Nabil Fekir has passed his medical at Liverpool – despite ‘fears’ over a potential knee injury.
The 24-year-old is currently with France’s World Cup squad in Paris, where Liverpool have flown out members of their staff to conduct a medical.
Fekir, who was apparently persuaded to join by Jurgen Klopp himself, is now expected to follow Fabinho and Naby Keita through the door at Anfield.
The Liverpool Echo reports that the forward passed his medical despite ‘a second opinion’ being sought on a potential knee injury.
‘Those fears were eased’ however, and Liverpool are now eager to confirm the deal before the World Cup commences next week.
