Arsenal are keeping tabs on Lyon’s attacking star Nabil Fekir (€47.5m), according to stories in Spain. The 24-year-old has been one of Ligue 1’s standout players this campaign with 11 goals and four assists in 11 games.
Sport suggest that Fekir’s performances have drawn interest from Barcelona, and the La Liga giants are closely watching the midfielder. However, the story also claims that Arsene Wenger has a keen interest in Fekir and sees the France international as a good successor for Alexis Sanchez, who is ready to leave on a free transfer next summer.
If he ends up at Arsenal, Fekir will link back up with Alexandre Lacazette, his ex-teammate at Lyon. Lacazette made a move to north London this summer as Arsenal spent a club-record £46.5 million price to sign him from the French giants.
