Liverpool to announce second summer signing, £50m plus deal on the cards

UEFA will announce their punishment on Thursday

But Fekir's agent Jean-Pierre Bernès insists that the 24-year-old will leave Lyon this summer and Liverpool remain the frontrunners for his signature.

"Talks with Liverpool will only happen when there is an agreement with Lyon and Jean-Michel Aulas gives the green light", he told French outlet Le Progres . "The window will be long".

The attacker has done little to dampen speculation that he is on his way to Anfield and admitted last week that he was open to joining the Reds.

With Emre Can set to depart when his contract expires at the end of next month, Liverpool could possibly field an entirely new-look midfield next campaign if they manage to secure a deal for Fekir.

The Reds finished fourth and without a trophy last season after they lost the Champions League final to Real Madrid.

There were even claims from France on Saturday night that Fekir was due to arrive on Merseyside on Sunday for a medical - claims which were since dismissed.

While Liverpool's interest is obvious, the club has responded to the above rumour by denying that Fekir is set for a medical. Fresh defensive options would likely spell the end of Daley Blind's career at United and The Sun reports Inter Milan has stepped up its interest in the Dutchman. According to The Sun, the Toffees will test Newcastle's resolve to keep its captain with a $40 million bid and the same paper believes Bayern Munich are monitoring Everton's goalkeeper Jordan Pickford, amid concerns over Manuel Neuer's long-term fitness.
