"There have been no discussions either with Nabil or with other clubs, so it's very premature".
Everton could live to regret not signing Nabil Fekir now he is being strongly linked with a move to Liverpool.
The Telegraph claim a breakthrough in the last 24 hours has encouraged Liverpool to such a degree the Reds believe they are the stand-out frontrunners.
Lyon's French midfielder Nabil Fekir being strongly linked with a move to Liverpool
At Lyon, Fekir has become one of the hottest properties in Europe and a move for the playmaker would be seen as a direct replacement for Philippe Coutinho after he joined Barcelona in a deal worth £142million in January.
Now reports in France suggest a deal for Fekir to move to Anfield could be thrashed out imminently, with Anfield insiders suggesting talks over a deal for the star who scored 21 goals for Lyon this season.
The France worldwide has been touted as a long-term replacement for Coutinho, and given his ability to operate in midfield and further forward in attack this is feasible.
"He also hesitates to know if he should play in the Champions League with OL". The France worldwide is aware of Liverpool's interest and, when asked about a possible transfer to Anfield by RTL replied: "Why not?"
