The 27-year-old has also been linked with Chelsea, Juventus and AC Milan.

He told The Sun: “There has been contact with Liverpool, although I don’t know as yet if they have shown their interest directly to Lyon.

“People make their decisions based on the different leagues in different countries but I would rather decide based on the club. And Liverpool, why not? It is a great club.”
