Medical today? Lyon dispute French claims of scheduled Liverpool visit

Liverpool transfer news Nabil Fekir has been tipped to head to Anfield

The Lyon captain is the Reds' primary target as they seek to add creativity to their attacking midfield options.

The France worldwide had not been expected to finalise a switch to Merseyside before the end of this summer's World Cup.

The Reds look poised to secure the France forward before he heads to the World Cup in Russian Federation.

Liverpool are mindful of the dangers of letting the situation drag on throughout the summer, especially given the possibility of France going deep in the tournament.

According to French newspaper L'Equipe, the Reds have agreed a deal worth £57 million (€65 million) for the 24-year-old and he will have a medical on Friday.

The German goalkeeper has been with Leverkusen since 2011 but they have now signed Lukas Hradecky from Frankfurt and thus Leno might no longer been the first choice custodian anymore.
