Liverpool expect to wrap-up a £60m deal to sign Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir before the World Cup kicks-off in Russia next week, according to a report by TeamTalk.
Fekir has emerged as one of Liverpool’s top summer transfer targets as Jurgen Klopp looks to finally fill the void left behind by Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona in January.
The 24-year-old was one of the most prolific playmakers in Europe last season having provided 23 goals and 8 assists in all competitions for Lyon to earn a place in the French World Cup squad.
Widespread speculation suggests that Liverpool have been in talks with the Ligue 1 outfit trying to thrash out a deal and Fekir’s agent confirmed earlier this week that the Reds are looking to sign his client.
It looks like Liverpool are pushing forward with their attempts to sign Fekir as TeamTalk are now citing a report from Express Sport who claim the Merseysiders expect to get a £60m deal wrapped-up before the World Cup starts next week.
These claims are supported by French publication SFR Sport, via TeamTalk, who state that Lyon are already planning for life without Fekir as they’ve lined-up Houssem Aouar as his replacement.
So it looks like the next few days are going to be pivotal as Liverpool race against time to get a deal for Fekir sealed before he has to fly out to Russia with the French squad.
We’ll have to wait and see how talks progress but Fekir would be an excellent signing for Liverpool if they could get a deal over the line as although he’s predominantly a central attacking midfielder he’s also able to play out wide if needed.
If the Frenchman does join Liverpool this summer he’ll form a new-look midfield alongside Fabinho and Naby Keita following their big-money moves to Anfield from Monaco and RB Leipzig.
