Olympique Lyonnais forward has been heavily linked with a move to Anfield, and the 2017/18 UEFA Champions League runners-up are reportedly closing on a £53million bargain, with Liverpool medical staff on standby.
The Reds manager Jurgen Klopp has been widely scouting the 24-year-old over the past season, and it appears just as his plans are coming to fruition with reports proposing the Nabil Fekir is set to undergo a medical.
The France international is as of now on international duty ahead of the summer World Cup in Russia, but Liverpool are so keen to wrap up the transfer and secure his signature before the Mundial commences on June 14.
Meanwhile, Fekir’s deal had ”reached a halt” as indicated by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas prior this week. However, both parties are presently anxious to round up the dal, with Lyon having acknowledged that Fekir’svalue may not increase over the World Cup.
According to ‘Liverpool Echo’, the Reds have medical staff on standby in France should the need to complete an assessment abruptly present itself.
Klopp has been exceptionally proactive in reinforcing his squad ahead of next season, having just secured the services of Monaco’s Fabinho and RB Leipzig’s Naby Keita and wanting to sign Stoke City’s Xherdan Shaqiri.
