Nabil Fekir

English Premier League Chelsea transfer target Nabil Fekir might no longer have a move to the Stamford Bridge following reports that he is now being wanted at Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid.

Los Blancos are now favourites in the bid for Nabil Fekir according to reports from Marca overnight.

The star player has been linked with a move to Chelsea for some weeks now with suggestions that he would be at the Stamford Bridge to help the Blues in the second half of the season.

Nabil Fekir was close to joining the Premier League leaders Liverpool last summer but the deal failed at the verge of his announcement as a Reds player.

However, the future of the French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon star could just be at the Bernabeu with latest reports.

The report claims that Nabil Fekir would be offered a luring offer that would be difficult for him to turn down as well as the French side in January when the window reopens.

Fekir is expected to remain with Lyon until 2020 but that might not happen with the big and many interests.

Meanwhile, the West London side are desperate for a top four finish so as to secure a Champions League space.

Callum Hudson-Odoi

West London outfit Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi has been seeking for playing time at the Stamford Bridge, but his wish has not been granted, a development that has unsettled him at the club.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, however, secured his debut call to the England national team by manager Gareth Southgate and that seems to have gone into his head as he got his first appearance from the bench in the Friday night game against Czech Republic.

The young lad has been identified as a big talent but he has been finding it difficult to win manager Maurizio Sarri’s heart for a playing time week-in-week-out. No wonder he is pushing for a move away.

German Bundesliga outfit Bayern Munich are keen on his signature. They have had about three different offers being rejected by the West London outfit.

All of these seem not to be a concern for Callum Hudson-Odoi as he is now a part of the England national team. He now dreams of more caps and appearances under manager Gareth Southgate.

The 18-year-old, who reacted to his appearance, said he could not believe it when he had to come in, seeing the crowd as he expressed his delight at the opportunity.

Antonio Conte

West London outfit Chelsea parted ways with Italian boss Antonio Conte in the last summer transfer window but there is still a lot to be settled for the two parties to finally bid goodbye.

The former Chelsea boss has demanded compensation from his employers for treating him badly and not parting ways with him until the summer transfer window was closed which is the reason why he is still jobless.

A compensation of £9 million is supposed to be paid to the Italian boss but the West London outfit are reluctant to pay the said amount.

It has been revealed that Antonio Conte had a rift with Diego Costa which is the reason why the player forced a move away from the club and was sold to Spanish La Liga outfit Atletico for a fee that is far below his evaluation.

The West London outfit earned £57 million from the La Liga outfit from the deal but they are of the opinion that the Spanish striker deserves more than the amount.

However, Antonio Conte has been replaced by another Italian manager and former Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri who started on a good note with a number of successive wins but is currently battling to win games.
