As per the latest reports (translated by Daily Mirror), the move is close to completion and the Lyon captain will cost the Reds around £60 million.
Jurgen Klopp is looking to add more creativity to his side and the French international would be the perfect addition. Fekir could be the ideal long-term replacement for Coutinho.
Apparently, Fekir’s move to Liverpool is ‘99% done’ and the player has played his final game for Lyon on Saturday.
The 24-year-old midfielder can play in a number of positions and he will be a massive upgrade on the likes of Lallana.
Fekir can play out wide, in the advanced midfield roles and as a false nine.
The Frenchman has scored 23 goals for Lyon this season and he has picked up 9 assists as well.
Jurgen Klopp’s high-intensity style of play should suit the Lyon star and it will be interesting to see how quickly he manages to adapt to English football.
