Real Betis reps in France to meet Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir

Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir is interesting Real Betis.

Marca says at Betis, Fekir is seen as a possible replacement for Giovani Lo Celso.

The Argentine midfielder is Tottenham Hotspur's main target as they look to wrap up a deal before the close of the Premier League's transfer window on August 8.

Fekir plays in a position that is very similar to Lo Celso and their styles are comparable too.

A delegation from Betis have travelled to France to see whether the player would be keen on moving to the Estadio Benito Villamarin, with Fekir always having stated his desire to play in Spain.

The 25-year-old's agents are aware of Los Verdiblancos' interest, though the move would only occur if Lo Celso departs.
