Liverpool £53m long-term target drops hint on potential Anfield move

Nabil Fekir has admitted that he is unsure about his Lyon future, nearly a year on from a proposed move to Liverpool falling through.

The France international was on the brink of joining the Reds last summer, only for the Premier League side to pull the plug on a deal at the last moment.

Liverpool were reportedly concerned by issues flagged during the player’s medical and felt that it was too much of a risk to spend £53m.

Fekir is keen to move on from the botched transfer, but the 25-year-old has refused to verbally commit his future to Lyon.

“Liverpool? It’s part of a player’s career, but it makes you stronger and you have to move forward,” he told Telefoot.

“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].”

Fekir has nine goals and five assists in 23 Ligue 1 appearances for Lyon this term, as well as playing a direct part in five Champions League goals.
