Olympique Lyonnais forward Nabil Fekir has been linked with a move to Real Madrid. According to Spanish website Fichajes.net, the 22-year-old is one of Zinedine Zidane’s favourites and could be in Los Blancos’ wish-list.

The player has recently admitted his interest in signing for Los Merengues. In an interview with French television, Fekir said: “If Zizou calls me, I will gladly go tomorrow.”

A few months ago, Zidane praised the young forward: “He is an amazing player. He has an impressive touch and seems to have great personality. He has impressed me with his technique.”

The France international has caught the attention of many European giants and is expected to leave Lyon next summer, especially if his team fails to qualify for the Champions League.

According to Transfermarkt, the player’s current market value is 12 million euros, but Olympique would expect to get at least twice that ammount.

The latest Real Madrid transfer news have revealed that Los Blancos are eyeing several players to reinforce the forward position, and it seems that Fekir is not at the top of that list for now.
