Arsenal fans would definitely happy to see a new quality midfielder added to their present squad after seeing a woeful display from the Gunners midfielders during their Europa League semi-finals second leg clash against Atletico Madrid which ended in a 1-0 defeat for the Gunners.
There is a great news for the Gunners as report suggest they have reached an agreement with Lyon over the signing of their versatile playmaker and holding midfielder Nabil Fekir.
According French media publication L’Equipe on Sunday, Lyon’s midfield maestro is reportedly ready to make his long-awaited switch to the Emirates stadium this summer as he is being confirmed by the Ligue 1 side to be leaving in the summer.
the 22-goal hero is understood to have a running contract with Lyon but that won’t stop him from joining the Gunners, according to the French media outlet.
Fekir’s unselfish attitude will definitely be of great importance to Arsenal’s strikers who didn’t get better and constant service from the midfielders throughout the season.
Liverpool, Chelsea, Manchester United and their neighbors- City, were linked with a move for the player but they all failed in their bid for his signature.
Fekir’s reported move to Arsenal has been likened to that of Alexandre Lacazette who made a huge-money(£60) move to the Emirates stadium during the last summer transfer window.
