Chelsea 'Are Accelerating Down The Final Stretch' To Sign Nabil Fekir

On his future, Fekir has told Lyon's official TV channel: "As you can see, I am in Lyon".

According to French publication L'Equipe, Lyon are still open to the idea of selling Nabil Fekir to Liverpool, but on the one condition that they receive a bid of at least £60 million for his services. Jordan Henderson, Adam Lallana, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum will be vying for the third midfield spot; that's some healthy competition for a place in the starting XI and a good headache for the manager to have.

The bookmakers are certainly not expecting Fekir to move to Liverpool before the window closes on Thursday with Sky Bet making the talented play-maker an odds-on shot to stay at home.

It is claimed it would be complicated if Liverpool chose to resurrect their move for Fekir having flagged up concerns over an old knee problem.

"I don't know in the moment how many really good goalkeepers Ireland has, but having one more is never a big mistake".

It's safe to say that Liverpool fans have not taken the news well, going by these tweets.

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.

"I am a very positive person but even I can not say that reaching a final is the maximum because it's not the maximum".

Momentum has been building on the red half of Merseyside with positive results in pre-season, as well as a very strong performance in the summer transfer window. He probably won't play Tuesday and Sunday will be very hard as well. "I don't know how we will do it". "I like him a lot and I'm happy we have him in our squad".

"Hopefully it will be good and that's very important".
