Nabil Fekir once looked a dead certainty of being a Premier League player back in 2018 as it was thought that Liverpool would be looking to make a move for him, however he has since been playing in Spain for Real Betis.
The French international has fallen a little to the wayside since then, but has been performing well enough to attract interest from some of England’s biggest clubs once again, with Arsenal the latest thought to hold an interest in the playmaker.
He managed to score five goals and provide a total of six assists for his Real Betis teammates in the previous campaign, although that is a shade of what he was achieving when he was at Olympique de Lyonnais before his switch south to Spain.
It is understood that they could look to revisit the situation after recently missing out on Norwich City star playmaker, Emi Buendia, as he will now join former Arsenal man and compatriot, Emi Martinez at Aston Villa after completing a big money move earlier this month. Perhaps the duo can spend time together and play the best online casino games together during their time in Birmingham?
The Gunners had Martin Odegaard playing for them in that position last season after he arrived on loan from Real Madrid but whether they look to try and bring him back to the Emirates Stadium could rely on a number of different factors.
One man that would be ‘absolutely keen’ to play in the Premier League and potentially provide Mikel Arteta’s side with the creativity that they have arguably lacked at points is Fekir. It is claimed the 27-year-old could be available for a transfer fee of around £26 million, which would see the Gunners spend less than they would have if they were successful in their pursuit for Buendia.
According to Goal’s Charles Watts, who knows a lot about Arsenal and has good connections, the journalist has revealed that the player would be keen on a move to the Premier League, and Arsenal could be an option.
“Another player that they like that plays in that sort of creative area is Nabil Fekir,” said Watts. “He’s over in Spain at the moment with Betis. He would absolutely be keen on a move, not just to Arsenal, but to the Premier League – he missed out on his big move to Liverpool before,” he added.
Indeed, whether the Gunners decide to make a move for him is anyone’s guess at the moment, although there will be those that use an online casino Australia has to offer that will be keen to see a player who has the talent that Fekir has to arrive at the Emirates Stadium and fire them back into Europe, at the very least.
