The infamous “F-Word”. The Lyon forward – who was very nearly a Liverpool player in the summer – has opened up on his future with the Ligue 1 club.
On the edge of a transfer to Anfield nearly a year ago, the Nabil Fekir deal fell through after our medical team felt that underlying injuries discovered during his medical made the £53m price tag too much of a risk to take.
The France international seems unsure about his future with Lyon. Speaking to Telefoot, the Frenchman revealed that he is eager to put the past behind him but has yet to agree to commit his future to his current club.
“Liverpool? It’s part of a player’s career, but it makes you stronger and you have to move forward,” he admitted.
“I really don’t know what I will do [in the summer] but as I said I feel good in Lyon, the president trusts me, that’s good. You will see [if I extend my contract].”
This season, Fekir has registered nine goals and five assists in 23 league appearances for Lyon. In Europe, he has helped to create five goals in the Champions League.
When the Fekir saga hit us in the summer many Reds fans were understandably disappointed. This season we’ve missed a creative outlet in the middle of the park. Time will tell if the French maestro does leave Lyon – where he goes is anyone’s guess right now.
