Spanish club Real Betis have agreed on a deal to sign Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir during this summer’s transfer window.
The Real Betis agreement for Liverpool target Fekir was confirmed by French journalist Romain Collette-Gaudin.
It was revealed that Real Betis have agreed on a €25m fee for Nabil Fekir and that the player has also agreed to a five-year contract with the Spanish club.
Nabil Fekir will complete his transfer to Real Betis once Giovanni Lo Celso has been sold.
Real Betis midfielder Lo Celso is attracting the interest of clubs like Real Madrid and Tottenham Hotspur.
The 23-year-old recently represented Argentina at this year’s COPA America tournament.
Giovanni Lo Celso and Argentina finished the tournament in the third position behind runners-up Peru and hosts cum eventual winners Brazil.
For Nabil Fekir, he has one year left on his contract at Lyon.
The former French champions have to sell him this summer to avoid losing him for free next summer when his Lyon contract expires.
Fekir came close to signing for Liverpool last summer in a £50m deal only for the Reds to pull out of the transfer.
Liverpool were skeptical about his knee and that led to the collapse of the said transfer.
