Lyon star Nabil Fekir says there’s ‘nothing for the moment’ in relation to reports that Liverpool have agreed a £62million deal to sign him.
Reports in France on Sunday night claimed the Reds had agreed to sign Fekir on a five-year deal and that the Frenchman would move to Anfield alongside his younger brother Yassin.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas played down reports of a deal by insisting the club had not had contact with Liverpool but refused to rule out selling Fekir.
The France international has now directly addressed the rumours and says he will wait until the end of the season before resolving his future.
‘There’s nothing for the moment. I’m still at Lyon,’ said Fekir after Lyon’s 3-0 win on Sunday.
‘There are two matches left. We’ll prepare for them in the best possible way. At the end of the season, we’ll see, but for the moment, there’s nothing.’
Liverpool have already agreed a £70m deal to sign RB Leipzig midfielder Naby Keita but there’s room left in the budget for Jurgen Klopp to invest elsewhere.
Chelsea have been touted as another possible suitor for Fekir but the lack of clarity over Antonio Conte’s future could hinder the Blues’ chances.
Arsenal are also credited with a long standing interest for the Lyon star, and have been keen on his signature for the last three transfer windows.
