Betis deal at risk as Fekir reps ask Mendes to secure Lyon exit

Super agent Jorge Mendes is set to drive Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir's move to Spain.

L'Equipe says Fekir's camp have made contact with Mendes and have requested he assist them in finding a new club for the midfielder.

Real Betis are in talks with Lyon for Fekir and currently favourites to land the Frenchman.

However, Mendes' involvement now expands the field, particularly in Spain.

Sevilla and Valencia, which are very close to Mendes, are now genuine prospects to beat Betis to Fekir's signature.
