Liverpool closing in on Nabil Fekir deal with Lyon

Liverpool are pushing to get a deal done to sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir before he departs for the World Cup with France, Sky sources understand.

Fekir will be given permission to leave France's World Cup training base and could undergo his medical on Merseyside on Friday.

It had been reported that the Frenchman would complete his move to Anfield before the tournament kicks off in Russian Federation, but Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas today (Thursday) said that it was far from a done deal.

Aulas' comments had cast doubt over the deal, with the notoriously hard 69-year-old telling Lyon's official website: "The record is at a standstill, there is no way forward".

Facebook shared 14M users’ private posts with entire world
The company's chief privacy officer shared a very brief statement , "We'd like to apologize for this mistake". Facebook estimates that 14 million users are affected by the glitch, and is notifying them of it.


Fekir's proposed arrival would be the latest ambitious statement from the Champions League finalists after the £39m signing of Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco, and with Naby Keita arriving from RB Leipzig in July in a deal worth £52.75m.

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

Les Bleus will take on the United States this weekend, in their final World Cup tune-up.

'We haven't set a starting price because we haven't discussed that yet'. The club have also been reported as having in an interest in Roma goalkeeper Alisson Becker as well as Xherdan Shaqiri, who was relegated with Stoke at the end of last season.
