Chelsea Boost As Transfer Target Is Dropped From Lyon Squad

Premier League giants Chelsea have been boosted by the news that transfer target Nabil Fekir has been dropped from the Lyon squad.

The new development has fuelled rumours about a possible exit from the club.

Nabil Fekir, 25, was left out of the Lyon squad for the French Cup clash with fifth-tier club Bourges.

The spotlight is back on the long-term future of the French international star at Champions League campaigners Lyon.

The Daily Mirror claim that Lyon are keen to sell him if he fails to sign a contract extension with the club.

Nabil Fekir has less than 18 months on his Lyon contract set to expire at the end of next season.

The French forward came close to signing for the Blues’ rivals and Premier League table toppers Liverpool last summer after a £53m was agreed with Lyon for his transfer.

However, the big money move didn’t happen after the Reds pulled out of the transfer at the last minute.

Liverpool were said to have called off the multi-million pounds transfer because of long-term concerns over his knee.

The player recovered from that setback to play a part in the 2018 FIFA World Cup triumph recorded by the French team via a 4-2 win over Croatia.

Chelsea join race to sign Manchester United target

According to reports from teamtalk, they have revealed that Manchester United and Chelsea are both interested in signing Bristol City starlet, Antoine Semenyo during this January window.

The youngster has been impressing out on loan at Newport County this season and his displays have seen scouts queuing to watch him in action.

With six goals in the kitty this season for the Exiles, the 19 year old is thought to be valued at £2m with the Premier League giants plotting their moves.

Raised in London, 19-year-old Antoine Semenyo moved to Bristol in order to attend SGS, a college based in Filton.

Loans manager Brian Tinnion and head of recruitment Damien Butt were impressed by the then-17-year old, and after a brief trial period with the Robins, he put pen to paper in September of last year, signing a two-year deal.

In his first appearance for City, Semenyo bagged two goals as they ran out 7-2 victors in an under-18s fixture against Hull City.

Why Barcelona are making move for Chelsea ill-performing player

The Spanish side, Barcelona have reportedly made moves to sign Chelsea ill-performing striker, Olivier Giroud.

A report has made it known that the world cup winner wants to leave Chelsea FC as he battles with limited playing chances in the Blues squad.

Lately, Maurizio Sarri has resolved to start Eden Hazard as a false nine in recent matches while Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata are left to watch from the dugout.

It is bizarre to however see that the Catalans are interested in signing Giroud, who is out of place at Stamford Bridge.

But it seems to be a rather wise move from the coach, Ernesto Valverde, who will be keen to bolster his attacking options following the departure of Paco Alcacer.

Also, Olivier Giroud is a cheaper option for the Catalans as compared to Neymar Jr, who Barcelona wanted to resign from Paris Saint Germain.

It is however unsure if Chelsea will allow the France international leave in January considering the fact that they have agreed on a loan deal for Alvaro Morata to leave for Atletico Madrid.

Barcelona will have to wait till the summer to be able to pull the move.

Real Madrid prepares £88m Bid For Chelsea star man

Spanish giants ,Real Madrid are plotting a big money move for Chelsea forward Eden Hazard according to various reports emanating from the media in Spain.

According to the publication from Spanish media outlet Marca, Real Madrid are eyeing a move for the Belgian international attacker in the summer and are hopeful that a bid of around £88m would be enough to prise him away from Stamford Bridge.

The Belgian has less than 18 months on his current deal with Chelsea and the Premier League giants have not been able to tie him down to a new contract.

The Blues risk losing him for free in the summer of 2020 if Eden Hazard does not sign a new contract at the club meaning that they might need to sell him this summer.

Hazard has already talked up the idea of signing for the Spanish La Liga outfit adding that it would be a dream move for him.

The talisman has grown to become the star player in the Chelsea team since he joined the club from French Ligue 1 giants Lille during the summer of 2012 shortly after the Blues won the Champions League via a penalty shootout win over German Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich.
