France attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir came close to joining Liverpool in 2018 before the move fell through and he has since left Lyon for Real Betis.
What do you think the real reason was for Fekir’s Liverpool transfer collapsing at such an advanced stage?https://t.co/27D0LMBB9d

According to L’Equipe, Fekir said that he had gone for a medical check-up at France’s training base in Clairefontaine and no concerns were raised about his knee, adding that he had undergone a medical at Liverpool before the move collapsed.
These Reds fans on Twitter feel that the club ultimately made the right decision not to sign the France international:
A Brazilian god called Allison. We wouldn't have signed both of them. Got the right player.

We needed the money instead to buy Allisson Becker

Who cares really and look where he’s ended up

Who cares? He would be an expensive bench warmer so we did the right thing. @LFC
