REVEALED: Chelsea made multiple deadline day offers for Lyon ace Fekir

Chelsea made multiple offers to Lyon for Nabil Fekir on deadline day, it has been revealed.

Fekir saw the Premier League transfer window close yesterday still an OL player, despite an on-off move to Liverpool before the World Cup and Chelsea's attempts this week.

Italian transfer expert Alfredo Pedulla says Chelsea, pushed by manager Maurizio Sarri, made a frantic late bid for Fekir on Thursday.

Chelsea offered €60m cash before also including an unnamed player in a swap for the midfielder, but both proposals were rejected by OL president Jean Michel Aulas.

Aulas was determined to keep hold of Fekir, especially with no club meeting his €75m valuation.
