Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has reportedly targeted Nabil Fekir for the upcoming transfer window. The Ligue 1 star is showing impressive game, he has scored 7 goals in 15 games so far this season. Intotal, he has scored 8 goals in 35 appearances since his move last year.
Lyon will not block his move as they are struggling financially. They will accept the offer around £8 million for their 21-year-old star. Reports have also claimed that Manchester City are also keeping tabs on him.
He himself has also admitted that he would prefer a move to Arsenal over Manchester City to work with manager Arsene Wenger.
While his father Mohamed Fekir told French publication Le Parisie about his French-Algerian son: “Nabil would like to finish first or second and play Champions League football with Lyon.”
Lyon are currently on second spot, they can even win the title this season so Champions League will not be a matter for him as he is likely to get in France.
