Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas says that Nabil Fekir's transfer to Liverpool is unlikely to be completed before the World Cup finals.

Liverpool are unlikely to complete the signing of long-term target Nabil Fekir from Lyon before the World Cup, according to the Ligue 1 outfit's president.

Jean-Michel Aulas has claimed that talks between the two clubs are "at a standstill".

"The deal is at a standstill, there is no way forward," he told Lyon's official website.

"The deal will certainly not be closed during the World Cup and I don't think there will be any change before the World Cup.

"We haven't set a price tag because we haven't discussed [Fekir's transfer] yet."

Lyon are said to value the playmaker at around £60m.
