Liverpool have been trying to lure French international and Lyon star Nabil Fekir for quite some time and the latest reports are very positive for the Anfield faithful.
According to Mirror Sport, the Reds have made a breakthrough with the Ligue 1 side as the Les Bleus attacking midfielder has himself indicated that he only wants to agree a move to Liverpool. Now, Lyon president, Jean-Michel Aulas, has conceded that he will do a deal with the Merseysiders but the price should be right.
The British source have mentioned that Lyon have not named a price as yet but the five time European champions are hoping that the deal will not pass much beyond £50million. It is further mentioned that Fekir is said to be 100% decided on playing for Liverpool next season.
Few days ago, The Independent reported that Lyon want to get around 70 million euros (£61.5million) for their prized asset.
The 24-year-old attacking star directly contributed in 31 goals in 40 appearances (all competitions) in the last campaign. Fekir could be the one to finally replace Brazilian playmaker Coutinho at Anfield. The Brazilian star left the Reds to join Barca in the winter transfer window.
As per Mirror Sport, Liverpool will try hard to reach an agreement with the French club before the start of the World Cup. On the other hand, Fekir is happy to wait for the completion of the competition after getting the approval that he will be sold from the Lyon president.
Here is how Fekir might look in a Liverpool shirt.
