Arsenal have been told by Lyon that they have to come up with £60 million if they want to sign midfielder Nabil Fekir.
The France international midfielder has been a target for the gunners for a long time, and the times now seems right –both in terms of his development and place in the Arsenal squad-, for him to move.
The Lyon academy product seems to have come of age and has been very prolific this season, scoring 16 goals while creating an additional 4 goals, Also Alexis Sanchez is set to leave Arsenal and Nabil Fekir is now seen as a worthy replacement for the Chilean.
The 24-year-old has already said he would like to move to the Premier League, citing Arsenal among the clubs he’ll like to move to.
Lyon have ruled out selling Nabil Fekir in January, as they still retain outside hopes of challenging PSG for the title and would want to keep their key man at least until the end of the season, but Arsenal will have to pay £60 million by then to land him.
Fekir already has a solid understanding with our striker Alexandre Lacazette from their years together at Lyon, this understanding would mean adapting would be much easier should he make the move, and his skill set would be of great value in the squad after Sanchez departs.
Do you think he is the right player to replace Alexis at that price? Drop your comments below.
