Lyon admit Ndombele and Fekir could leave

Lyon have admitted that Tanguy Ndombele and Nabil Fekir could leave the club this summer.

The French internationals have been linked with moves away from the Ligue 1 club, with several clubs across Europe believed to be interested in the duo.

Club captain Fekir came close to leaving Lyon last summer to join Liverpool, even being pictured in the club’s shirt ahead of his unveiling, only to see a £53m deal collapse due to concerns over his medical.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has revealed the club are again open to selling the 25-year-old, who has just a year remaining on his contract, though says they are yet to receive any offers for the midfielder.

“His preference is shifting towards a move. We are open to discussions. I have no news. We are waiting for offers in the coming days but for now, there is nothing,” Aulas told L’Equipe.

Fellow midfielder Ndombele has emerged as one of the most in-demand young talents in Europe since joining Lyon from Amiens in 2017.

The 22-year-old has broken into the French national team and is believed to have attracted interest from the likes of Tottenham, Juventus Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.

Aulas admits the club have received several offers for the highly-rated star, though no club has yet matched Lyon’s asking price, which is thought to be £63 million.

“Nothing is decided for Tanguy Ndombele. We have lots of offers but they do not come up to the price we feel is right.”
