Lyon forward Nabil Fekir who was among the France squad that won the 2018 FIFA World Cup has emerged as a January 2019 transfer target for Premier League giants Chelsea.

Chelsea chiefs want to lure the 25-year-old star to Stamford Bridge in case Belgium international Eden Hazard decides to join Spanish club Real Madrid.

Although Eden Hazard has made it clear that he wants to stay at Chelsea, there have been reports that Real Madrid are coming back in January to tempt the Blues to sell him.

And according to the report by UK Sun, Nabil Fekir who made six appearances for France at the 2018 World Cup is the target for Chelsea as a replacement for Eden Hazard.

During the last summer transfer, Nabil Fekir was on the verge of joining Liverpool, but the two clubs failed to reach an agreement.

Fekir who scored 23 goals in 39 games last season is under contract until 2020, and Lyon hopes to hang on to him for the rest of the season.

But Chelsea could then land the playmaker for a cut-price fee if Hazard fulfils his long-held ambition by moving to the Bernabeu.
