Lyon president Aulas upbeat keeping hold of Fekir

Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas insists Nabil Fekir will be staying this season.

The attacking midfielder was on the verge of joining Liverpool in the summer, until a failed medical saw the £60million move shelved.

Real Madrid and Chelsea have also reportedly shown an interest in the 24-year-old.

"All players want to join big clubs and we will have the same attitude with Nabil as with his former team-mates," Aulas told OL TV.

"We will have to wait until the end of the transfer window. But he will stay at 95 per cent.

"We've seen the love of the fans for him. Lyon is a great city of football."
