No offers have yet been made for Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir this summer, according to club president Jean-Michel Aulas.

The world-cup winning midfielder is once again being rumoured with a move to the English top-tier after seeing a transfer to the Merseyside Reds fall through at the last minute of the last year.

The Frenchman is ready to make a move on from Ligue 1 giants and amid reports the Reds have been Nabil Fekir at a cut-down price, Aulas has spoken about the future of the French playmaker.

‘I have not had any recent news,’ Aulas said about Fekir.

‘The last bit of news we’ve had was when we were together at the Elysee when he received the Legion d’Honneur with the French national team.

‘His preference is a departure. We are open to discussions, we leave the door ajar for Nabil but for the moment, there are no offers.’

The Reds were prepared to pay £53million for the Frenchman last summer before concerns were raised after the knee injury of France international star.

Despite the Merseyside Reds’ decision to abandon the deal, Frenchman has proved his fitness in the last campaign, playing 39 games in total last term.

It is unclear if the Reds will make any major signings this year, however, the Reds boss has been known to spend big when his top targets will be available.
