According to football.london, Arsenal are back in the race to sign Nabil Fekir after his scintillating start to the season.
Fekir, who is valued at £18million by Transfermarkt, has been in incredible form so far this campaign, netting 12 times in just 15 games and proving why he one of the most dangerous players in Ligue 1.
There has been a history of rumours linking Fekir with a move to the Emirates. In 2015, the French international’s father spoke to the press regarding his son’s future and stated;
“Nabil would like to finish 1st or 2nd and play Champions League football with Lyon. If he leaves, it’ will be for Arsenal. It’s the only club that can enable him to progress, with Arsene Wenger. He will not go to Manchester City to sit on the bench.”
Arsenal fans are also suggesting that new man at the Emirates Alexandre Lacazette may have some influence over a potential Fekir arrival, with the two players remaining close friends from their time together at Lyon. And the Gunners faithful were quick to take to Twitter to express their excitement…
OH THE THINGS I'D DO FOR FEKIR AT ARSENAL

Fekir has a conviction when he strikes the ball & drives with purpose. Something that Lacazette has with his finishing, would like the pair

Özil and Sanchez to leave please as there head has clearly turned to City and United.
Reckon we should bring someone decent like Fekir. He'd really suit our style. I'd then probably add Lemar/Draxler/Reus to cover the wing.
And sell Walcott….. please!

Fully behind the opinion that Arsenal should sign Fekir

Although I don't think Wengz wont break the bank again, Fekir will be such a good signing. Imagine him and Laca in the forward trio 😍 #AFC
