Fekir responds to Liverpool links


Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir has responded to speculation linking him with a move to Liverpool.

The France international was linked with a switch to Anfield last month as several players were touted as potential successors for Philippe Coutinho after his big money move to Spain to join Barcelona.

Fekir was praised by many supporters as speculation tentatively linked him with a switch from Ligue 1 to the Premier League to become part of Jurgen Klopp’s squad.

But, while the twenty-four year old has admitted that he heard about apparent interest from Merseyside, nothing serious happened and he will remain with the French club.

“Yeah, I heard.” he told Onze Mondial.

“I heard, but there was never anything concrete.” he added.

Many fans are eager to see Klopp set his sights on a deal to bring the goalscoring midfielder to the club in the Summer and Fekir himself may well be hoping for the same thing.
