Liverpool target Nabil Fekir attracts interest from Juventus
NABIL FEKIR is a summer transfer target for Juventus, as indicated by reports.
The Lyon midfielder, 25, almost joined Liverpool last year but remained at the Ligue 1 club for another season.
According to L’Equipe, though, he is being eyed up by the Italian victors.
The club captain has been in fine form once again this season with 12 goals and seven assists.
Olympique Lyon may be 25 points behind title-winners PSG but they are still in a battle with Lille to finish ‘best of the rest’.
Fekir – who won the World Cup with France – is out of contract at the end of next season and his club will be edgy to abstain from losing him for nothing.
So the likelihood is that they will cash in this summer and Fekir will get his turn.
The playmaker’s agent Jean-Pierre Bernes did begin contract talks with Lyon but the pair decided to part and those have not built up any more.
Juventus have already confirmed the signing of Aaron Ramsey on a free exchange this late spring.
The Arsenal midfielder, 28, will end his 11-year spell a the Emirates when he moves to Turin to join up with C.Ronaldo & Co.
Massimiliano Allegri’s side wrapped up their eighth Serie A title straight a weekend ago.
