Younes Belhanda is on the verge of leaving Montpellier for Fenerbahce after agreeing personal terms with the club.
The Turkish side's vice-president, Abdullah Kigili, revealed the latest developments but stated that a transfer fee still needs to be negotiated between the two sides in the coming days.
"They'd reduced their original price to €10m [£8.4m] but we've offered them €8m [£6.7m]. We have an agreement with the player himself, now we just have to wait for Montpellier to accept our offer," he told AA.
Belhanda played a huge role in guiding la Paillade to the Ligue 1 title last year, making 28 appearances, scoring 12 goals and setting up another four for his team-mates.
The reigning champions have endured a disappointing campaign this time around, though, and sit in ninth place, 13 points adrift of leaders Olympique Lyonnais.
Fener will hope the Morocco international can inject life into their own title aspirations, as they trail leaders Galatasaray by six points in Turkey's Super Lig.
