ARSENAL are already preparing their list of summer transfer targets.

The Gunners strengthened their attacking line in January, bringing in Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Henrikh Mkhitayran at the end of the winter window.

Arsene Wenger’s side were linked with a host of attacking players after Alexis Sanchez joined Manchester United.

Bordeaux’s Malcom was touted as a potential new arrival in north London, while fellow Ligue 1 star Nabil Fekir was expected to join.

A deal failed to materialise for the midfielder, but according to the Daily MailArsenal have made the Lyon star their number one summer target.

Fekir scored in Lyon’s 3-1 win over Villarreal on Thursday night taking his tally for the season to 21 goals.

And Wenger wants a deal done before the 24-year-old heads to the World Cup in June.

However, Lyon may be reluctant to sell their star man after allowing former striker Alexandre Lacazette to join the Gunners in summer.

And Arsenal are unlikely to the only suitors for Fekir.
