Arsenal may have resorted to cashing in on their contract rebels Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez but they cannot sell the aforementioned stars without signing their replacements.
French versatile attacker Nabil Fekir has become the most wanted player at Arsenal and if reports making the rounds is anything to go by, then the Gunners may just be on the verge of sealing a deal for the star.
Alexis Sanchez has stalled over a new deal with Arsenal despite the Gunners offering him a wage that is overboard. He will be free to speak with any club of his choice in January if he fails to sign a new deal and the Gunners are not willing to let him go on a free.
While Arsenal tried to replace Alexis Sanchez with Thomas Lemar in the summer, the deal failed on transfer deadline day and now Arsene Wenger has opted for a move for the former teammate of Alexandre Lacazette, Nabil Fekir.
According to the Daily Express, Arsenal have advanced talks to seal a deal for the 24-year-old attacker in a deal believed to be around £60m(€68m). Arsenal are looking to use recouped funds from the sale of Ozil and Sanchez and if this is done, Fekir would become the most expensive Arsenal player ever.
There is no telling of Lyon will allow their potent attacker to leave half way through the season. Having scored 12 goals in 15 appearances this term, he is their best player.
Alexis Sanchez is currently linked with a move to Manchester City and if they can get him for £30m, he would have come too cheap for the player of his calibre.
