That's according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, who thinks Fekir will be tempted to wait in case he stars at the World Cup.

"He is a very good player, of worldwide level", Fabinho said.

The Frenchman is set to become Liverpool's second signing of the summer following the £44m purchase of Monaco ace Fabinho.

He played just 17 minutes in their World Cup qualifying campaign. "Real Madrid or Barcelona might come in for me".

Lyon's hope that some strong performances at the World Cup might trigger a bidding war, or a significant increase in Fekir's valuation, are offset by the player's desire to link up with Jurgen Klopp and his squad.




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.

There had been concerns for Liverpool fans that the transfer negotiations could grind to a halt after Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas claimed that the transfer was "at a standstill" earlier on Thursday.

But Express Sports still understands Liverpool are set to complete a £53million deal for Lyon ace Fekir today.

An agreement with Naby Keita of RB Leipzig was struck this time a year ago, while Monaco midfielder Fabinho has moved to Anfield as well.

That would make the France global one of the highest earners at Liverpool. But a financial package between £48m and £53m will land Fekir.
