When Nabil Fekir is mentioned in a transfer story, most would assume that it involves Liverpool.
However, other Premier League clubs have seemingly entered the fray after the Lyon playmaker’s proposed move to Anfield collapsed.
According to France Football, Chelsea have now entered the race to sign Fekir, whose past knee injury proved to be too much of a concern for Liverpool.
With only two days left until the transfer window closes, any club looking to recruit the midfielder needs to get a move on.
Arsenal have not been mentioned in recent reports about a late attempt to nab the Lyon player, but some of their fans have been discussing the possibility.

Fekir predominantly plays as a number 10, but he can also be useful out wide on the right, or up front on his own.
Some Arsenal supporters believe that the Frenchman could be an asset in Unai Emery’s team, while others think that he is not needed.
We should be in for Fekir IMO – available and can play RW

The tears of the Liverpool fans will be the sweetest juice known to man

I think Mkhi and Fekir are a bit too similar

Too costly imo

No for me a very very average player. I’d rather give one of our young players a chance than spend £60m on him

And his familiarity/friendship with Lacazette

I don’t think we should get another player who prefers to play in the middle and throw him out on the wing. We need an out and out winger who will be direct and provide width

Need a LW not a RW
