Following the news that Liverpool were hopeful of signing Lyon's Nabil Fekir before the World Cup, it's now being reported by that the deal will be sealed on Friday.
Earlier in the day, Aulas had said in quotes published on Lyon's website that no deal for Fekir will be completed before or during the World Cup, in which the versatile attacking midfielder will be appearing.
But L'Equipe claim that an agreement has been reached and Fekir's transfer is likely to be announced before the weekend.
The France worldwide will need to have a medical on Friday to complete a move worth €65m and another €7m in add-on clauses.
The France worldwide will undergo a medical at the club's Melwood training ground on Friday, according to L'Equipe.
"The deal is at a standstill".
The same article states that Fekir would be a natural replacement for Philippe Coutinho after the Brazil global completed a £142m move to FC Barcelona in the January transfer window. The case won't certainly be resolved during the World Cup and I do not think that there will be changes before (the WC).
"Then there price goes up and Liverpool behind the scenes are trying to sign Fekir before the World Cup".
