According to L'Equipe, though, he is being eyed up by the Italian champions.

The club captain has been in fine form once again this season with 12 goals and seven assists.

Lyon may be 25 points behind title-winners Paris Saint-Germain but they are still in a battle with Lille to finish 'best of the rest'.

Fekir – who won the World Cup with France – is out of contract at the end of next season and his club will be desperate to avoid losing him for free.

So the likelihood is that they will cash in this summer and Fekir will get his move.

The playmaker's agent Jean-Pierre Bernes did begin contract talks with Lyon but the pair decided to split and those have not developed any more.

Juventus have already confirmed the signing of Aaron Ramsey on a free transfer this summer.

The Arsenal midfielder, 28, will end his 11-year spell a the Emirates when he moves to Turin to join up with Cristiano Ronaldo & Co.

Massimiliano Allegri's side wrapped up their eighth Serie A title in a row last weekend.

But they have been linked with a number of other transfers as they look to conquer Europe rather than just Italy next year.

Benfica youngster Joao Felix as well as Real Madrid duo Raphael Varane and Isco were rumoured to be potential targets.

Premier League pair Ryan Sessegnon and Romelu Lukaku are also thought to be on the Old Lady's radar.
