Arsenal joins the race for French World Cup winner

Arsenal has been linked with a return for Nabil Fekir as they continue to bolster their team.

Reports have linked the Gunners with a move for the Frenchman since 2018 and they might finally get their man.

The Real Betis star won the World Cup with France in 2018, but he has struggled to make the team in recent matches.

Estadio Deportivo via Sun Sports claims that he is looking to play for a top team so that he can raise his profile in the game and get back in the France team.

Arsenal will be in the market for a new attacking player in the summer, as it looks impossible for them to sign Martin Odegaard permanently.

The report says they consider the midfielder an option that can continue the fine work that the Norwegian has done in London so far.

Reports have also linked Fekir with a move to Liverpool before, claiming he already agreed on everything before a problem in his medical scuppered the deal.

His current release clause stands at £79 million. However, the report claims that Arsenal will get a discount if they are serious about adding him to their squad.

    A discount on “only” £79 million! Well as long as its a 95+% discount, it looks a certainty, eh!

      £79 million?
      Transfer market lists his current value at 25mill which is usually generous.
      In this debt ridden covid market I’d say the inconsistent injury prone 27 year old could be prised away for 11mill and Reiss Nelson.

    we should have pursued him when the possibility was first raised when we were sniffing around his former club for Laca…based on what we’ve seen so far, he would have given us a couple of good years in the midfield then we could have sold him for a decent profit…his only downside appeared to be his propensity to land on the training table for a short spell each and every season, but that’s par for the course here anyways

    Fekir has been ‘linked ‘ with Arsenal for 5 years. Just like Marco Reus
    Raphael Varane Thomas Lemar Julian Draxler and Kalidou Koulibali they are seen at Heathrow every summer and sighted looking at houses in North London. Unfortunately like the Lochness monster they have not yet signed da ting 🙂😁😊

    Big fan of Fekir as a player (when at his best), always wonder how it would have been if we’d bought him shortly after Laca signed. Not sure if the time to have signed him has passed though – is he as hungry as he used to be?
