Liverpool have reportedly been tracking the Lyon ace all summer long.
Aulas had initially been stoic in his approach to the Fekir transfer, but has since indicated that he would be willing to do business with Liverpool, assuming the price is right. There had been no real breakthrough in the deal, until now as the French club have reportedly conceded that it would be impossible to stop Fekir from leaving as Liverpool occupy pole position for his signature.
The Stoke City winger is capable of playing anywhere across a front three and would be a very good (and cheap) option from the bench while Nabil Fekir can play on either wing, as a false nine and a little bit deeper as a number 10.
They claim that 19-year-old midfielder Houssem Aouar is set to sign a new five-year contract, with Lyon urging him to step up as Fekir's replacement.
Fekir, also a reported Arsenal target, has seemingly set his heart on signing for the Gunners' Premier League rivals, Liverpool, after Jurgen Klopp's side showcased their intention and plans for next season with him in the team.
The Independent reported earlier this week that the two clubs were locked in negotiations regarding Fekir, with Liverpool prepared to offer £50 million for the Frenchman - £11 million short of Lyon's asking price.
