Liverpool want Nabil Fekir deal done before World Cup


Olympique Lyon have indicated that they would let their play-maker Nabil Fekir join this year's UEFA Champions League runners-up, Liverpool, if the right fee is paid.

"Talks between the clubs could conclude on Friday about a deal that may amount to 60m euros", reported the BBC.

Liverpool have wasted no time in strengthening their midfield ranks having already signed Fabinho from Monaco and Naby Keita Red Bull Leipzig.

But Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas earlier said the deal would NOT go through until after the World Cup.

Fekir will be given permission to leave France's World Cup training base and could undergo his medical on Merseyside on Friday.

New study says women with early stage breast cancer can avoid chemotherapy
A high recurrence score, above 25, means chemo is advised to ward off a recurrence while a low score, below 10, means it is not. Thousands of breast cancer patients may be safely spared gruelling chemotherapy following a landmark study.

And the Mirror now say the Reds are confident the 24-year-old will be confirmed as a Liverpool player before the weekend. The case won't certainly be resolved during the World Cup and I do not think that there will be changes before (the WC). "We haven't set a price tag because we haven't discussed this [Fekir's transfer] yet".

The Independent report that Aulas believes that Liverpool will have to calculate the potential of summer performance into their offer.

Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid are also reportedly interested in the French worldwide - but Liverpool are now in the driving seat.

A fourth transfer could soon be on the cards with reports claiming a £12m deal for Stoke's Xherdan Shaqiri could be in the pipeline.
