WHAT HAS BEEN SAID –
Speaking to Caught Offside, Romano said that there was no offer, he said: “Lyon also have plenty of interest in star player Rayan Cherki, he’s appreciated by many clubs.”
“I’m not allowed to share the names of the clubs who were in discussions over Cherki in the summer right now, it’s still a secret, but I can say he’s a player CHELSEA have been following.”
“There have been a lot of rumours this week, but it was never anything concrete between Chelsea and Lyon. The main talks between Chelsea and Lyon were over Bradley Barcola, not Cherki, it’s not something imminent or a priority target for Chelsea.”
