Liverpool target Nabil Fekir has refused to rule out whether Lyon's game against OGC Nice on the final day of the Ligue 1 season will be his last outing for the club.

The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Merseyside, with some reports suggesting that a five-year deal has already been agreed with the Premier League club. While reports have quietened down since any initial flurry at the start of May, Chelsea and Arsenal have also been linked with the forward.

However, the France international remained coy on speculation when asked, failing to rule out that he is about to pull on Lyon colours for the last time.

"I do not think about this at all," Fekir told France Football (via the Mirror). "As I said before, my only priority is to win this match against Nice. I am only thinking about this. After the match, we’ll see."

Fekir has previously told L’Equipe that he can openly tell the Lyon president when he wants to leave the club, but said he doesn't 'have a free pass' to move away from the French outfit.

"The president told me, like he told everyone else when they signed their contracts, that we have the possibility to talk whenever I want to leave.


"Nobody signs for life in a club. It doesn't work like that. But I don't have a free pass to leave. I have a contract until 2020. I'll let destiny handle the rest.

"I'm in Lyon for two more games and then we'll see. For now, there's nothing. The president trusts me and I feel good at Lyon."

Meanwhile, Fekir's father has denied reports that his son has met with Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp to discuss a move.

“Nabil in Liverpool, that's wrong,” he said, in an interview with 

“I hear there are arrangements, stuff like that - I was surprised.

“I can deny this information right now; it's not true. Otherwise Nabil would have told me right away, we are very close.

“I can guarantee you that he never met him [Klopp]. His dream is to play in the Champions League with his boyhood club.”
