Fekir refuses to commit future to Lyon


Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir has told France Football that he is not thinking about his future.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield this Summer after an excellent season in Ligue 1 with his current club.

But he has refused to deny or confirm claims in the media that he has already agreed a five year contract with Liverpool to head to the Premier League at the end of the season.

“I do not think about this at all.” he said.

“As I said before, my only priority is to win this match against Nice. I am only thinking about this. After the match, we’ll see.” he added.

Fekir told L’Equipe earlier this week that he has spoken to the Lyon president about his future and that he is not tied to them for life.

“The president told me, like he told everyone else when they signed their contracts, that we have the possibility to talk whenever I want to leave.” he said.

“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.” he finished.

Liverpool supporters will be hopeful that he will be making the move across the Channel this Summer.
