Lyon ready to sell Nabil Fekir to Liverpool

Lyon ready to sell Nabil Fekir to Liverpool

The Reds were hoping to get a deal done before the World Cup kicks off, but the selling party are not interested.

"Liverpool's interest exists, but for the moment nothing is done and other clubs could come in".

According to the Mirror, Aulas has indicated that he is prepared to allow the 24-year-old to leave Lyon for Liverpool, but only for the right price, although some common ground on the transfer fee will still have to be found.

Lyon President was hoping for Nabil Fekir's good performances for France in Russian Federation will drive up his price.

Fekir is wanted by Liverpool, who have already failed with an offer to sign him and are scrambling to put a deal in place before he heads to Russian Federation with the France squad.

It’s time now to put faith on Kinder Morgan, Inc. (KMI)
The pipeline company reported $0.17 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, missing the consensus estimate of $0.18 by $0.01. It increased, as 74 investors sold KMI shares while 305 reduced holdings. 108 funds opened positions while 266 raised stakes.

Despite this, Goal understands Liverpool believe a deal can be thrashed out before Fekir flies to Russian Federation with his national team this weekend.

It had been reported that the Frenchman would complete his move to Anfield before the tournament kicks off in Russian Federation, but Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas today (Thursday) said that it was far from a done deal. Now the President has conceded a possible bidding war for the star attacker and will seemingly accept his departure to Liverpool, but only if the Reds match his asking price.

Throughout the 2017/18 camapign, Fekir made a total of 40 appearances across all competitions, notching a total of 23 goals and assisting a further eight as Lyon finished third in Ligue 1.

Jurgen Klopp has ordered Liverpool to buy more attacking options, with Mohamed Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane bearing the majority of the goalscoring responsibility.

Fekir displayed his skillset in the No.10 role as well as excelling in the role that Roberto Firmino now occupies at Liverpool.
