Lyon have told Nabil Fekir to make a decision over whether or not he will sign a new contract by the start of 2019, with uncertainty rife over the midfielder’s future.
In June, Liverpool pulled the plug on a £53million deal to sign Nabil Fekir at the eleventh hour after a medical revealed that he was at the risk of suffering a serious knee injury in the future.
The Frenchman was supposed to be the Reds’ replacement for Philippe Coutinho, who joined Barcelona in January for a whopping £142million.
According to the Liverpool Echo, Lyon have issued Nabil Fekir an ultimatum. The Frenchman has been told that he needs to make a decision as to whether or not he will accept a contract offer from the Ligue 1 outfit.
Come January, the 25-year-old will have just 18 months left to run on his deal and the board at Lyon are keen to get his future sorted out as soon as possible. Apparently, the Fekir and Lyon are trying to figure out who is representing him.
Jean-Michel Aulas said: “For the moment, we have not really had a real discussion, even if we met three weeks ago.
“The sorting out of various things concerning who the agent is, is ongoing. The aim, is to have a clear and precise position from his point of view between now and the end of the year.
“Jean-Pierre Bernès is still his agent but he cannot be so at the end of the player’s contract.”
