With Alexis Sanchez set to depart the Emirates at the end of the season, Gooners have wasted no time in identifying their desired replacement for the Chilean is Nabil Fakir.
Sanchez made known his intention to leave the Emirates during last summer’s transfer window and only remained for the season after his desired move to rivals Manchester City fell through on deadline day.
With no plans in place to discuss an extension to his contract that runs out at the end of the current campaign, Sanchez seems set to depart for nothing at the end of the season.
Wenger is understood to have identified Monaco’s Thomas Lemar as his ideal replacement and only blocked Sanchez’s exit last summer after he could not finalize a deal for Lemar.
Gooners on the other hand have taken to Twitter to profess their love for another Ligue 1 star in Fekir, calling on Wenger to move for him when Sanchez eventually leaves.
The Olympic Lyon man has been in blistering form of late netting six goals and an assist in his last three outings in the league taking his overall tally for the season to 10 goals and three assist in just 14 Ligue 1 and Europa League matches thus far, which has obviously caught the attention of some Gooners.
Daily Cannon reports a number of Gooners’ tweets calling for the extreme talented midfielder to be snapped up by the Gunners, some fans even went as far as calling on Alexandre Lacazette to get his ex teammate to move to North London.
If Wenger would be willing to listen to the fans and turn his attentions towards Fekir remains to be seen.
