Liverpool Transfer News: Nabil Fekir Throws future with Lyon in Doubts

Olympique Lyon - UEFA Europa League Nabil Fekir

With the final conclusion of the Premier League already made, clubs will be linked to as many player in Europe as they can get. Liverpool being part of that  are currently being linked to their long-term transfer target Nabil Fekir, who plays for Ligue 1 club, Olympique Lyonnais.

The Ligue 1 playmaker has already thrown doubts in his future with Lyon next season claiming he can move on from the club whenever he feels like it.

The 24-year-old has been outstanding for his club this season as he has bagged 23 goals and eight assists this season winning 15 Man of the Match, and helping the Ligue 1 giants in the third position in their League securing a spot in the Champions League next season.

Despite rumours all over the media about the French International already met with Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp, Fekir told L’Equipe via the Reds official website:

“The president told me, like he told everyone else when they signed their contracts, that we have the possibility to talk whenever I want to leave,”

“Nobody signs for life in a club. It doesn’t work like that.

“But I don’t have a free pass to leave. I have a contract until 2020. I’ll let destiny handle the rest.

“I’m in Lyon for two more games and then we’ll see,” he added.

“For now, there’s nothing. The president trusts me and I feel good at Lyon.”

The French midfielder has been deemed as a replacement to Phillipe Coutinho, who left for Barcelona in a club record during the January transfer window, while Naby Keita will also be arriving at the Merseysiders this summer.

But disagreeing with the media is Fekir’s father who dismises all rumours linking him to the Merseysiders.

“Nabil in Liverpool, that’s wrong,” he said, speaking to Olympique-et-lyonnais.com.

“I hear there are arrangements, stuff like that – I was surprised.

“I can deny this information right now; it’s not true. Otherwise Nabil would have told me right away, we are very close.

“I can guarantee you that he never met him [Klopp]. His dream is to play in the Champions League with his boyhood club.”

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas also denied a possible switch to the Premier League this summer.

Aulas continued: “I do not know where this comes from, If we had to negotiate for Nabil with a club, I would be the first to know. There has been no contact.”

Lyon will be make their comeback to the Europe biggest game (UEFA Champions League) next season following their poor form in their last campaign which denied them a Champions League football.
