Chelsea “are accelerating” for Nabil Fékir

France Football report in this week’s magazine edition that Premier League side Chelsea “are accelerating down the final stretch,” in an attempt to sign Lyon captain Nabil Fékir from Lyon before Thursday’s deadline.

The magazine reports that Chelsea are showing considerable interest in Fékir and are looking to ensure increased fluidity in transition phases within Sarri’s team in comparison to what has been seen during the pre-season so far.

The outlet reports that it is “difficult to see” Liverpool coming back in for the player, after their behaviour in attempting to negotiate the price down with Lyon over Fékir’s knee “infuriated” Lyon representatives.

Although Chelsea have not made a firm offer for the player yet, the hours are ticking for Premier League sides to perfect their squads ahead of Thursday’s deadline.
