As reported by The Daily Mail, Arsenal are showing heavy interest in signing Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir in the summer transfer window.
The paper say that the in-form Ligue 1 star is Wenger’s number one priority in the upcoming window and is willing to pay the hefty £45m it would take to bring him to the Emirates.
There’s no doubting that Fekir is showing enormous talent this season. He’s scored a phenomenal 21 goals from his attacking midfield role at the French club, also creating five assists.
However, despite those impressive numbers, Arsenal fans have been left fuming by the links to his signature, believing that Wenger should be focusing on his defensive line and defensive midfield rather than looking to attract another attacking playmaker.
The Gunners have conceded a hefty 36 goals in the English Premier League this season, more than any other side in the top seven and fans are growing tired of poor defensive performances.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on the Fekir signing and why it would be a bad idea…
If true.. Where exactly will he play? Our attack is fine. Focus on getting a DM and improving our defence.
