Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the signing of Nabil Fekir

According to Transfer Market Web, Lyon star Nabil Fekir is closing in on a move to Arsenal during the January transfer window.

What’s the Story?

Despite serious interest from Atletico Madrid and Juventus, reports in Italy are claiming that Nabil Fekir is interested in a move to Arsenal, and the club are also keen to make a move, especially if Alexis Sanchez and/or Mesut Ozil decide against signing new contracts.

The 24-year-old is reportedly keen to enter discussions with Arsene Wenger over a move to North London in the January transfer window, as the Gunners look to ensure they reclaim a place in the top four.

How good has Fekir been this season?

In short, fantastic. Fekir has been one of the best players in Ligue 1 this season, outside of Paris Saint Germain’s squad anyway.

The 24-year-old, who is valued at £16million by Transfermarkt, has scored 13 goals in 17 games in all competitions for Lyon.

In a truly breakout season, Fekir has also been given his first cap for France and is on course to make the national team for the World Cup in Russia next summer.

Would Fekir be a good signing for Arsenal?

Arsenal are certainly stocked with talented attacking midfielders. Mesut Ozil, Aaron Ramsey, Alexis Sanchez, Santi Cazorla, Alex Iwobi and Jack Wilshere can all occupy the same area of the field.

If the Gunners were to move for Nabil Fekir, there would definitely need to be a serious clear out of some of their current midfield talents.
