Chelsea have reportedly stolen a march on Liverpool in the race to land Lyon star Nabil Fekir.
According to L’Equipe, the Blues have taken steps towards signing the France international and are now in pole position.
It is understood a bid of around £62m will be made for the midfielder, who has scored 21 times this campaign.
Arsenal and Manchester United have also been included, having kept tabs on the star earlier in the season.
Chelsea are reportedly set to trigger Benjamin Henrichs’ release clause at Bayer Leverkusen.
The 21-year-old is rated as one of the best young defenders in Germany, helping his country to glory in last summer’s Confederations Cup.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Antonio Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge, The Sun claim the Blues want the full-back this summer.
And it is said they are ready to splash out £31m to activate Henrichs’ buyout at Bayer.
