The French international was close to joining Liverpool last summer before the move collapsed at the eleventh hour, while Arsenal had also been keeping tabs.  

There had been talk of the European Champions rekindling their interest, but Betis swooped for the playmaker.

Lyon chief Jean-Michel Aulas indicated at the start of the window that Fekir would be allowed to leave this summer.

Manager Sylvinho gave permission for Fekir to leave the club’s pre-season training camp and travel to Spain to discuss personal terms over a transfer.

Fekir had made it clear he had no intention of signing a new contract, with his deal at the Ligue 1 outfit up in June 2020.
