Arsenal reportedly want a deal with Lyon for Fekir who ‘hoped to join one of Europe’s top ten clubs in the near future’. The £50m-rated star has been outstanding in Ligue 1 this season and could be on the move this summer as a result.
Fekir joined Lyon from AS Saint-Priest in 2011 and has gone on to make 150 appearances, scoring and creating 92 goals. He’s contributed 23 goals in 27 league games this season and could be the subject of interest from many clubs as a result of such fine form. Fans certainly want him at Arsenal.

Now that Wenger will be gone, I wouldn’t mind seeing Fekir at Arsenal. Imagine a Aubameyang-Lacazette attack with Fekir behind them. That’s just scary

Arsenal are somewhat overstocked with attackers, however, with Danny Welbeck, Alexandre Lacazette, Alex Iwobi, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil so it seems unlikely Arsene Wenger would spend £50m on more competition without letting one or two leave this summer.
Fekir has been linked with the Gunners since 2015 but a deal has never materialised. He should be in the France squad for the 2018 World Cup this summer and may put himself in the shop window if he can impress for Didier Deschamps.
