He said: “I did not say I wanted to leave. We met the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] in January, and I said I wanted to extend [my contract], 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.”

Cornet has played well for the French club this season, and in the wing position, he has scored 12 goals and provided five key assists.

The Ivorian international just at the age of 22 is one of the talented players through Lyon’s youth system and breaking into the first team in recent years after being bought by the French club Menz when he was a teenager and has impressed so far.
