Chelsea Keen On Liverpool Target Nabil Fekir But Europa League Negative Factor

Adjust Comment Print

There are suggestions that the Reds are trying to secure an agreement with Borussia Dortmund to land Pulisic next year while we understand that Lyon have a "take it or leave it" offer on the table for Fekir. But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very quickly in football.

Since then, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has suggested that the Frenchman could stay put with Les Gones for the upcoming campaign but France Football suggests the 25-year-old could yet make the switch to the Premier League. "He is still young, of course, but I think if we can have him in the team this season it's a plus for everyone".

Fekir scored 18 goals for Lyon last season and can operate as a central attacking midfielder, on the flanks and even as a false 9.

But he also said that the deal is on and the 22 year old will eventually be joining Arsenal as soon as the campaign ends for Uruguay .

But with a few days left of before the window slams shut, Genesio has admitted that Fekir's future is still up in the air - and that the France global requested a transfer at the end of the season.

Insisting on his happiness at Lyon, the skipper said:"As you can see, I am in Lyon". There is a good group, very homogeneous. Blues boss Maurizio Sarri has recently indicated that the club may pursue one recruit before the transfer deadline and Fekir could preferably be the choice before the transfer window closes on Thursday. So I still feel I need a proper season of playing.

Liverpool supporters however are hoping that there may still be a shock signing with the likes of Christian Pulisic and Nabil Fekir still on their wish list. We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.
