Nabil Fekir Says He's 'Not Close to the Reds'

Fekir insists a move to Liverpool is "not close" as speculation mounts over the Lyon playmaker's future.

Liverpool have shown in the past that they can be tough negotiators in the transfer market so it remains to be seen if they are willing to meet the asking price for the Lyon captain.

Fekir, 24, has been linked with a move to Anfield as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who left Liverpool to join Barcelona during the January transfer window.

Azarenka loses in 1st round at French Open
Nadal, who has lost just twice in 81 matches on the red clay of Paris , is once again the heavy favourite to triumph. Azarenka, a semifinalist in Paris five years ago, is ranked 84th after giving birth to a son in December 2016.

Fekir's comments follow those of Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas earlier this week which suggested the player could stay with the club despite appearing to bid farewell to their fans following the final game of the season.

The same report says that Liverpool FC are ready to pay a fee in the region of £60m to secure the signing of Fekir this summer.

Fekir has scored 23 goals in 40 appearances across all competitions for Lyon this season.

They described the bomb as being an improvised explosive device and said the two men fled the scene immediately after it went off. The regional police has released a photograph on Twitter showing two people in dark zip-up hoodies walking into the restaurant.

Aulas has now also suggested that there have been no discussions with Liverpool and hinted that any deal would most likely take place after this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

"There are talks with several clubs but I'm going to take time to think".

He told L'Equipe: 'We simply know that teams are interested. "Nabil has not indicated that he wants to leave or if he wants to play one more year with Champions League football". However, Fekir, who has been at Lyon since his youth days, could still potentially choose to stay at his boyhood club in light of their Champions League qualification.
