Liverpool and Lyon have finally reached an agreement over the transfer of Nabil Fekir to Anfield according to French newspaper L'Equipe.

Should Fekir arrive, it will mark Liverpool's second signing of the season following Brazilian defensive midfielder Fabinho who moved from Monaco for £43.7 million a week ago.

The Liverpool Echo report that the two clubs have finally hashed out a deal for the Frenchman, with a medical expected to take place on Friday.

Fekir has also drawn interest from Chelsea and Bayern Munich, but Liverpool have been aggressive in chasing his signature.

Reports suggests Fekir is now valued at around £60m by Lyon.
