Maurizio Sarri personally completing star attacker’s move to Chelsea



Chelsea have renewed efforts to execute the transfer of Lyon Star Nabil Fekir with the latest news coming from France. According to French paper L’Equipe,Chelsea are in a two-way battle with German side Bayern Munich for the signature of Fekir.

Fekir was close to a move to Liverpool in June but the deal collapsed due to a failed medical and has been on the radar of Chelsea all through the summer.

ElGol Digital reports that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri has personally called the World Cup winner detailing the role he would play if he moves to the London club. According to the report, Sarri assured the 25-year-old that he would be the centrepiece of the attack if he makes the move in January.

Fekir has been sensational in the past two years, putting a string of excellent performances for Lyon in all competitions. He scored 18 goals in the league last season helping Lyon to a 3rdplaced finish in the Ligue 1.

Fekir is famed for his creativity and set-piece ability which makes him one of the top midfielders in Europe. A transfer fee of £50 million is reportedly demanded by Lyon for the Talisman. Fekir campaign this season has been limited due to injuries.
