Lyon chairman opens door for Liverpool to revive Nabil Fekir transfer

Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas is open to Liverpool renewing their efforts to sign Nabil Fekir.

Fekir was on the brink of moving to Anfield last month before the Reds pulled the plug on the deal following the results of his medical.

Liverpool had agreed a deal worth an initial 55million euros plus 5m euros in add-ons and had even recorded an interview with the club website ahead of his unveiling.

Following the failed deal, Fekir linked up with the France side ahead of the World Cup and is expected to be on the bench for the final on Sunday afternoon against Croatia.

Jurgen Klopp is still keen on signing an attacking midfielder having already signed Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri this summer.

And Lyon chairman Aulas believes there's a chance Fekir will still end up at Anfield before the transfer window closes next month.

"It seems to me that Liverpool could come back in," he said in an interview with le10sport. "That's what I've read in the press, but I've not been told anything.

"His transfer failed in June, but he hasn't been affected by it. He is focused on the World Cup, and he still has his heart in Lyon.

"Nabil is much closer to Lyon today than he was when we talked to Liverpool.

"Maybe he will go to Liverpool, or another club, but if he stays at Lyon, it will be a great year for him and for us."

Fekir has in recent weeks been linked with interest from a number of clubs including Real Madrid and Manchester United, but it's believed he has set his heart on a move to Liverpool.
