Nabil Fekir43

Chelsea are reportedly set to rival Liverpool and Arsenal for the signature of Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir.

Antonio Conte’s men proved on Sunday afternoon that they’re able to get one over on the Reds on the field – could we be about to defeat them once again in the transfer market?

L’Equipe believe that we’re going to give it a go. The report claims that Lyon will demand a fee in the region of £52.8M before agreeing to part with their prize possession.

With the likely absence of Champions League football, Chelsea are not likely to be keen to fork out a figure like that without raising some considerable cash through player sales.

Arsenal and Liverpool are also thought to be interested in signing Fekir. Jurgen Klopp’s side were previously thought to have agreed a fee to sign the Frenchman. However, rumours of such were fast dismissed by Lyon CEO Jean-Michel Aulas.
