Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas has revealed that Chelsea never had any interest in signing Nabil Fekir
Lyon had seemingly been prepared to sell Nabil Fekir to Liverpool earlier this summer before the transfer broke down before the World Cup.
Fekir was linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge towards the end of the transfer window but despite discussions being held, Aulas has indicated that the Blues were not interested in the France international.
Aulas said: “In the beginning when we thought about our summer transfer window and how to organise the future squad, we thought that he was practically gone.
“That’s why we have been able to adapt things. We spoke with Chelsea representatives, and they had no interest at all in him. From then on, we realised we could change our plans.”
