Lyon forward Nabil Fekir maintained his impressive start to the season with a man-of-the-match display in his side’s 3-2 win against Monaco on Friday night, and Arsenal fans believe that he could be the man to replace the unsettled Alexis Sanchez.
It seems more and more likely that the Chile international will either leave the Emirates during the January transfer window or next summer when his contract is due to expire, and Gunners manager Arsene Wenger will need to start thinking about who could replace the influential 28-year-old.
Meanwhile, Fekir has been producing some standout performances from an attacking midfield role for the French outfit this term, and he scored two and assisted one in the victory against the Ligue 1 leaders on Friday.
It means that he has now netted seven goals and provided three assists in 11 appearances in all competitions throughout the current campaign, and his form hasn’t gone unnoticed.
Arsenal supporters were quick to react to his latest showing via social media, and while some said that the 24-year-old should be signed to “replace Sanchez”, others would ‘love to see him at the club’.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Fekir would be good for Arsenal, he's been playing out of his skin recently and last night just shows everyone his capabilities

Arsenal should've bought Nabil Fekir. There was no demand for him. He will cost ¥450m next season
