“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.”
The signing of Henrikh Mkhitaryan from Manchester United, and the contract renewal of Mesut Ozil does make a bid from Arsenal for Fekir far more unlikely now.
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.
