Nabil Fekir has reportedly passed his Liverpool FC medical, allaying fears over a knee issue.
Rumours circulated on social media on Friday morning that the move for the Frenchman was in jeopardy due to a failed medical, but the Liverpool Echo have reported that a “second opinion was sought on a knee issue but those fears were eased.”
Fekir missed a large part of the 2015/16 season after suffering a ruptured knee ligament.
It means that Liverpool are now set to complete the signing of the versatile attacking midfielder, with an initial fee of £48 million agreed with Lyon.
An image has been leaked on social media showing Fekir in a Liverpool shirt in an interview for the club’s TV channel, LFCTV – that interview took place in Paris on Thursday evening, when the initial medical examination also took place.
Reports from France claim that the news cannot be confirmed until at least 5pm French time (4pm UK) due to stock market regulations.
