Chelsea almost make a huge-money offer for Lyon Star Nabil Fekir, who failed to complete his much-speculated switch to the Anfield Stadium, that’s according to reports.
Klopp was believed to be leading the race for his signature but the German tactician pulled out of the deal due to the player’s knee injury as at then.
According to Liverpool Echo, the Reds should have captured the Frenchman’s signature for £53m in June but they didn’t want to take any risk over the player’s recurring knee problem.
Latest report via Goal revealed that the Blues were keen on Fekir’s services in June, but they eventually cooled their interest in him.
The well-known media outlet confirmed that the Blues couldn’t push through their move for his service because they had another midfielder in their transfer wishlist.
They also unveiled that Maurizio Sarri targeted Borussia Dortmund’s winger Christian Pulisic as a replacement to Eden Hazard, who was heavily linked with a move to Santiago Bernabeu.
Having seen that the Belgian international is staying at Stamford Bridge, Sarri cooled his interest in the £65m-rated youngster.
However, the Italian manager turned his attention to upgrading his midfield’s setup by making move for Napoli star Jorginho, whom he successfully lured to the West London club before the close of transfer market earlier in the month.
