Liverpool-linked Nabil Fekir is keen to leave Lyon this summer.

That’s according to Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.

Fekir almost joined Liverpool 12 months ago in a £53 million transfer on the eve of the World Cup.

The 25-year-old scored 12 goals and added nine assists for Lyon, who finished third in Ligue 1, but was not in the same kind of explosive form he enjoyed the previous year, when he managed 23 goals and eight assists across all competitions.

Fekir has just one year left on his contract with Les Gones, meaning Lyon are under pressure to sell him this summer in order to recoup full value for the attacker.

And Lyon chief Aulas insists Fekir is keen to depart the Groupama Stadium. 

Speaking to L'Equipe, Aulas said of Fekir: "His preference is towards a departure.

“We are open to discussions. We have no news. 

“We are waiting for proposals in the coming days but for the moment, we do not have any.”
