Colombia and for every game that Fekir fails to impress for France it leaves more questions being asked over whether he’s the right man for Liverpool. Things could have been so much different though, had Aulas not pulled the plug on the Fekir to Liverpool deal at the 11th hour.
The fans have now had to endure endless noise from the Lyon president as he continues to talk about Liverpool and Fekir. A number of other clubs have been interested in the Frenchman and a deal could still take place that tears him away from his current club. If this were to happen, the Kopites could be left feeling hard done by, considering how close they got to a deal, however, it would probably be a feeling of relief rather than frustration from Liverpool’s perspective as they could start focusing on other options.
You can see what our local Reds’ have been saying about Aulas here:
Edwards has something on Aulas. Aulas wouldnt be that desperate in the media as he has been lately. Why comment so much if you are in control? I do not know what it is, but we havent heard the last. I like that we dont talk so much and just stay quiet. #LFC https://t.co/gsVrqzTwT6

These Aulas interviews get more & more desperate…who is he trying to convince at this point…if Fekir wants LFC & LFC want him then he'll go to Liverpool it's as simple as that https://t.co/vAegzY4gyy

I do agree mate. We will end up with him. The fee will reflect more what we want to pay than what Aulas wants. Aulas also get much less for lacazette then what he wanted. Eventually he will give in. Players are kings end of the day.

Aulas says that he offered Fekir a contract extension then says that the players are like his children and that he listens to them. Also goes onto say that he will sell to the right club for the right price. Sounds to me like someone rejected that contract extension. #lfc

Aulas seems pretty gutted Fekir can't get a game for France.

The Liverpool fans in the Tavern have made it pretty clear that they’re not best pleased with Aulas as the Lyon man continues to create noise over the future of Fekir.
