Arsenal willing to spend £45 million for Nabil Fekir
According to the report of Steve Stammers of the Daily Mail,Fekir is Arsene Wenger’s top target and wants to wrap up the deal before the FIFA World Cup in Russia begins.He also provided-
“Wenger has tracked Fekir’s development closely,while he has also been watched by Arsenal’s French scout Gilles Grimandi.”
Fekir has scored an impressive 21 goals in all competitions and contributed 6 assists in Ligue 1 justifying the hefty proposed fee.His technique and vision are world class and has the needed quality in front of goal which will see him easily fit in the brand of football Wenger likes to play.
Though Arsenal have more than many midfield options but most of them under performed this season and Ozil and Mkhitaryan are likely to be features of starting 11 beyond this season.
It’s obvious that Wenger’s focus should be more on the defensive side of his team but if he adds Fekir,his team’s attacking threat will go to a different level.
