Chelsea rival Liverpool as Fekir says 'anything can happen - and quickly'

But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very fast in football.

Chelsea though are showing serious interest in landing Fekir.

"As you can see, I'm still at Lyon".

The French worldwide was linked with a number of Europe's biggest clubs following a spectacular season with Lyon that saw him rack up 24 goals and 9 assists across all competitions last term.

Liverpool have continued to monitor Fekir's situation and the Mirror claim they remain interested in taking the playmaker to Anfield as Jurgen Klopp looks to finally replace Philippe Coutinho following his January move to Barcelona.

"I want to play as much as I can", he said.

Nabil Fekir will not feature for Lyon against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge this evening as talk of a move to London rumbles on.

Liverpool are set to start the new season with one of Sturridge, Shaqiri or Mané as their no.10 instead of Fekir but reports from France suggest there is still hope.

Talking to OL TV, as quoted by "Get France Football News", Fekir said: "Who knows what will happen in the future but I am very happy at Lyon". Liverpool had agreed on a deal worth an initial 55million euros plus 5m euros in add-ons, with Fekir even recording an interview with the club website ahead of his unveiling. So I still feel I need a proper season of playing. We have very good players, a great atmosphere. Though there is nearly zero chance Liverpool signs him up this window before Friday's deadline, Fekir has only two years left in his contract.
