French media outlet L'Equipe, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Reds are still interested in a potential deal to sign the France global in the summer transfer window.

'It's too early to say, ' he told reporters after Lyon's International Champions Cup defeat to Chelsea on Tuesday.

Chelsea are said to be "accelerating" their attempts to land France global and Lyon star Nabil Fekir ahead of Thursday's transfer deadline. But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very quickly in football.

According to L'Equipe, Lyon will be happy to sell if Liverpool - or another club - submits a bid in the region of £60million but given that the Reds abandoned negotiations when the fee was £53million, it seems all but certain Fekir will stay put this summer.

Insisting on his happiness at Lyon, the skipper said:"As you can see, I am in Lyon. I am very happy here", he said in quotes obtained via the Mirror. In an interview, he was also open to the possibility of departing for the Premier League before the English window closes on August 9.

Fekir was thought to be on the brink of a £57m move to Liverpool FC from Lyon as the Reds looked to improve their attacking options following Philippe Coutinho's exit in January.
