Nabil Fekir close to Real Betis move

Nabil Fekir is on the verge of joining Real Betis, according to reports in Mundo Deportivo this weekend.

The French international has been linked with a move away from the Groupama Stadium this summer, and with interest from Champions League winner Liverpool fading, Real Betis have swooped in.

Lyon boss Sylvinho has give permission for Fekir to leave the club's pre-season training camp and travel to Spain to discuss personal terms at the Estadio Benito Villamarin after they accepted a €25m fee.

The 26-year old has made clear his intention not to sign a new contract with the French side, with his currently deal expiring in June 2020, and he is expected to sign a five-year deal with the Andalucian club.

FC Barcelona were also reported to be interested in bring Fekir to the Camp Nou, however that interest cooled after they completed the signing of Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid.
