Arsenal ‘make contact with Lyon star Nabil Fekir over potential move’

Arsenal have reportedly contacted Nabil Fekir over a potential move this summer. 

Fekir looked set to be heading to the Premier League on the eve of last summer’s World Cup before a £53million switch to Liverpool collapsed late on over medical concerns.

According to L’Equipe, the Gunners are still deciding whether to make a move for the World Cup winning Frenchman with a move hinging on whether they can offload Mesut Ozil.

Ozil is proving to be a huge financial burden at the Emirates due to his huge £350,000-per-week wage and Unai Emery is struggling to sell him because of this.

The north London club are open to offers for him ahead of the transfer deadline as they look to collect extra funds for Emery to reinvest into his squad.

But the Gunners are yet to receive any formal approaches for their 30-year-old playmaker. 

The Premier League side did manage to completed the signing of 18-year-old Brazilian forward Gabriel Martinelli for £6million on Monday.

The youngster is one of the most promising talents in his homeland and recently earned a call up to the training squad before this summer’s Copa America.

He will join up with the Gunners for pre-season and fans will look forward to seeing him in action for the first time, particularly as he says he bases his game on Cristiano Ronaldo.

Arsenal are still working on deals to sign Celtic left back Kieran Tierney, 22, and St Etienne defender William Saliba.
