Lyon manager Bruno Genesio has refused to rule out the sale of Nabil Fekir before Thursday's transfer deadline for English clubs. The France worldwide was heavily tipped to join Liverpool prior to the World Cup but the deal was scuppered after the Reds tried to re-negotiate his £53m asking price citing his injury record.
Amidst speculations of potential transfer and reports of Fekir being offered a new contract at the French Club, the 25-year-old has finally spoken up on transfer.
"We do not know what will happen in the future, but I am very good at OL".
"There may be opportunities that come up before the end of the window". For now, he is a Lyon player'.
Fekir enjoyed a superb campaign previous year that saw him provide 23 goals and 8 assists to help Lyon finish third in the Ligue 1 table and his form saw him earn a place in the French squad that went on to lift the World Cup in Russian Federation last month.More news: Europe swelters in record heatwave
Fekir has returned to training with Lyon after his exploits with France in the World Cup and despite the fact that he was in a Liverpool kit for his unreleased announcement video, he will start the season in a Lyon shirt if the Ligue 1 said aren't paid the fee they are demanding.
Insisting on his happiness at Lyon, the skipper said:"As you can see, I am in Lyon".
It seems like the Fekir saga to Liverpool is not finished yet.
Thibaut Courtois is expected to leave for Real Madrid which will enable Mateo Kovacic's loan move the other way.
