Lyon winger ‘flattered’ by links with Liverpool

In-form Lyon winger Maxwell Cornet says that links with Liverpool are “flattering”.

The Ivory Coast international has ended the season with five goals in six Ligue Un games as Lyon have sealed third place.

His Lyon contract does not expire until 2021 but there is speculation that he could leave the club this summer, with Liverpool linked with him as well as just about every other Lyon player after scouts watched them throughout the season.

Cornet was linked with a move to Watford in January but he has since established himself in the Lyon first team, though the French club has not met his demands for a new deal.

“I did not say I wanted to leave,” he told beIN Sports France. “We met the president in January and I said I wanted to extend, but talks were not successful.

“Liverpool are a big club, any links are flattering. I’m under contract until 2021, but you never know in football so we’ll see.”
