Barcelona scouts full of praise for Real Madrid target Fekir

Barcelona management are keeping close tabs on Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir.

Mundo Deportivo says while Fekir is not on their shopping list, he can count on many fans inside Barca.

Indeed, one top scout remarked to a director this season: "The good one is Fekir. How he plays!"

Barca sports director Eric Abidal is close to Fekir and remains in regular contact with the France international.

However, should Betis be prepared to sell, it is more likely Real Madrid will move for the midfielder ahead of Barca.

The Catalans are currently focused on closing a deal with Juventus for their midfielder Miralem Pjanic.
