Chelsea’s €50m bid for brilliant midfield talent will be “difficult to resist”

Chelsea were absolutely rocked by a devastating loss to Bayern Munich this week, and the natural tendency of plenty of fans is to think about what players we can buy to “quick fix” this team.

Any bummed out fans who turned on the TV the following evening for a distraction will have seen Lyon beat Juventus, with Houssem Aouar providing an assist for the only goal.

Then, no sooner had they opened the papers today, then they will have seen the midfielder linked with a move to Chelsea.

SportWitness had translated claims from TMW in Italy, saying the Blues have “serious” interest in the midfielder and have a €50m bid “ready”, a bid which they say the French club will find “difficult to resist.”

We saw Nabil Fekir move from the club last summer to Real Betis, proving that while Lyon don’t sell cheap, they do accept they have to sell at a certain price level. If we really want the superbly talented 21 year old this summer, it should just be a question of how much we’re willing to pay, especially if these rumours are to be believed.
