3 reasons why Nabil Fekir would be a brilliant signing for Liverpool

Liverpool target to consider offers

As we've seen over this summer, Lyon are very capable of making the media think one thing only for things to turn out differently, with club president Jean-Michel Aulas quite eager to talk to the press when give the chance.

Talking to RMC Sport, the Lyon supremo announced the future of Nabil Fekir."I think that Nabil will be at OL next season", he explained on Saturday.

Fekir has featured from the bench in all four of France's World Cup games in Russian Federation.

Before any transfer takes place Fekir will be hoping to help steer France into the World Cup Final, with a semi-final tie against Belgium next for Les Bleus.

It is thought the club are still keen to bring in the midfielder and will be boosted by the statement made by Lyon manager Bruno Genesio in which he conceded that Fekir would be allowed to leave this summer if a "bigger club" wanted to sign him.

"I have a near father-son relationship with my players, and I gave him the opportunity to join Liverpool due to their legendary status".

'I did that too with Tolisso and Umtiti, he is our captain and it is the coach's wish to keep him'.

The 24-year-old France worldwide saw his proposed transfer to Liverpool collapse at the 11th hour and the player subsequently finds himself in transfer limbo. If all the players come back healthy from the World Cup, then we already have a really good team and that is all I need to know. We will see after the World Cup.

Houssem Aouar has signed a new five-year contract with Lyon, the Ligue 1 club have confirmed.
