Liverpool transfer news: Nabil Fekir set to snub Reds and Chelsea by signing new deal with Lyon – reports


Nabil Fekir looks set to reject the advances of Liverpool and Chelsea once again to remain in Ligue 1.

The Lyon captain was strongly linked with a move to Anfield over the summer, with a deal for £50million agreed at one point.

However, the deal collapsed and it looked as though Chelsea were going to steal a march on their Premier League rivals.

With the futures of Eden Hazard and Willian unclear, the Blues were reportedly interested in bringing the France international to Stamford Bridge after his World Cup heroics.

Fekir is one of Lyon’s best players alongside Manchester United flop Memphis Depay and, according to L’Equipe, will be rewarded with a new deal.

Lyon’s president Jean-Michel Aulas has scheduled talks with the 25-year-old’s father in the hope terms can be thrashed out quickly.


Fekir’s current contract is due to expire in June 2020 and the plan is to extend that by a further three years.

The forward scored and played well against Manchester City in the recent Champions League fixture between the two sides, with Kopites pleading with Jurgen Klopp on Twitter to bring the playmaker to Merseyside.
