​Arsenal open talks to sign Real Betis midfielder Fekir

Arsenal have opened talks with Real Betis to sign midfielder Nabil Fekri.

The Gunners are set to lose Dani Ceballos in the summer, as he is heading back to Real Madrid when his loan spell expires.

And now they are set to go after 26-year-old Fekir when he was leaving Lyon, but Betis got the deal done instead.

The Daily Starsays Fekir scoring seven goals and getting six assists in La Liga has impressed the Gunners.

Now they are in for him again.

All transfer decisions will be made with consideration to the COVID-19 outbreak, but Fekir moving a year after joining Betis is a strong possibility.
