Lyon are keen for star man Nabil Fekir to make a decision on whether or not he will agree fresh terms by the turn of the year.

France international Fekir came close to a move to Liverpool during the summer but the deal collapsed.

The 25-year-old will be a free agent in the summer of 2020 and Lyon are keen to extend Fekir’s stay, or potentially line-up a buyer if he makes it clear he will not sign a new contract.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas told the club’s AGM: ‘For the moment, we haven’t really got into a real discussion, even though we met three weeks ago.

‘The sorting out of certain things regarding the question of his agent is underway. The aim is to have a clear and precise position from him between now and the end of the year. Jean-Pierre Bernes is still his agent, but he might not be between now and the end of his contract.’

Reports suggest Liverpool are still interested despite the failed summer transfer, while Chelsea and Bayern Munich – who are on the lookout for a replacement for Arjen Robben after he announced he will leave at the end of the season – have been mentioned as potential suitors.
