While Liverpool's interest is obvious, the club has responded to the above rumour by denying that Fekir is set for a medical.
"But I will be clear, we will go with Nabil to Liverpool or elsewhere when there is an agreement with Lyon and if [owner] Jean-Michel Aulas gives the green light".
One mistake on a sufficiently grand stage can be enough to tarnish a career forever and while most do sympathize with the 24-year-old Liverpool man Loris Karius, the cost of messing up in such a high-profile matchup could well be too much to see him line out for the Reds again next season.
There were even claims from France on Saturday night that Fekir was due to arrive on Merseyside on Sunday for a medical - claims which were since dismissed.

The Super Eagles lost 2-1 to England in a friendly at Wembley on Saturday. Kane said: "It was a good win against a tough side". And England started the match impressively.
Even still, it appears that manager Jurgen Klopp is going for "overkill", as French global Fekir looks set for an Anfield move this transfer window, just a medical to go.
"I do not have an appointment with the leaders of Liverpool".
Liverpool, meanwhile, are understandably keen to secure a deal before the World Cup for the versatile attacker, with Jurgen Klopp aiming to get business done early. "We are perfectly serene", he explained.

The Lyon president is also believes more clubs could join the race for Fekir should he manage to impress in Russian Federation and he could maximise his profits if the player is eventually sold this summer.
