Chelsea news: Sarri personally calls Fekir, Hazard revelation, Barca January signing claim | Football | Sport
Nabil Fekir phone call
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is desperate to sign Lyon’s Nabil Fekir.
Spanish outlet El Gol Digital claim Sarri personally phoned the France international in an attempt to get him to join the Blues.
Fekir almost joined Liverpool in the summer transfer window.
However, the Reds pulled the plug on the transfer after discovering a recurring knee injury.
Eden Hazard revelation
Eden Hazard says he’s still feeling the effects of the World Cup in the summer.
“Believe me, I am tired!” Hazard said.
“But I think I’m in good condition to play.
“Last year I got an injury with my ankle for three months. So that’s why I’m fresh now.”
Barcelona transfer off
Barcelona ace Denis Suarez would only be a backup option at Chelsea if Sarri was to sign him, ESPN FC pundit Paul Mariner claims.
“Sarri’s had him on his radar for a long time,” Mariner said.
“When he was at Napoli he tried to sign him a couple of times.
“I don’t know why they need another midfield player. It looks as if they’re flushed in there.
“Maybe he just wants to get him in for cover.
“Sarri knows about him way more than I do.
“I just don’t see how he’s going to get playing time.
“I don’t see it (happening), I’m sorry, no.”
