Nabil Fekir was on the verge of joining Liverpool this summer.

Lyon captain Nabil Fekir says his failed summer transfer to Liverpool is “ancient history”.

The Frenchman was set to move to Anfield this summer, with personal terms having been agreed with the Premier League club, only for the move to fall through at the 11th hour.

Fekir, who went on to win the World Cup with France in July, said: “The missed transfer to Liverpool is totally digested.

“These are things that happen. It’s like that. We must advance. It’s ancient history.

Pressed on why the move collapsed, Fekir said: “I heard several things. The real reason is that they (Liverpool) only know it.”

Ademola Lookman was an instant hit on loan with the German team last season.

RB Leipzig have not given up hope of signing Everton attacker Ademola Lookman before the transfer window slams shut in the Bundesliga on August 31, according to The Mirror.

The 20-year-old, who enjoyed a glittering loan stint with the Bulls last season – scoring five goals in 11 matches – returned to the Toffees during pre-season but has yet to force his way into Marco Silva’s first-team plans.

So far, RB Leipzig have had four offers knocked back by Everton for Lookman, who is apparently a man the Premier League outfit want to keep at Goodison Park.

Lookman arrived on Merseyside in January 2017 from Charlton and despite a bright start, including a debut goal over Manchester City, his chances have since been limited.
