Chelsea prepared to beat Liverpool to the signing of £53m attacker

French media outlet L'Equipe, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that the Reds are still interested in a potential deal to sign the France worldwide in the summer transfer window.

Chelsea have reportedly joined the race to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon before this week's transfer deadline.

Today, Chelsea are linked with Liverpool target Nabil Fekir...

As such, the 25-year-old still remains a Lyon player but a late interest from Chelsea means a transfer could be very much on the cards before the transfer window closes this Thursday.

Fekir, who was a member of the French World Cup winning squad, enjoyed a stand-out season for Lyon last term as he scored 23 goals as well as being named the club's captain.
