Liverpool closing in on Nabil Fekir deal with Lyon

Liverpool closing in on Nabil Fekir deal with Lyon

The French newspaper are reporting that both sides are now eager for a deal to be done before France fly out to Russian Federation this weekend with a fee of 65 millions Euros the reported price tag.

Fekir will take his medical on Friday, and it is now expected that the transfer will be completed before France leave for the World Cup.

And Liverpool's signing of the striker, who will undergo a medical this Friday in Liverpool before the move is officially announced, could be absolutely key to the summer transfer market.

L'Equipe says the Reds have agreed a £57.1million deal for Fekir.

Talks have been ongoing, but a power play emerged from Lyon's side, with president Jean-Michel Aulas hoping to lure other bidders into the reckoning.

Round two was finished early on day three, with the cut-line unchanged and Ko sneaking into the back half of the major tournament. The 22-year-old from Thailand carried a four-stroke lead into the final round, but needed a play-off to overcome Kim Hyo-joo.

It looks set to be a landmark summer for Liverpool, with FSG clearly fully invested into Klopp's vision for the club, and Europe's top talent quite clearly fond of a move to Merseyside after a second consecutive fourth place finish and coming agonisingly close to a sixth Champions League trophy in Kiev.

The 24-year-old attacking midfielder has been identified by Jurgen Klopp as Philippe Coutinho's natural replacement.

"We haven't set a starting price because we haven't discussed that yet".

Liverpool are looking to clinch the £60 million (€68m/$80m) signing of Nabil Fekir before he heads off to the World Cup with France. They have also registered interest in Xherdan Shaqiri, who is available for £12m-£13.5m after Stoke City's relegation from the Premier League.
