Chelsea make move for 23 goals a season former Liverpool target

Chelsea have launched an offer for former Liverpool target Nabil Fekir and they are reportedly desperate to complete the deal before the end of the transfer window.

Fekir was very close to joining Liverpool this summer and had already picked a shirt number with the Reds, however, the deal fell through after he failed some part of his medicals.

He has since gone on to win the World Cup with France and resumed training with Lyon, however, his future remains unclear.

He returned to first team training yesterday and reiterated his commitment to the French side, however, he kept the door open for a move away when he admitted that he could not say what the future held for his career.

He said: “As you can see, I am in Lyon. I am very happy here. But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very quickly in football.
“We don’t know what will happen in the future but I am very happy at Lyon. I feel brilliant in this squad.
“We have very good players, a great atmosphere. It is a bit like the French national team: a mixture of youngster and older players, with some players more experienced than others.
“We have a good group, very homogeneous. We feel good together and I hope that Lyon will have a very good season.”

France Football via Sun Sport claims that the Blues have sped up their effort to bring him to Stamford Bridge this summer as they look set to lose Eden Hazard.
