Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has said he and Eden Hazard spoke to Lyon midfielder Nabil Fekir about a possible move to Stamford Bridge during the World Cup, adding that he would "happily welcome" him to the club.

Fekir was absent during Chelsea's victory over the Ligue 1 giant Lyon which ended 5-4 on penalties after a goalless draw in their final pre-season friendly at Stamford Bridge on Tuesday, having returned to training this week following his role in France's World Cup win.

Earlier this summer, the 25-year-old was set to move to Liverpool , but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas prevented the deal from pushing through.

"Of course I talked to him about it [moving to Chelsea] when we were with France and his transfer to Liverpool that fell through," Giroud told FootMercato.
