The talented Lyon play-maker nearly joined Liverpool last summer but the move collapsed at the eleventh hour.

However, Fekir continues to be linked with a move away from the club and with just over 18 months remaining on his contract, it appears that Lyon have chose to entertain receiving the highest-possible fee for the player.

Now it appears that the Spanish giants want Fekir and are willing to offer a sizeable deal to try and prise the player away from Lyon in January. Chelsea have been looking to bring the Frenchman in.

Fekir is more of an attacking midfielder, but his skills could play up very well with Chelsea.

Real Madrid's interest in the player has been reignited after Fekir's impressive performances in the Champions League.
