France global Fekir was set to join the Reds for around £53m but the switch collapsed at the last minute due to medical concerns.

The Premier League side are still keen on resurrecting the move but Aulas is confident that Fekir will remain at the squad.

The Reds had been hoping to have a deal for the French global concluded and signed before the World Cup but negotiations fell through at the last minute.

Lyon boss Bruno Genesio says Nabil Fekir is open to offers should Europe's bigger clubs come knocking.

Fekir's France are now preparing for a World Cup semi-final showdown with Belgium on Tuesday.

"Nabil will, I think, be in at Lyon next season", Aulas said.

Liverpool have been given fresh hope in their pursuit of Lyon captain Nabil Fekir after his manager reveals he would be allowed to join a "bigger club" this summer.

"It is off at the moment but it doesn't seem to me that it is dead and buried at all", Sheth told the Transfer Talk podcast.

I understand that the reason a deal for the 24-year-old collapsed was because Liverpool were unwilling to risk spending so much money on a potentially injury prone player.

'It is all good but we will see what happens.
