Lyon deny Nabil Fekir transfer to Liverpool has been agreed despite reports in France

The French club used it's official Twitter feed to reassure fans that they hope to keep the 24-year-old playmaker.

There have been reports that Liverpool have agreed a £62million deal for the Lyon skipper with RMC Sport claiming they had offered him a five-year contract.

But Lyon chief executive Jean-Michel Aulas said: "We have no contact with Liverpool today. Nabil Fekir is here. We hope to keep it next year to play the Champions League."

Fekir has scored 17 goals in Ligue 1 this season as well as laying on a further seven assists.

Arsenal are also thought to be keen having raided Lyon for £50 France star Alexandre Lacazette last summer.

Emirates spies checked on him once again on April 20 when he scored in Lyon's 5-2 win at league rivals Dijon.

It seems former Liverpool manager Gerard Houllier could be involved in any deal, having become an adviser to Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.

It is thought Houllier travelled to England a few weeks ago to finalise the deal with Liverpool, and Fekir will be joined by his younger brother, Yassin Fekir, at Anfield.

But Lyon owner and chairman Jean-Michel Aulas responded by playing the situation down.

His tweet insisted that he still hopes to convince him to stay and play in the Champions League.
