Loris Karius: Liverpool keeper deserves second chance says Grobbelaar

Nabil Fekir is set to undergo his medical with Liverpool as his agent flies-in to England to finalise a £60m move from Lyon today, according to reports in France via the Daily Star.

"But I will be clear, we will go with Nabil to Liverpool or elsewhere when there is an agreement with Lyon and if [owner] Jean-Michel Aulas gives the green light".

Ironically, Fekir could next be in action in his home stadium; France's final warm-up match before the World Cup begins is against United States at the Groupama Stadium, Lyon's ground.

He went further and said that president Jean-Michel Aulas want to wait until after the World Cup finals, which might increase the fee they can charge Liverpool.

'The window will be long'.

Eurosport and Canal Plus sports journalist and soon to be Liverpool hero Romain Collet-Gaudin has tweeted that a deal between the attacker and the Merseyside club is close, just a medical to be had. We could do with a player like Fekir to help link our midfield and attack, which were disjointed last term, but it doesn't look like he'll be moving to Stamford Bridge, despite our reported interest.

"I would be amazed if there are not other big clubs interested, but Liverpool are slowly making their way back not only to the top of the English game, but the top of the European game".

Speaking about the recent speculation linking Fekir with a move to Liverpool, the player's agent said, "I did not leave Marseille (this weekend)".

Liverpool have already completed one signing this summer, with Fabinho joining from Monaco earlier this week. Have your say in the comments section below.
