New Favourite Emerges In Race To Sign Chelsea Target Nabil Fekir

With the January transfer window now just days away, Spanish giants Real Madrid have reportedly been offered the chance to sign a France worldwide.

Liverpool agreed a fee worth up to £52.75million for Fekir back in the summer but the deal did not materialise.

Chelsea are now prepared to act on their interest in him, with seven goals for Lyon so far this season. AC Milan's Gonzalo Higuain and Dortmund's Christian Pulisic have also been on Sarri's radar.

Things though have not improved very much as Sarri is still not sure as to who his first choice striker is - Alvaro Morata or Olivier Giroud.

Maurizio Sarri's side head to the game after losing 1-0 to Leicester City over the weekend.

The Chelsea boss has built his midfield around Jorginho, the Brazilian he brought with him from Napoli, but Fekir offers a different kind of threat.

Maurizio Sarri arrived late in the summer, so he didn't really have the chance to sign a lot of players.

Higuain is now on loan at AC Milan, who sealed a deal with Juventus to take the striker for £16m for the year with an option to buy. The Argentinian has been a world-class finisher his entire career and would give Chelsea a true number nine.

They might even try to get rid of him in January and some reports they could try and get Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata in a complicated swap deal. The 25-year-old is versatile and can play as either attacking midfielder or forward.

Fekir was linked with Real Madrid in the summer but the club's transfer plans were shelved when Zinedine Zidane surprisingly resigned just days after he led them to the Champions League with a Final win over Liverpool.
