The truth about ”Melwood Mercedes” spotted near Liverpool training ground.
Nabil fekir in Liverpool?
The 25-year-old France international nearly signed for the Reds last summer and Liverpool fans are still keen on him. Liverpool fans were getting very excited on social media after a supporter claimed he had spotted Nabil Fekir driving into Melwood.
Taking to Twitter,
the fan – who has since deleted the tweet wrote: “Fekir confirmed” alongside a video of a silver Mercedes van in Liverpool. Some Reds supporters took the update with a pinch of salt, while others started tweeting excitedly about the prospect of adding the talented Frenchman to their ranks.
But the transfer collapsed at the eleventh hour amid claims there had been complications over the forward’s medical. Yet as will be the case for the majority. If not all of these transfer whispers, cold water has been poured on such suggestions.
But unfortunately for those Reds supporters, Fekir was certainly not in Liverpool.
Rather than Melwood, it has emerged Fekir is actually in Murcia, Spain.
The Lyon playmaker is with the Ligue 1 club on a warm-weather training camp during the French league’s winter break, with Fekir and team-mates not due to return to action until Saturday.
OL posted pictures of the French international stepping off the plane with the caption: “Good arrival in Murcia for the mid-season break.”
Lyon are currently third in the division, with the 25-year-old scoring seven in 17 so far this season.
Unfortunately for those Reds supporters, Fekir was certainly not in Liverpool. The forward is currently out in Murcia, Spain alongside his Lyon team-mates, where the group are taking winter training. However, Liverpool have plenty of time to rekindle their interest.
