Speaking to magazine Onze Mundial (translated by Sports Illustrated), Fekir denied claims that he was looking to leave Lyon, but he didn’t rule out a transfer happening in the future:
“Yeah, I heard. I heard, but there was never anything concrete. We’ll see what the future holds. I’m at Lyon for now. I’m happy here. In football, you never know what can happen. It depends what the ball wants. You need to be prepared for anything.”
However, the Frenchman has been prolific in front of goal this season with 19 goals in 28 appearances. At 24, he could yet be a future signing for the Gunners with both Mkhitaryan (29) and Ozil (29) five years older, and closer to the end of their careers.
