Liverpool make major breakthrough in race to sign Nabil Fekir

The Reds have reached an agreement for the France worldwide and a medical will take place tomorrow, according to French newspaper L'Equipe.

The Lyon star has been heavily linked with the Reds since the end of last season, and it looked likely that any deal wouldn't be complete until after the World Cup. Fekir is set to play for France on Saturday evening against the United States of America, a game that will take place in Lyon's Stade des Lumieres.

But Aulas has revealed that the transfer is not close and is unlikely to happen before the start of the World Cup next Thursday.

Liverpool have already signed Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m this summer, while Naby Keita is also arriving after a deal was agreed with RB Leipzig last summer.

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.

Donald Trump Denounces Rumors About Melania Trump's Absence
The White House offered few updates on the first lady's condition, and this week, her office lashed out at journalists for asking. Trump underwent a kidney procedure and recuperated in the hospital for five days, according to the White House .

Fekir is expected to leave his boyhood club this summer has reportedly told Lyon that he would prefer a move to Liverpool.

Aulas' comments had cast doubt over the deal, with the notoriously hard 69-year-old telling Lyon's official website: "The record is at a standstill, there is no way forward".

"The whole thing will certainly not be completed during the World Cup, and I don't think anything will change before it".

"We have not set a base price because we have not discussed this yet". But his determination to join Klopp's team and Liverpool's willingness to go to €60m appears to have altered the stance of the Lyon president.
