Lyon coach Genesio leaves door open to Fekir Liverpool move

Lyon club president Jean-Michel Aulas expects Nabil Fekir to remain at the club despite suggestions Liverpool will renew their attempts to sign the France worldwide.

France worldwide Fekir appeared on the brink of a move to Anfield only for the deal to fall through after he had completed a medical and agreed personal terms.

Talking to RMC Sport, the Lyon supremo announced the future of Nabil Fekir."I think that Nabil will be at OL next season", he explained on Saturday.

Yet, despite supporters jumping to conclusions about what it means, Lyon manager Bruno Genesio insists that Yassin's new contract is not a ploy to make Nabil stay at the club.

"I have nearly a father-son relationship with my players".

Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, Genesio said (via Liverpool's official website): "If there is a possibility like with Liverpool, Nabil will certainly seize the opportunity, once both parties agree".

They won all the eight completed 3-match bilateral T20I series' they have played so far. With a win in the first T20I, India were the favorites for the second T20I.

"I have an nearly father-son relationship with my players".

Liverpool were hoping to sign Fekir before the World Cup kicked off and put the attacking midfielder through his medical paces, before then seeing the deal collapse after they tried to renegotiate the fee.

"I did the same with [Corentin] Tolisso [who joined Bayern Munich] and [Samuel] Umtiti [who went to Barcelona]". We will see after the World Cup.

Liverpool have already added to their midfield arsenal with the additions of Naby Keita and Fabinho, and Fekir could be next. "We must not let our best players leave".

"While other clubs are interested, he will be with us next year in the middle".
