However, Fekir has his heart set on Anfield and Lyon have agreed to let him leave for Liverpool.

Fekir is a prime target of Liverpool's this summer and the club are willing to offer Lyon €55 million plus up to another €5m in add-ons as they look to strengthen their options in the final third of the pitch.

The report flies in the face of recent comments from Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, who claimed that the two clubs are unlikely to hold further talks over the transfer before the World Cup. 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. "The deal is at a standstill".

'The whole thing will certainly not be completed during the World Cup, and I don't think anything will change before it.
