The latest on Nabil Fekir transfer as Lyon deny agreement

However, Lyon dismissed the rumours, highlighting gossip amid the transfer window.

Lyon have denied claims Liverpool have agreed a deal to sign star midfielder Nabil Fekir and dubbed the rumours "false" after it was reported he completed a medical with the Premier League giants on Friday.

The 24-year-old midfielder has agreed personal terms and has undergone a medical at France's Clairefontaine training facilities while on global duty.

The end result looks certain to be Fekir moving to Liverpool, but Aulas is clearly keen to make sure he controls the timing of that announcement.

Lyon, however, have issued a statement on Twitter saying that this media information is "false".

"Olympique Lyonnais categorically denies the false information disseminated by many media outlets about the transfer of Nabil Fekir to Liverpool".

Klopp is looking to finally fill the void left behind by Philippe Coutinho following his move to Barcelona in January and Fekir caught the eye after providing 23 goals and 8 assists last season.

Nabil Fekir was expected to be announced as a Liverpool player on Friday, but that could now be in jeopardy.

The newspaper says Fekir is due to undergo his medical at Clairefontaine, the France national team's training base, today before signing his contract and becoming Liverpool's third major signing of the summer.

Hunter specified the deal will be worth an initial €55 million (£48.3 million) plus an additional €5 million (£4.3 million) in add-ons, recalling that Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had said on Thursday talks were "at a standstill".
