Lyon chairman Aulas hands Liverpool huge blow in Fekir pursuit

Nabil Fekir

The 24-year-old has interest from a number of clubs but is known to be interested in joining up with Jurgen Klopp and his Champions League finalists.

The Liverpool Echo are also reporting that Liverpool are closing in on the signature for Fekir, who has scored 57 goals in 153 appearances for Lyon during his career.

But Liverpool have dug deep and agreed a fee with Lyon, with the Reds reportedly paying an initial £48m to take him to Anfield.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has ruled out finding a resolution before the World Cup begins, though, saying the deal is at a "standstill". Fekir is set to play for France on Saturday evening against the US, a game that will take place in Lyon's Stade des Lumieres.

Shooting in Bray sees three men seriously injured this morning
The boxing gym was founded by Katie Taylor's dad Pete Taylor and is home to a number of up and coming Irish boxers. The shooting took place outside the Bray Boxing Club on Harbour Road at around 6.55am on Tuesday morning.

The Independent report that Aulas believes that Liverpool will have to calculate the potential of summer performance into their offer. Liverpool, however, continued to press ahead with negotiations and appear to have broken Aulas's resolve to keep the attacking midfielder until after the World Cup in the hope of starting an auction.

He played just 17 minutes in their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Could he do the same with Fekir and Shaqiri?

Klopp moved rapidly to sign Fabinho from Monaco for £43.7m at the end of May. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment below.
