wants to stay at Real Betis despite interest from Arsenal, according to reports in Spain.

The 26-year-old was on the verge of joining in a £53million deal in 2018 but the move was called off and was then sold by to Real Betis last summer.

Fekir has impressed for Real Betis in his debut season at the Spanish club where he has scored seven goals and created a further six in 22 La Liga appearances.

It was then reported last month that has opened talks with Real Betis over a potential deal for the midfielder.

However, Spanish publication Marca now suggests Fekir has told Real Betis that he wants to stay despite attracting interest from several clubs around Europe.

And earlier this week, Betis’ president, Angel Haro, insisted that he had no plans to sell Fekir this summer:

‘Fekir is very satisfied with his stay in Seville, happy with the team and wants to continue. Our idea is to keep him on the team.

‘He is a high-quality player and from there we will see.

‘We don’t have any plans to sell this player.’

AC and have also been credited with interested in the international.
