The Lyon captain has informed his boyhood club of his preference for Anfield and the deal is expected to be finalised before the 24-year-old heads to the World Cup.

Liverpool are confident of closing in on a transfer for Nabil Fekir, a source has told ESPN FC, despite Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas stating he was adamant no deal would be done before the World Cup.

Fekir is due to undergo a Liverpool medical at Clairefontaine, the France national team's training base, before signing terms on Friday.
