Arsenal renew interest in signing 28-year-old attacking midfielder next year

No doubts, Arsenal football club were one of the few busy Premier League clubs during the just concluded summer transfer window.

The North London club have showed their desire to compete with the likes of Manchester City, Manchester United, Liverpool and Chelsea this season and have brought in reinforcements during the summer.

The Gunners agreed deals to sign Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga, Aaron Ramsdale and Martin Odegaard to bolster current squad under manager Mikel Arteta.

That has quite worked out well so far, as Arsenal are currently sitted in 9th position on the Premier League table after playing seven league matches so far.

However, it is believed that the Gunners are still very much keen on improving their midfield options next year and have renewed their interest in signing Real Betis attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir.

The 28-year-old France International, who joined Real Betis from Ligue 1 side Lyon has been an important member of the first-team squad since he made the move in 2019.

Nabil Fekir was quite impressive for Real Betis last season, scoring five goals and registering six assists in 38 appearances in all competitions.

The playmaker has also begun the 2021/2022 season on a very good note, scoring twice and also creating two assists in nine appearances so far.

His impressive displays in midfield is said to have attracted the interest of several clubs across England, but according to reports from The Sun, Arsenal are said to be back in for his signature.

The reports further claimed that the Emirates side are ready to battle with West Ham in order to agree a deal to bring the Frenchman to England next year.

That said, Arsenal are hellbent on improving their attacking midfielder options which includes Martin Odegaard and Emile Smith-Rowe and view Nabil Fekir as a worth addition to their squad.
