Olympique Lyonnais President Jean-Michel Aulas has claimed that Real Madrid are interested in bringing France forward Nabil Fekir to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Fekir was on the verge of joining Premier League giants, Liverpool, but the deal ended up falling through because of the Reds' inability to complete the deal following doubts over the player's knee injury in the past.
Aulas, not impressed with Liverpool's antics, is reportedly not keen on doing business with the Merseyside outfit and revealed that European champions, Real Madrid, are interested in capitalising on the collapse.
Talking to BeIN sports, he said, "When his move to Liverpool fell through, many clubs revealed their interest in him, not only Real Madrid and their new Coach," as quoted by Football-Espana.
"Anything is possible. We want him to stay, but if he wants to leave, we’ll try to find the best team for him in terms of size and performance."
Real Madrid will look to bolster their squad after keeping things tight in the last three transfer windows. Recently, they have gone after promising youngsters ahead of proven world-beaters, and this signing seems to fit their profile better.
Nabil Fekir, primarily a number 10, also has the ability to operate in wider areas and could be a valuable addition to Julen Lopetegui's roster. He scored 23 goals for Lyon last season and is in Russia, contributing to France's World Cup cause.
