Nabil Fekir has told Lyon president Jean Michael Aulas to sell him to Liverpool.
Sources say Fekir has made clear to Lyon’s owner he still wants a move to Liverpool.
And the France star has reached an agreement that Aulas will at least reopened talks with the Reds to explore the prospect of resurrecting his “dream” move.
Fekir has actually met twice with Lyon chief Aulas during this World Cup, the latest after France’s dramatic semi-final victory over Belgium when the French owner – who is influential within the FFF – went into the dressing room to join celebrating players.
He has held sit down talks with the talented midfielder and his advisor Jean-Pierre Bernes to discuss the collapsed move to Anfield, which faltered on medical details, after a £53m deal had been agreed.
The Lyon Captain has remained interested to join Jurgen Klopps’ Red Army.
