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

Man Utd news

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. The attacking midfielder was on the verge of completing the move to the Merseyside club, he even completed LFC TV interview and chose his shirt number but the failed medical prompted the Reds to sit on the negotiation table with Lyon President Aulas once again. Today, Chelsea are linked with Liverpool target Nabil Fekir...

A £53m deal had been agreed but at the last moment the transfer fell through.

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.

As you can see, I am in Lyon.

"But the window is still open and things move quickly in football".

'Ruben is still young, of course, but I think if we can have him in the team this season it's a plus for everyone, ' Hazard told the Evening Standard.

Jose Mourinho and Manchester United also come under the spotlight after a turbulent pre-season while Maurizio Sarri's potential impact at Chelsea is also up for debate. This could go either way as Chelsea would wait till the haze over Hazard's future to clear before finalising such a deal.
