Liverpool are determined to sign Nabil Fekir and hope to conclude a deal by the end of next week, according to the Daily Mirror.
However, there has been no formal bid from the Reds for Lyon’s £50m-rated French midfielder.
According to the paper…
“the Lyon attacking midfielder has met with his club president Jean-Michel Aulas to make clear he wants a move to Anfield…and would like his future decided before the World Cup starts.
That is Liverpool’s aim as they look to strike a deal, with Sporting Director Michael Edwards keen to pursue formal discussions in the next week.
Lyon president Aulas will not stand in the way of the move, but he has insisted the French club are in no hurry to negotiate, with the club in a strong financial position.
Aulas believes, with Fekir a likely France starter at the World Cup, it could increase his value, but Liverpool will push hard in the next few days in the hope of convincing Lyon.”
