Reports: Liverpool Set To Complete Deal For France Attacker

UEFA Champions League runners-up Liverpool are reportedly on the verge of completing the signing of a France forward, who will be participating at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Liverpool's Interest In France Star Confirmed

According to BBC Sport, the Merseyside club are close to agreeing a deal for Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir, who is also being closely watched by the likes of Chelsea and FC Barcelona.

The 24-year-old is one of Reds manager Jurgen Klopp's primary transfer targets in this window, and the player is apparently set on moving to Anfield.

Fekir is due to fly to Russia with France's World Cup squad after their friendly against USA on Saturday, and it is believed the English side would like the deal to be announced before then.

French publication L'Equipe has suggested that the transfer fee could be between £48.35 million and £52.75 million (R842 million and R919 million), plus a maximum of £4.4 million (R76.6 million) in add-ons.

The Frenchman's expected arrival would be Klopp's second signing of this window after landing Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco last week.

Reports: Salah Offered To Barca

Fekir made 40 appearances for Lyon last season, scoring 23 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
