chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri made £50m exchange target Nabil Fekir a guarantee in an individual call to the energizing forward
MAURIZIO SARRI is reportedly so keen on signing Nabil Fekir, that he personally picked up the phone in an offer to allure the midfielder to Stamford Bridge.
Fekir has been linked with a move to Chelsea, since a deal with Liverpool fell through at the last hour, yet Sarri isn’t laying on his shrubs.
The Blues’ boss made it clear to the Lyon midfielder that he would play a key role in his squad and laid out his desire for what’s to come.
As per Sport Witness, Sarri is concerned that Bayern Munich are circling and needed to guarantee he got first refusal.
And as a result, a £50m offer is being prepared in a bid to bolster Sarri’s squad and contend with their residential adversaries on the European stage.
Before rumours of a move to Chelsea emerged, the 25-year-old was intensely connected with a move to the Blues’ Premier League rivals Liverpool.
But an ongoing knee injury caused the Champions League sprinters up to desert their offer.
Fekir is wanted by several clubs across Europe and it’s not difficult to perceive any reason why.
The attacking midfielder has already bagged four goals for Lyon, over all rivalries this season and scored twice from 18 appearances for France.
Fekir’s pace, exciting style of play and ability to expertly read a game is some of the reason clubs are on standby, however any imminent club should sprinkle the money to purchase the Lyon captain.
The World Cup winner is under contract with Lyon until 2020, but he has done nothing to downplay rumours that he could before long be swapping Ligue 1 for the Premier League.
Earlier this year, he said: « What happened with Liverpool is straight out of my head, I turned the page.
« We must not stop at this, we must move forward. There are things that must be acknowledged.
« My future? We have not discussed an extension yet, we will perceive what occurs. »
