Chelsea prepared to beat Liverpool to the signing of £53m attacker

  • Jurgen Klop has spent over £170m this summer on big name signings

Fekir enjoyed a superb campaign previous year that saw him provide 23 goals and 8 assists to help Lyon finish third in the Ligue 1 table and his form saw him earn a place in the French squad that went on to lift the World Cup in Russian Federation last month. But the transfer window is still long and everything goes very fast in football.

Since then, Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has suggested that the Frenchman could stay put with Les Gones for the upcoming campaign but France Football suggests the 25-year-old could yet make the switch to the Premier League. We don't know what will happen in the future but I am very happy at Lyon. The attacking midfielder was on the verge of completing the move to the Merseyside club, he even completed LFC TV interview and chose his shirt number but the failed medical prompted the Reds to sit on the negotiation table with Lyon President Aulas once again.

Iranian Oil Imports Will Not Be Decreased, China Tells US
Recall that President Hassan Rouhani of Iran had earlier warned the United States against any attempt to stop Tehran's oil trade. China has rejected USA requests to cut Iranian oil imports , damaging Washington's efforts to isolate Tehran .

Fekir, who was a member of the French World Cup winning squad, enjoyed a stand-out season for Lyon last term as he scored 23 goals as well as being named the club's captain. I am very happy here.

With the premier League transfer window slated to close in just 3 days, there seems to have little time left for the deliberations to get underway from both sides. It was Liverpool who looked to be the front-runner in securing Fekir's services with a reported fee of £53 million. So I still feel I need a proper season of playing. "We live well and I hope that OL will have a very good season". We have very good players, there is a good atmosphere.
