Lyon captain Nabil Fekir has hinted that he could be leaving the Ligue 1 club during the summer transfer window. The France international left the playing field in tears following Lyon’s 3-2 win over Nice on Saturday night and shortly after the game, the attacker admitted that he could pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere.

He said: “I don’t know, frankly. I had a great season here, with the staff, the crowd and exceptional players. I gave everything for Lyon, we’ll see for the future. Even if all was not perfect this season, we finished well. It’s been four years since I’ve been pro and it’s one of my greatest joys (to finish third). Maybe, maybe, and as I told you, this game was very important to me.We will have a discussion with the president (Jean-Michael Aulas). We’ll see how it goes.”

France international Alexandre Lacazette is hoping to make a key impression for Arsenal during the final stages of the season. The Gunners are in the driving seat to reach the last four of the Europa League after beating CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the quarter-final first-leg, and the Frenchman is aiming to guide the club to trophy success in Lyon next month.

Speaking to reporters, he said: “I missed football a lot during my break. I have come back stronger, but it is true scoring on my comeback on Sunday (against Stoke) helped. It's important for me because in the (Premier) league, Aubameyang is going to play, unless the coach plays the two of us together. But I know in European competition, it is the chance to show plenty of things for me. I am desperate to win this trophy and, when we play like we did tonight, we can go far.”

The representative of Nabil Fekir has confirmed that his client could pursue a move away from Lyon at the end of the season. However, the France international is said to want to leave with respect, and the decision over a potential exit needs to be mutual between both parties. Speaking to the French press, Fekir’s representative admitted the 24-year-old does have plans to plying his trade for a top-ten European club in the future.

He said: “First and foremost we would respect Lyon. We know that, at some point, we may have to ask questions about a move. However, any decision will be taken with intelligence and in the interests of all parties. When you leave the club that trained you, to whom you owe everything, you must leave on good terms—if you have to leave. Nabil has the personal goal of being part of a top ten club in Europe, and he has that potential, but a career is built little by little.”

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has issued a public apology to Henrikh Mkhitaryan after he was substituted midway the Red Devils' win over Derby County in the FA Cup. The Armenia international made his second straight start of the campaign versus the Rams, but he only lasted until the half-time break.

Speaking after the game, Mourinho felt it was unfair on his part to sub Mkhitaryan, but he did not have much of a choice as he had to enforce a change to change the dynamics of the match, he said: "[It was] unfair [to take Mkhitaryan off] and I told him that at half-time.
"I didn’t like what I did. He didn’t deserve it, he was playing well, he wasn’t playing bad. He had a couple of missed passes but he was playing well and giving a good dynamic to the team. My feeling was just that Rashford is not going to score a goal and because of that I’m not going to lose time and I’m going to play Romelu [Lukaku] so then I had to sacrifice a player."

Lyon Manager Happy with the Response from Memphis Depay

Lyon manager Bruno Genesio is happy with the response given by Memphis Depay after being dropped the bench over the last few matches. The Dutchman was signed from Manchester United back in January 2016 for around €16 million. He has become one of the key players for Lyon since this transfer, but there have been occasions where the player has not been performing up to his best. He has been a regular first-team player after being named on the bench only for two out of the nine games this season. Yet, there has been a feeling that Depay had not been giving his 100% in recent matches.

This proving to be the case and manager Genesio decided to act by dropping the player to the bench for the recent game against Dijon. This surprise decision from the manager towards the end of September started rumours that Depay may be sold in the January transfer window. Yet, it appears to have been a ploy to get the former PSV Eindhoven winger back to focus. Since then, the player has been on a great run of form and has been able to score four goals. He also came up with a hat-trick in the 5-0 victory over Troyes during the weekend. This was an extremely important result for Lyon, as it moved them into the top four places.
