25-year-old French midfielder desperate to join Liverpool in summer

Nabil Fekir is still interested in making a switch to Liverpool.

When asked about the plans for the future, the French midfielder told Le Progres: “Discussions are ongoing. I have sat down with the president, things are advancing slowly. When will I take a decision? I am not fixing myself a date, I am not in a rush.

“Nobody is putting any pressure on it, and I like to take my time. I do not know [how long I will stay]. Last year was supposed to be my last, and in the end, I’m still here. I cannot know the answer to this.

“I am happy at Lyon, but which player doesn’t dream of discovering a new league, another club?”

Nabil Fekir looked certain to be joining Anfield outfit in the summer, but the move for the France international broke down at a very late stage, and as such, he has remained with Lyon for the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

Only the parties involved know the truth as to why the transfer collapsed but the World Cup winner is still keen to make a move to Anfield, and now it remains to be seen if Liverpool are still interested in the 25-year-old.
