Nabil Fekir’s impressive debut season with Real Betis has drawn attention from elsewhere.

Today’s edition of AS states Arsenal have ‘already taken an interest’ in the Frenchman.

The La Liga side have made their demands clear; ‘at least’ €50m, but no club have met the attacking midfielder’s asking price.

Betis need funds to balance the books [most likely due to the Covid-19 crisis] and they have ‘no choice’ but to sell the player.

Mikel Arteta’s side are ninth in the table with 40 points, trailing fifth place Manchester United by five points.

If the season were to be cut short and if the current positions in the table used for next season’s European competition, the Gunners will miss out on both the Champions League and Europa League.

Fekir wants to join a club who can offer him European football and if not, he would rather continue at Betis and wait.

According to the report, the playmaker would prefer waiting for Barcelona or Real Madrid.

AS’s report suggests the World Cup winner doesn’t fancy a move to Arsenal, even if Betis’ intention is to sell him to a club who meets their transfer demand.
