Chelsea target now wanted by La Liga giants


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.
