Genesio: Fekir Will Leave Lyon If Given An Opportunity

Liverpool target to consider offers

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas is confident Nabil Fekir will remain at the club beyond this transfer window despite still being linked with a move to Liverpool and Real Madrid.

France worldwide Fekir was set to join the Reds for around £53m but the switch collapsed at the last minute due to medical concerns.

"I think that Nabil will be at OL next season", he explained to RMC Sport on Saturday.

Fekir reportedly failed a medical at Melwood, after the club had agreed a deal with Lyon.

Reports have suggested however the Premier League side may look to resurrect the deal following the World Cup.

Fekir is now in action at the World Cup for France and Les Bleus take on Belgium in the semi-final on Tuesday.

"I have a near father-son relationship with my players, and I gave him the opportunity to join Liverpool due to their legendary status. He is our captain and it's the coach's wish to keep him".

The 24-year-old scored 23 times for Lyon last season.

Jurgen Klopp's side have begun strengthening their squad this summer, having already signed Fabinho and Naby Keita in the central midfield places. "Even if he is interested in clubs, he will be with us next year, like the midfielder of last year. We must not let our best players leave". We work a lot on it, we reinforce it.

Jurgen Klopp is now eyeing a move for his fellow countryman, Brandt, who was named in Germany's squad for the World Cup in Russian Federation ahead of Manchester Ciy's Leroy Sane.
