Liverpool FC are closing in on a deal to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon, according to reports in France.

French outlet Canal Plus, as quoted by Metro, is reporting that the Reds are close to tying up a big-money deal to bring the 24-year-old to Anfield this summer.

Liverpool FC have already quickly got their summer transfer business under way by concluding a deal to bring Brazilian midfielder Fabinho to Anfield last month.

Now, the Reds are believed to be closing in on a deal to bring Fekir to Anfield.

According to the same story, Fekir himself is keen on a move to Merseyside and he wants to have his future resolved before the start of the World Cup in Russia later this month.

The same story says that Fekir is expected to cost around £70m, which would make him the club’s second most expensive signing after Virgil van Dijk.

Liverpool FC are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Jurgen Klopp looks to assemble a team capable of challenging for the Premier League title next season.

The Reds finished fourth and without a trophy last season after they lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid.
