  • Nabil Fekir Liverpool Lyon transfer news

Liverpool FC have been given the green light to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon at the right price, according to a report in England.

But Liverpool have dug deep and agreed a fee with Lyon, with the Reds reportedly paying an initial £48m to take him to Anfield. "This transfer window can be long".

The 28-year-old has only featured in 18 matches for the Saints in the last two seasons and could join a long-list of former Southampton players who have joined the Merseyside club.

Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas is notoriously hard to negotiate with but he's reportedly had a change of heart just days before the World Cup kicks off.

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".

But Express Sports still understands Liverpool are set to complete a £53million deal for Lyon ace Fekir today.

And Liverpool are keen to close the deal before Fekir jets off to Russian Federation following France's final warm-up friendly against the United States on Saturday. "The deal will certainly not be closed during the World Cup and I don't think there will be any change before the World Cup".

Liverpool have already signed the defensive midfielder Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m and Naby Keita will arrive from Red Bull Leipzig this summer for £52.75m.

Jurgen Klopp is also weighing up whether to trigger Xherdan Shaqiri's £12m release clause following Stoke City's relegation from the Premier League.
