President Jean-Michel Aulas earlier said the transfer is at a 'standstill'

Liverpool have agreed a £57.1m move for Nabil Fekir, according to reports in France.

The news came despite Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas saying earlier in the day that the deal would NOT go through until after the World Cup.

French newspaper L’Equipe are reporting that the France international will need to have a medical on Friday to complete a move worth €65m and another €7m in add-on clauses.

Lyon also released a video on social media that said: “Nabil Fekir [transfer] will not close before or during the World Cup.”

But it appears the club have changed their stance, with Fekir himself setting his eyes only on Liverpool despite interest from Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid.

Didier Deschamps’ France squad remain in France in their pre-World Cup training camp.

They face the United States in their final warm-up game on Saturday and head out to Russia after that.

Fekir, 24, scored 23 goals and added nine assists for Lyon last season.

He usually plays in the No 10 role, but can also play on the right wing or as a more traditional striker.

Fekir’s imminent arrival makes Liverpool’s attack, who scored over 90 goals between them last season, even more exciting.

The French playmaker is an absolute bargain on Dream Team World Cup this summer too at just £3m.

Is he in your side?
