Nabil Fekir has insisted that he isn’t close to leaving Lyon despite interest from Liverpool FC in the current transfer window.

The France international has emerged as a top target for the Merseyside outfit as Jurgen Klopp looks to improve his attacking options following a positive season.

Liverpool FC lost 3-1 to La Liga giants Real Madrid in the Champions League final following Loris Karius’ disastrous performance in Kiev.

The Reds have transfer funds to spend following Philippe Coutinho’s £142m controversial move to Spanish outfit FC Barcelona in the January transfer window.

The Merseyside outfit struggled in the absence of Mohamed Salah in the Champions League final after the Egypt international was forced off with a shoulder problem.

Fekir would provide Klopp with an alternative in the attacking positions in the Liverpool FC team.

The Lyon captain has played down reports linking the attacking with an imminent switch to the Premier League side.

“I’m not close to the Reds,” Fekir told French TV show Telefoot.

“There are discussions with several clubs but we will take the time to think.”

Liverpool FC finished in fourth place in the Premier League table last season thanks to a 4-0 win over Brighton and Hove Albion in their final game of the campaign.

The Reds signed AS Monaco midfielder Fabinho in a £40m deal in the summer transfer window to bolster his options in the middle of the park.
