It is claimed that a move to Chelsea could be cooled because of the fact Fekir would only be playing Europa League football next season.

At the time a statement on the Lyon website said: "Transfer negotiations with Liverpool and Nabil Fekir for the transfer of the captain of OL have not succeeded and Olympique Lyonnais have chose to put an end to this negotiation tonight". I am very happy here.

The Mirror suggest that Lyon will demand at least £50m for Fekir and if Chelsea make a formal move for his signature it will be interesting to see if Liverpool decide to renew their interest in the midfielder.
