We’re just days away from kickoff at the World Cup in Russia, and a number of the tournament’s would-be stars are preparing to make some big moves on the club level.

Pro Soccer Talk takes a look at the biggest transfer stories on Saturday, including Liverpool’s pursuit of another talented attacker.


The Reds already boast one of the top attackers in the world, but Jurgen Klopp isn’t done building his squad.

Liverpool is reportedly set to add Lyon star Nabil Fekir after the Frenchman passed a medical with the club, according to French FA president Noel Le Graet.

The 24-year-old is currently on international duty with Les Bleus as they prepare for the 2018 World Cup.


Meanwhile, Tottenham Hotspur is set to get some good news of its own in the form of re-signing two of the club’s biggest stars.

Following Harry Kane‘s decision to sign an extension with Spurs, it appears two of his teammates will follow suit.

The Mirror is reporting that Dele Alli and Christian Eriksen will each sign new deals with Mauricio Pochettino‘s side, who finished in the Premier League top four last season.


West Ham United could be in store for another big summer of spending as well.

The Hammers are reportedly pursuing veteran Ivorian midfielder Yaya Toure, who is currently a free agent.

Toure last played for Manchester City, however, fell out of favor in the starting XI over the past few years as the Citizens squad got younger under Pep Guardiola.
