Liverpool £62m dream target finally responds potential transfer links

Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir has revealed the French club will not stand in his way if he opts to seek a new challenge in the summer.

The France international has been heavily linked with a £62million move to Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp having reportedly identified the 24-year-old as a long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho who joined Barcelona in January.

Fekir’s father denied claims earlier this week that Klopp had already met with the talented playmaker, but Fekir Jnr admits he will leave Lyon at some point in the future.

‘The president (Jean-Michel Aulas) told me, like he told everyone else when they signed their contracts, that we have the possibility to talk whenever I want to leave,’ Fekir told L’Equipe via Goal.com. ‘Nobody signs for life in a club. It doesn’t work like that.

‘But I don’t have a free pass to leave. I have a contract until 2020. I’ll let destiny handle the rest. I’m in Lyon for two more games and then we’ll see. For now, there’s nothing. The president trusts me and I feel good at Lyon.’
