Nabil Fekir has been linked with a move to the Premier League

The Lyon playmaker has been hotly touted to make the switch to the Premier League this summer.

Reports flooded in earlier in the week that the Frenchman was ready to quit Ligue 1 for the Reds.

Even Sadio Mane endorsed the move, telling fans that he would do great things at Anfield.

He said: "I think he will do great things with us. He's going to enjoy himself here.

"You always need that kind of player. If we get him, it's going to be fire."

But the latest reports from France have revealed that Jurgen Klopp has hit a snag in his pursuit of the 24-year-old.

According to L'Equipe, the Blues have taken steps towards signing the France international and are now in pole position.

It is understood a bid of around £62m will be made for the midfielder, who has scored 21 times this campaign.

Arsenal and Manchester United have also been included, having kept tabs on the star earlier in the season.

Fekir when pressed on his future was giving nothing away.

He said: "There's nothing for the moment. I'm still at Lyon.

"There are two matches left. We'll prepare for them in the best possible way. At the end of the season, we'll see, but for the moment, there's nothing."
