Nabil Fekir will not commit his future to Lyon, despite being presented with the opportunity to do so on multiple occasions.
Instead, he says that he’ll see what happens, which is football-code for: ‘If someone good comes in for me, I’m off’.
Fekir said this to France Football when asked if tomorrow’s clash with Nice will be his last game, translated by the Mirror:” I do not think about this at all.
“As I said before, my only priority is to win this match against Nice. I am only thinking about this. After the match, we’ll see.”
Earlier in the week, he dropped another hint, too.
“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,” he told L’Equipe .
“Nobody signs for life in a club. It doesn’t work like that.”
Liverpool are 100% interested in the 24-year-old, although earlier reports from France that the deal is done and dusted are wide of the mark.
A fee with Lyon and personal terms are still to be sorted, although we’re confident that if Jurgen Klopp has named Fekir a priority, Michael Edwards will get the job done.
After all, last summer we secured the future transfer of Naby Keita and in January we landed Virgil van Dijk, Klopp’s two top targets.
Fekir could be the icing on the cake.
