Arsenal target hints at transfer possibilities, dad picked Wenger as mentor

Lyon forward Nabil Fekir has been repeatedly linked with a move to Arsenal in the couple of years he's found himself raising to prominence. The 22-year-old has been out due to a long term injury, but rumours about his future at the Ligue 1 club haven't stopped and a timely return to fitness is only going to encourage more.

Last year, his father, Mohamed Fekir, also admitted he'd want his son to join Arsenal, where he can grow as a player rather than sit on the bench at Manchester City.

Mohamed Fekir said: "Nabil would like to finish 1st or 2nd and play Champions League football with Lyon. If he leaves, it'll be for Arsenal. It's the only club that can enable him to progress, with Arsene Wenger. He will not go to Manchester City to sit on the bench.”

Recently, French newspaper L'Equipe also confirmed Fekir is likely to move the Premier League, and mentioned his destination could be Arsenal.

Since then the player has been asked about his future at Lyon by French magazine France Football, to which he replied: "I especially like Spain. I am also attentive to England."

He also explained that the next two months could decide his future, and a lot will be dependent on Lyon's Champions League qualification.

He added: "We will soon study the situation in the off season... My future lies in the next two months, both through my performance, but also a qualification of Lyon in the Champions League. All that will count."
