Liverpool target Xherdan Shaqiri after Nabil Fekir deal falls through

Roma's French midfielder Maxime Gonalons Roma's Italian forward Mirko Antonucci and Roma's Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson react at the end of the UEFA Champions League semi-final

Fekir would have been an outstanding signing for Liverpool, and would have added a certain level of potency to their already risky front-line.

But it is believed that Liverpool's attempt to renegotiate the transfer fee at the eleventh hour has prompted Lyon to end Fekir's dream.

According to the paper, as the issue is to do with Fekir's medical history, there is a confidentiality issue preventing certain details being made public.

"But mainly I am happy here with the national team, living a boyhood dream and working very hard to win the World Cup".

The Ligue 1 club recently broke off transfer negotiations with Liverpool regarding the transfer of Fekir, and the Reds have prioritised Shaqiri as the flawless alternative.

Real Madrid Set To Complete Signing Of Alisson Becker For €70 Million

Last week, talk began of Liverpool's interest in wantaway Stoke City man Xherdan Shaqiri, with a £12m release clause said to exist in his contract that can be activated if the club was relegated.

Jürgen Klopp has already spent big this summer, splashing out close to £100 million on midfield duo Fabinho and Naby Keita, but it is obvious that the German is keen to bolster his ranks further still.

Liverpool wouldn't be willing to pay much beyond that figure but a move could happen if Stoke are willing to sell.

Instead, Liverpool will cool their transfer activity whilst the World Cup group stage games take place and they'll reassess their options and look to do more deals later on in the window.
