Lyon president reveals Nabil Fekir's transfer to join Liverpool is not close

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

There had been concerns for Liverpool fans that the transfer negotiations could grind to a halt after Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas claimed that the transfer was "at a standstill" earlier on Thursday.

"Talks between the clubs could conclude on Friday about a deal that may amount to 60m euros", reported the BBC.

Liverpool could complete the signing of key summer target Nabil Fekir in the next 48 hours, with the Frenchman set for a medical on Friday. "The deal will certainly not be closed during the World Cup and I don't think there will be any change before the World Cup".

Liverpool have wasted no time in strengthening their midfield ranks having already signed Fabinho from Monaco and Naby Keita Red Bull Leipzig.

"He added: "[We] have not set a base price because we have not discussed this yet". Didier Deschamps' side play their final World Cup warm-up game against the U.S. in Lyon on Saturday and the manager had instructed his squad to settle any outstanding transfer business before flying to Russian Federation.

The France worldwide will become Liverpool's second signing of the summer after the arrival of Fabinho from Monaco.

Reports on Wednesday also suggested that Liverpool were giving serious thought to activating the relegation release clause in Xherdan Shaqiri's contract at Stoke City.
