Chelsea join Liverpool in the race to sign Nabil Fekir

  Chelsea join Liverpool in the race to sign Nabil Fekir Chelsea will reportedly rival Liverpool in their pursuit of Nabil Fekir this summer. According to a report in L’Equipe, as cited by Calciomercato, the Blues are among a host of clubs who have expressed an interest in signing the Lyon star. It’s claimed that Liverpool’s negotiations to sign Fekir from the Ligue 1 outfit are not at an advanced stage just yet, but it appears as though there is plenty of Premier League interest in the 24-year-old and the Reds are one of the teams who are admirers of him. Fekir is enjoying an excellent season in France and has established himself as a talismanic figure for Lyon in recent seasons. The playmaker is a coveted asset for Lyon and they will undoubtedly be desperate to retain his services. However, a move to the Premier League could prove to be a lucrative proposition for the player, who is yet to play for an English club. The Reds are likely to chase a deal to sign the French international, but Chelsea will be doing the same.
