Anfield officials will continue negotiations on Friday, increasingly hopeful of a deal before the 24-year-old heads for World Cup duty.

Liverpool and Lyon have agreed a deal over the transfer of Nabil Fekir, according to L'Equipe.

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.

However, Fekir has never started a competitive match for France so is unlikely to be a key player at the 2018 World Cup.

Didier Deschamps' team play the United States in Lyon on Saturday in their final warm-up game before the finals.

Liverpool have wasted no time in strengthening their midfield ranks having already signed Fabinho from Monaco and Naby Keita Red Bull Leipzig.

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.

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 deal will certainly not be closed during the World Cup and I don't think there will be any change before the World Cup".

"He added: "[We] have not set a base price because we have not discussed this yet".

"Liverpool's interest exists, but for now nothing is done".
