Gunners in big-money move for Fekir
Arsenal could be heading towards a £60 million swoop for Lyon’s Nabil Fekir but may face competition from Barcelona, according to the Mail.
It reports that the Gunners “are deep in discussions about a move for the France international,” who has scored 11 club goals this season.
They hope the 24-year-old can be reunited with ex-Lyon colleague Alexandre Lacazette at the Emirates Stadium amid continuing uncertainty over the futures of both Alexis Sanchezand Mesut Ozil.
The fly in the ointment, the Mail warns, is that Barcelona may yet attempt to bring Fekir to the Camp Nou.
However, it says that will only happen “if they are unable to push through a deal for Liverpool midfielder Philippe Coutinho.”
