Nabil Fekir is flying into Liverpool today to discuss personal terms and hopefully pass a medical, claims French journalist Romain Collet-Gaudin.
He recently sent out a tweet which translates as follows:
and his agent Jean-Pierre should fly this Sunday 03/06/2018, to to settle the final details of the transfer of the French international. If all goes well, he’ll undergo a medical, too!

We’ve reached out to Collet-Gaudin, who works for Canal+ and EuroSport for further detail, and he told us that Fekir is desperate to seal an Anfield switch.
The 24-year-old will add guile, flair and creativity to our midfield, replacing Coutinho, who left for Barcelona in January.
Liverpool’s sporting director Michael Edwards is doing increasingly impressive work in the transfer market.
Not only did he get a deal for Virgil van Dijk over the line mid-season, but bought Mo Salah, Andy Robertson and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain last summer – while securing Naby Keita and Fabinho this.
Once the Fekir transfer is done, another goalkeeper, preferably a world-class one, will be a priority.
