Liverpool are close to completing a £52m deal with Lyon for French midfielder Nabil Fekir before the 24-year-old heads for World Cup duty.

Liverpool are hoping that their latest bid of £48m, plus £4m in add-ons, will be enough to secure the playmaker's signature before France's final warm-up fixture against the United States tomorrow.

The club's medical staff are on alert, ready to travel to Paris to complete the formalities.

Fekir is the player Liverpool want to fill the No 10 role left vacant by Philippe Coutinho's January move to Barcelona.

With Brazilian Fabinho already signed to replace Emre Can, Fekir's arrival would complete the bulk of Jurgen Klopp's incoming transfer activity.

He would still like a goalkeeper but the extravagant price for Roma's Alisson does not make it a certainty Klopp will get his prime target in this window.

Liverpool's manager may be more eager to allow Loris Karius to rehabilitate than many imagine, and there will be an opportunity for Danny Ward to push his first-team claims.
