Arsenal and Liverpool target given permission to complete move

Nabil Fekir will finally be quitting Lyon this season, it seems. According to reports in France, the playmaker has already asked his current employers to chisel out a deal for his departure.

Fekir was just whiskers away from joining Liverpool last summer, but the deal fell through. Apparently, the Merseysiders haven’t shown the same intent in trying to sign him this season as they did last summer.

Fekir has also been on Arsenal’s radar all summer. Lyon were offering him at a cheaper price to the Gunners as an alternative for the £70m-rated Wilfried Zaha. However, they have failed to lodge an official a bid and now a Spanish club has steered clear of them in the pole position to sign the playmaker.

As per reports, Fekir has asked his club to agree on a fee with Real Betis in the next 48 hours. The reports surfaced after claims about Napoli offering the 25-year-old a provisional contract. The Frenchman is expected to travel to Sevilla to seal the deal with his possible new employers in the coming days.
