Lyon are eyeing up a move for Morrocan winger Hakim Ziyech this summer as a replacement for Liverpool target Nabil Fekir.
According to Mirror journalist David Maddock, Lyon are lining up Ziyech as they prepare for Fekir to leave the club.

The report claims that Fekir’s move to Liverpool is back on, after the midfielder pleaded with Lyon’s president to allow him to make the switch to the Premier League.
Lyon are now preparing for his exit by looking into the signing of Ziyech, which would be a massive boost for Liverpool.
The Reds, however, are now willing to play ball at £53m and will want the price dropped before they agree to sign Fekir in the coming weeks ahead of next season.
