Liverpool transfer news LIVE Fekir deal latest Oblak enquiry Salah to Barcelona claim

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has suggested that any Liverpool deal for Nabil Fekir will have to wait.

There is no deal yet in place between the relevant parties, but Liverpool are expected to try to finalise an agreement before Saturday.

Liverpool have remained determined to wrap up the deal before the World Cup gets underway and now it appears that they have been successful, with the deal set to be confirmed on Friday.

The 24-year-old is part of the France squad for the upcoming World Cup.

"Nothing has happened", he told the French club's official website on Thursday. "The deal will certainly not be closed during the World Cup and I don't think there will be any change before the World Cup".

'We haven't set a starting price because we haven't discussed that yet'.

The cancelation also cuts into the time senators have to campaign for incumbent seats in mid-term elections, Politico reported. McConnell made a decision to shorten the recess "due to historic obstruction by Senate Democrats of the president's nominees".

However, L'Equipe have offered Liverpool fans a boost before the global tournament that kicks off next week, with the French outlet claiming that a deal is very close to being complete.

In an interview given to RMC shortly after signing for Liverpool, Fabinho praised Fekir, saying it would be "good" if he joined him on Merseyside.

Bayern Munich and Atlético Madrid have also been linked with Fekir, who can operate in a number of forward roles and would in effect be Philippe Coutinho's replacement at Anfield.

The attacker scored 18 goals and provided eight assists in 28 Ligue 1 starts for Lyon this past season, according to WhoScored.

The France global will become Liverpool's second signing of the summer after the arrival of Fabinho from Monaco.
