Lyon leave Nabil Fekir out of squad to face Chelsea in friendly
Chelsea target Nabil Fekir has been left out of the Lyon squad to play against them in a pre-season friendly on Tuesday night as he refuses to rule out a late switch to Stamford Bridge.

France midfielder Fekir has been the subject of heavy speculation all summer linking him with a move away from Ligue 1.

He looked poised to move to Liverpool before the World Cup started but issues in his medical brought that deal to a standstill. Fekir only returned to pre-season training on Monday following his role in France's World Cup winning campaign.

L'Equipe reported on Monday morning that Lyon would still allow Fekir to leave this summer if a suitable offer comes in, said to be around the £60million mark.

Fekir is however keeping his cards close to his chest and is yet to make a commitment on his future amid rumours Liverpool are ready to table an offer before the English transfer window slams shut this week.
