The report from the French outlet reports that the Agent has already enquired Fekir’s agent and club’s chief over the possibility of signing Fekir and the Blues interest in the player.

From the report, it’s claimed Jean-Michel Aulas has publicly direct that the uncertainties surrounding Fekir’s future should be sorted in next few weeks. It’s believed the Ligue One giants are hoping to tie him down to a new deal by offering him a contract that will run until 2020.

But with Fekir’s abrupt issues with his agent Jean-Pierre Bernes, this could alll turn out to be in Chelsea’s favour, with Lyon having no choice than to consider whether to sell the midfielder before the player moves into the last 12 months of his current deal.

Chelsea will likely face strong competition for the signing of Fekir from Bayern Munich, and it remains to be seen whether Liverpool will re-enter the race.

Liverpool sanctioned a mouth-watering £52.8m ($65,821,548.00) for the signing of the French forward last summer due to concerns over a long-standing knee injury.

Should everything go has planned in next few weeks, Fekir could jet in to London and have his medicals with Chelsea which.
