  • Nabil Fekir Liverpool Lyon transfer news

If reports from the Mirror are to be believed, Liverpool are hoping that the French club would agree to sell Fekir for a fee of around £50 million.

The 24-year-old is expected to finalise his mega-money switch on Friday afternoon once he has completed a medical at Clairefontaine, the France national team's training base.

Jean-Michel Aulas, the Lyon president, told his club's website on Thursday that the deal was "at a standstill" and unlikely to be concluded before the World Cup.

However, L'Equipe have offered Liverpool fans a boost before the worldwide tournament that kicks off next week, with the French outlet claiming that a deal is very close to being complete.

"The [transfer] will certainly not close during the World Cup and I do not think there is any change before the World Cup".

Liverpool have already signed the defensive midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m and Naby Keita will arrive from Red Bull Leipzig this summer for £52.75m. Fekir is set to play for France on Saturday evening against the United States of America, a game that will take place in Lyon's Stade des Lumieres.

Fekir's agent has confirmed Liverpool are interested in signing the Lyon midfielder but also warned a deal was far from done earlier this week.

The Reds are also considering whether to active the £12m release clause in Xherdan Shaqiri's contract as he is poised to leave Stoke City following their relegation to the Championship.
