Real Betis playmaker Nabil Fekir is eager to make a move to the Premier League this summer amid reported interest from Arsenal, according to journalist Charles Watts.

Gunners failed to secure the transfer of Emiliano Buendia, while they are still in negotiations over Martin Odegaard’s possible move.

It means Fekir could be another target for the Gunners, with the club reportedly showing interest in the player in March.

“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.”

In 2016, former Arsenal man Laurent Koscielny has shared his praise for Fekir, claiming he is “a bit like Lionel Messi” and has “huge technical skills”.
