Lyon forward Nabil Fekir is being eyed as the man to replace Alexis Sanchez at Arsenal.
The French international has been one of the best players in Europe so far this season, filling the goalscoring void left by the departure of Alexandre Lacazette this term,
The 24 year-old has clocked up 11 goals in 11 Ligue outings so far this term, and has been key in helping his side to win their last five matches in all competitions.
Fekir is now said to be under the watchful eye of a number of big clubs, including Barcelona, but it is Arsenal who are thought to be most advanced in their bid to land the Lyon star.
The Gunners are said to have lined up a £60 Million offer to bring the left-footed talent to North London, which they are hoping will see them beat their rivals to his signature, as they look to fill the upcoming departure of Alexis Sanchez.
The Chilean is into the final year of his contract at the Emirates, and having tried to forge a move to Manchester City last summer, an exit before next season looks near-certain.
Sanchez brings fight, a winning attitude, goals and creativity to our side, and Fekir plays with a rare guile that would bring some fight into our squad, something which we would have lost next summer.
For me, Fekir would be a great option to replace the Chilean, in fact the best target I have heard in line as a possible replacement for Alexis, and I seriously hope the rumours prove true.
Is there a better realistic option out there to replace Alexis?
