Chelsea get serious: Super agent hired to get Nabil Fekir

Chelsea are intensifying their bid for Lyon captain Nabil Fekir - including hiring a big name agent to get the deal done.

L'Equipe says Chelsea have handed super agent Pini Zahavi a mandate to negotiate on their behalf terms with Lyon to buy Fekir.

The attacker is now a priority target for Chelsea, this despite a failed medical scuppering a move to Liverpool six months ago.

Contact has already been established between Zahavi and Fekir's camp, knowing he needs to act fast amid competition from Bayern Munich and PSG.

For his part, Fekir is open to anything after refusing to consider new contract talks this season.
