The saga of Nabil Fekir nearly signing for Liverpool continues…
It does seem a long time ago now, but during the summer transfer window there were quite a few days where Nabil Fekir’s unveiling as a Liverpool player was imminent.
In the end, Fekir did remain at Lyon with controversy over the reasons for the failed move. Some have suggested it was down to a chronic knee problem. Others have claimed Liverpool and Lyon could not agree a fee.
What is certain though is that Fekir came so close to signing for Liverpool that he underwent a medical and had even produced his first interview for the club’s in-house TV channel.
In recent hours, Liverpool fans have got rather excited about Fekir again as some of their eagle eyed fans have done some serious digging on the world wide web.
Why is the Nabil Fekir video still on Liverpool’s YouTube channel?
The first discovery made was that Nabil Fekir’s unveiling video is still effectively on YouTube.
There is a private video in Liverpool’s “Summer Signing” playlist on the official Liverpool channel.
This is almost certainly the Nabil Fekir announcement video.
Nabil Fekir unveiling video starts doing the rounds
Somewhat incredibly, the video of Nabil Fekir signing for Liverpool is now doing the rounds on social media.
A still has been leaked of Fekir saying: “I’m really happy to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size.”
There are also fans who claim to have seen Nabil Fekir’s first interview with Liverpool. And, others threatening to release the clip in the coming hours on social media.
Liverpool fans get excited about Nabil Fekir again
Incredibly, there has been speculation amongst Liverpool fans that the fact the video hasn’t been deleted means the Merseyside giants will try to sign Fekir again in January.
Despite their fine start to the campaign, some Liverpool supporters feel they do not have enough creativity in midfield.
Fekir remains a key player for Lyon and as well as winning the World Cup this past summer, also scored for his club in a 2-1 win at Manchester City.
We will sign Fekir in January. Remember the deal collapsed like Van Dijk last season (different reasons ik), and there was no rumours at all until December when he was signed all of a sudden.
The way we conducted for Van Dijk is the reason why I have hope for Fekir. #LFC

Nabil Fékir's agent Jean-Pierre Bernes in the summer on French TV on why his client didn't sign for Liverpool: "Um he didn't sign because um… it is not over! This is not the end of the story." Let’s hope it isn’t 🙏🏼😞 pic.twitter.com/HA2RLJQtU2

Well Today's LFC conspiracy is that they have not deleted the 'First interview' video for for Nabil Fekir.
Surely if he isnt coming, they could have easily deleted the video. Literally 'A Click Away' to delete it.

I’m trying my best not to keep tweeting about Fekir but do you understand how much better he’d make us? Plus the longe range screamers he possesses on the regs. Please go back for him. #LFC 😭
