Real Madrid coach Zidane targets Betis ace Fekir

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is pushing to prise Nabil Fekir away from Real Betis.

The France international only moved to Seville last summer from Olympique Lyon, but his form has already convinced Zidane he can fit into Real's midfield, says AS.

Betis are aware of Zidane's interest and have immediately slapped a €50m price-tag on Fekir.

Such a valuation has already scared off the likes of Arsenal and AC Milan, however Zidane remains keen.

The Frenchman likes the idea of adding another countryman to his squad, with Karim Benzema, Raphaël Varane, Alphonse Areola and Ferland Mendy already on the books.
