Liverpool FC are on the verge of completing the signing of Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer, according to reports in France.

The Daily Mirror is quoting unnamed sources in the French media as saying that the Reds are “99 per cent” close to signing the 24-year-old for a fee believed to be worth around £60m.

Liverpool FC have been strongly linked with a move for Fekir in recent days as Jurgen Klopp looks to assemble a squad capable of winning the Premier League title next season.

The attacker has been in fine form for his French club this season and scored 18 goals in 30 Ligue 1 games for Lyon this term.

He has also notched up nine assists in all competitions for the French side.

Fekir has long been linked with a move to the Premier League and he was touted as a target for Arsenal in recent transfer windows.

And it now appears that he could be set to play his football at Anfield next season, if the reports in France are to be believed.

Liverpool FC are currently preparing for their crunch Champions League final showdown against Real Madrid on Saturday night.
