Fekir should opt for £66m Tottenham switch and snub London rivals Chelsea

Lyon have offered playmaker Nabil Fekir to other Premier League clubs after his move to Liverpool fell through, according to the Sun. 

What’s the story, then?

The Sun report that the Ligue 1 outfit are asking for £66m for the man who is currently part of the French squad at the World Cup, who looked set for Anfield before dealings came to an abrupt halt last week.

They claim that Liverpool were only willing to pay £53m for Fekir and that Lyon’s continued willingness to sell has alerted the attention of London rivals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.

They go on to say that the knee issues that also impacted Jurgen Klopp’s thinking need not put off their fellow top six rivals securing a deal for the midfield man.

Tottenham would be the better move

Chelsea are embarking on a summer of turmoil, where the identity of the man who will be in the dugout for their opening game of next season is still not certain as they seek to clamber out of the Europa League and back to the top table of continental football.

That means that there are doubts hanging over the playing style and personnel on show at Stamford Bridge, yet Tottenham are a much more settled outfit.

Fekir would add variety to their frontline and he would know exactly who he will be managed by, playing with, the style of play and the aspirations of the club if he made the move to North London. There is only one move for him to make.
