Lyon plan to prevent Liverpool FC from signing Nabil Fekir

Real Madrid attacker Marco Asensio has insisted that he is "very focused" on the World Cup and is not concerned about ongoing links with a move to Liverpool.

Marco Asensio has shown that he possesses the talent to be one of the next great stars of world football and Liverpool are so enthralled by him that they are preparing a bid of 180 million euros.

He developed a lot as a player under Zinedine Zidane, but was not a regular starter.

The Lyon chief says he is no longer talking with Liverpool but that he had a long chat with Mourinho, though he did not explicitly say this was about Fekir in particular. In the meantime, he remains a popular figure in the transfer market, with Liverpool hot on his heels.

For the longest time, Nabil Fekir was believed to be the aforementioned replacement.

Kolarov scores from free kick, Serbia beats Costa Rica 1-0
Milinkovic-Savic gave Navas a workout in the first half, and while he didn't score, he is clearly a potent weapon for Serbia . Costa Rica's top scorer Marco Urena suffered facial fractures about a month ago.

Fekir is under contract at the Groupama Stadium until June 2020 and is also understood to be of interest to Real Madrid.

Marca report that Asensio has been monitored by Liverpool for several years and the club are ready to make their move this summer.

Such performances, along with the competition for places in attack at the Bernabeu, have led to speculation that other clubs might try and tempt him away.

In the main, he's been used as a substitute for Real Madrid, with three of Cristiano Ronaldo, Isco, Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema lining up as an attacking trident. By offloading Asensio to Liverpool in a deal worth around €200 million, the Real Madrid president could relay the money to secure the services of Neymar.

Fekir, who scored 23 goals for Lyon last season and is part of France's World Cup squad in Russian Federation, had been identified as a long-term replacement for Philippe Coutinho by Liverpool.
