Liverpool are closing in on hiring the services of Nabil Fekir from Ligue 1 side Lyon as per reports going in the media.
Today, renowned French source Le Parisien (press image at the bottom of the article) have covered a story and claimed that as per their own information, Liverpool’s agreement with Lyon is worth €60million in total (€55million fee and €5million worth of bonuses).
Moreover, the French source have also mentioned that the Les Bleus star and Liverpool have agreed on a five year contract that will make the player earn around €700,000-a-month (€42million in five years).
The 24-year-old attacker’s sale will be the biggest in Lyon’s history, surpassing the €53million deal (excluding bonuses) that took Lacazette to Arsenal last year.
Fekir should become Liverpool’s third signing of the summer after Fabinho and Keita, who are set to make their moves official on July 1.
The Reds let go star playmaker Philippe Coutinho in the winter transfer window and Fekir would be the one to replace the Brazilian magician. Last season, the former Inter Milan playmaker directly contributed in 20 goals in as many games for the Merseysiders before opting to join Barca.
We can expect Fekir to start as the most advanced midfielder in Jurgen Klopp’s 4-3-3 formation at Anfield.
