Liverpool have agreed on a fee with Lyon for the transfer of coveted attacker Nabil Fékir, with a medical expected to take place on Friday.

The Liverpool Echo report that the two clubs have finally hashed out a deal for the Frenchman, with a medical expected to take place on Friday.

A fee has yet to be revealed, although it is rumoured that Liverpool will have to pay around €65m (£57m approx) to make Fékir their second summer signing.

Fékir will join new recruit Fabinho who joined last week from AS Monaco and will also join Naby Keïta when he finally becomes a Red on July 1st.

This news will be music to the ears of Liverpool fans as the man touted as the long-term Coutinho replacement looks finally set to don the famous red jersey and call Anfield his new home.

What’s more, it looks like the deal could be wrapped up before the World Cup, ensuring Klopp beats any suitors who could potentially take a shine to Fékir should he have a stellar tournament in Russia.

It looks set to be a landmark summer for Liverpool, with FSG clearly fully invested into Klopp’s vision for the club, and Europe’s top talent quite clearly fond of a move to Merseyside after a second consecutive fourth place finish and coming agonisingly close to a sixth Champions League trophy in Kiev.

These are clearly exciting times for fans and players involved with Liverpool and it looks like it could just be the beginning of a busy summer for The Reds.
