The Swiss international, should he join, will earn €350,000 a month a sign a three-year contract with Les Gones, making him the club’s highest earner after Memphis Depay’s departure to Barcelona.

The 29-year-old, who is in the final year of his current deal, had been the subject of an initial €4m offer from Lyon, with an improved bid coming in today at what is reported to be €6m – Liverpool’s asking price according to Gianluca Di Marzio is €8m.

The Swiss international is not the only attacking target of Peter Bosz’s – with the Dutch manager also looking to bring in Zenit Saint Petersburg and Iran striker Sardar Azmoun for reinforcements up front.
