‘Liverpool are a big club’: Lyon forward makes ‘flattering’ confession about Reds

Liverpool’s Champions League success last season has undoubtedly returned the club to the upper echelons of the game in Europe and that will be a boost to their pursuit of players in the transfer market.

After last summer’s failed chase of Nabil Fekir, Lyon will be very wary of which of their players are having their heads turned by Jurgen Klopp’s side.

And following recent speculation (Liverpool Echo), Maxwel Cornet has responded to talks of him possibly moving to the Premier League and joining the newly crowned champions of Europe.

Speaking to beIN Sports France, the winger of the Ligue 1 club discussed whether or not his future would lie at the Groupama Stadium, and addressed the possibility of an Anfield switch this summer.

Cornet appears to have heard about the fact that Jurgen Klopp’s side may want to pursue his services, and he has admitted that being linked with a move to Liverpool is nothing but ‘flattering’ since the Reds are indeed a ‘big club’.

“I did not say I wanted to leave. We met the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] in January, and I said I wanted to extend [my contract], but talks were not successful.” he told beIN Sports

“Liverpool are a big club, any links are flattering. I’m under contract until 2021, but you never know in football so we’ll see.”
