Liverpool make major breakthrough in race to sign Nabil Fekir

Lyon have rubbished "false" media reports that club captain Nabil Fekir is set to sign for Liverpool.

The France global has become a top target for Jurgen Klopp's side, and Goal understands the Merseyside club are hopeful of wrapping up his transfer before he leaves for the 2018 World Cup.

Numerous forwards have been linked with a move to Anfield, but reports of an agreement with Lyon for the transfer of Fekir began to intensify on Thursday, with some even suggesting an announcement was expected within 24 hours.

"Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media about the transfer of Nabil Faulkner to the Liverpool club".

He gave Canada and Mexico exemptions in hopes of bolstering the on-going NAFTA negotiations between the three countries. The state is the top pork-producing state in the United States and Mexico is its main export market by volume.

The Reds are reportedly eager to get a deal over the line before Fekir, 24, travels to Russian Federation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with France, and RMC reported a medical took place Thursday night (h/t Liverpool Echo). The Guardian's Andy Hunter wrote Liverpool representatives were already present at France's training base in Clairefontaine, ready to perform a medical with the player before signing terms.

Fekir's proposed arrival would be the latest ambitious statement from the Champions League finalists after the £39m signing of Brazilian midfielder Fabinho from Monaco, and with Naby Keita arriving from RB Leipzig in July in a deal worth £52.75m.

"He is a very good player, of global level". "That is the most important thing but on the flip side to that, if players say they want to leave, then I want to work with players that want to be at the club".

Fekir, who scored 23 times in 40 games as Lyon finished third in Ligue 1, is contracted to the club until 2020. "If he comes, it will be good too".
