Fekir, who won the World Cup with France, was set for a move to Liverpool in the summer worth 52.75 million euros but the deal fell through and he stayed with Lyon.

Chelsea have reportedly held talks with AC Milan and Juventus regarding the availability of Gonzalo Higuaín.

Chelsea will be hoping to pay less than that because Fekir's Lyon contract expires in the summer of 2020.

Chelsea failed to land Higuain in summer, with the Argentine winding up at Milan after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo forced him out of Juventus.

"I like him very much".

The 25-year-old had a wonderful season with Lyon last season and has 9 goals and 4 assists from all competitions this time around.

President Urges Senate to "Go Nuclear"
The Senate was set to convene at noon EST (1700 GMT) and it remained unclear what would happen if the House measure fails there. Right now, Republicans still need at least 10 Democrats to sign off on a bill before it can be passed along to Trump's desk.

Maurizio Sarri's side head to the game after losing 1-0 to Leicester City over the weekend.

Sarri's insistence that he has "two and a half strikers" on his books initiates from Sarri's recent experiment of playing Eden Hazard as a central striker or false nine, rather than relying on inconsistent duo Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata.

The Chelsea boss has built his midfield around Jorginho, the Brazilian he brought with him from Napoli, but Fekir offers a different kind of threat.

According to the Telegraph, CFC are already negotiating a possible swap deal involving Morata and AC Milan striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Another potential January target for Chelsea is Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic, who is valued at £60m.

If Chelsea could even sign just two of these three players in January, it would certainly strengthen their club and help them contend for a top-three finish in the Premier League.
