Nabil Fekir has passed his Liverpool medical and will become the Reds’ latest signing, according to French FA president Noel Le Graet.
When the deal was not made official on Friday, doubts were cast over the player’s fitness as he had suffered a serious injury to his right knee previously. However, reports in France suggested the delay may be down to Lyon’s accountancy practices wanting the deal to be completed in the new financial year.
Le Graet offered a positive comment for fans fearful that the 24-year-old may not complete his switch to Anfield.
“He’s in the middle of negotiations and I think it’s done,” he said. “I spent 15 minutes with him this morning [Saturday], and he’s worried by the France team. He’s in good spirits. He passed his medical in Clairefontaine. That’s logical, we’ve done it for other players. He was looking forward to it because the visit he had was positive.”
