The World Cup may be taking everyone's attention at the moment, but clubs around the world are still attempting to tie up deals.

Arsenal are set to be the most active team in the transfer market in the next few days, with Bernd Leno and Sokratis Papastathopoulos both set to sign.

But what about Liverpool?

Jurgen Klopp has done some early transfer business, with Fabinho joining Naby Keita as summer arrivals.

They were also after Nabil Fekir, but it seems a deal for the Frenchman fell through at the eleventh hour.

Lyon and Liverpool were said to have reached an agreement with the 24-year-old over a deal, and Fekir even went through with a medical and picked his shirt number for the Reds.

There were suggestions Liverpool could go back in for him after the World Cup, although it is unclear whether that will actually happen.

But Fekir's agent has since provided an update on the situation, and it makes for very interesting reading.

Speaking on Monday, agent Jean-Pierre Bernes revealed that he could still complete a deal this summer.

"Well he didn’t sign because well… it is not over!" he told LCI, per Goal. "This is not the end of the story."

Very interesting indeed.

If anyone knows what's going on, it's his agent.

And he has suggested that a deal between Fekir and Liverpool remains very much on the cards.

Of course, Liverpool fans were absolutely buzzing over the news.

Just when you thought the longest transfer saga of the summer has reached a close, another update emerges suggesting it shows no signs of ending.

Fekir was doing a press conference with the French national team this morning and, of course, he was asked about the Liverpool speculation.

He admitted he saw Lyon's president last yesterday, but did not discuss a move away.

"It was great to see Jean-Michel Aulas yesterday at Istra (base camp) but we did not at all discuss my situation at Lyon," he said.

And he also discussed his injured knee, which reports suggest was the reason why the deal fell through.

"My knee is super-good," he added. "We work a lot on it, we reinforce it. But I honestly feel like before my injury."

But he remained coy when asked about a move to Liverpool.

"You know I am here with France, I am happy, and I am not here to discuss my personal situation. We will see about all that later," he said.

It seems this transfer saga is still on-going. Watch this space.
