Chelsea offered chance to sign Nabil Fekir

Fekir to Chelsea?

FA Cup holders Chelsea have reportedly been offered the opportunity to sign Nabil Fekir from Lyon this summer.

The France international was heavily tipped to join Liverpool earlier this month but the move was called off at the final hurdle.

According to The Sun, Les Gones are still open to selling the attacker during the summer transfer window and they have alerted the likes of Tottenham and Chelsea regarding the Frenchman's availability.

Meanwhile, they are now said to demand a fee of around £66m for their captain which is £13m more than what they had initially agreed with Jurgen Klopp's side.

Liverpool had even completed an introductory video with Fekir which included his shirt number but their concerns over his injury record pulled the plug on the proposed move.

Fekir was a second half substitute for France during their close 2-1 win over Australia on Saturday afternoon. Paul Pogba bagged the winner for Didier Deschamps' team.
