Liverpool will reportedly finalise a £60m move for Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir after this weekend's Champions League final against Real Madrid.
Reports in France earlier this week suggested that a deal to take the 24-year-old to Anfield is now "99% complete".
According to The Mirror, Liverpool will get a transfer over the line next week, kickstarting a big summer of spending for manager Jurgen Klopp.
Fekir played a direct part in 27 goals across his 30 outings this term, helping Lyon to seal a spot in the Champions League and in the process earning links to a number of heavyweight clubs.
Les Gones' president Jean Michel Aulas had been reluctant to offload his prized asset, but Liverpool have forced his hand by offering £60m and now hope to have the France international in their ranks by this time next week.
