Lyon president Aulas confirms contract plans for Arsenal target Fekir

Olympique Lyon president Jean Michel Aulas admits he is willing to upgrade Nabil Fekir's contract.

The midfield schemer has spoken openly about interest from Arsenal and a willingness to hear from the London giants about a summer move.

Meanwhile, Aulas says: "For Nabil, I saw one of his agents for the first time here for a while. Meanwhile, it is understood that Nabil would change agents, that's the impression I got.

"But I do want, not extend to him because he is under contract until 2019, but positively to update the terms of his contract."

Fekir, meanwhile, stated earlier this week: "I am a fighter and I love playing well, I'm not happy if I do not play. It was only my first season at the top level and at Arsenal, with the big players there, it will be difficult to play for them, perhaps. You never know."
