Lyon ready to sell Nabil Fekir to Liverpool

Liverpool transfer news Malcom decision revealed after'very attractive request

The Reds see the 24-year-old as a replacement for Philippe Coutinho, capable of playing as an attacking central midfielder or, if needed, as part of the forward line.

Following the 2017/18 campaign, whereby Liverpool barely missed out on winning the Champions League, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has initiated a summer recruitment drive with the intention of significantly strengthening both the club's starting lineup up and increasing their squad depth.

Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are also reportedly interested in the French worldwide - but Liverpool are now in the driving seat.

Fekir has also been linked with Chelsea and Bayern Munich, with Lyon hoping yet more clubs will join the race for the attacker as they seek to realise the maximum possible price from his sale.

That is the revelation made by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas following reports that the Reds were closing in on the playmaker.

Fekir is understood to be keen to move to Merseyside, and there is an acceptance at Lyon that he will be leaving the club this summer.

Therefore, Game 3 might depend on whether or not he can provide offense for Cleveland alongside James, Love and company. That gives all of us a lot of confidence that he can come in and make an impact".

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

Despite this, Goal understands Liverpool believe a deal can be thrashed out before Fekir flies to Russian Federation with his national team this weekend.

However, Fekir has never started a competitive match for France so is unlikely to be a key player at the 2018 World Cup.

Liverpool are also now being linked with Stoke City's Xherdan Shaqiri and The Independent state that the Reds "are primed to seal at least one new signing in the next 24 hours".

Shaqiri, 26, has a release clause of just £12m after Stoke were relegated to the Championship.
