ARSENAL target Nabil Fekir’s agent has refused to rule out the Frenchman leaving Lyon this summer.

Arsene Wenger has reportedly identified the forward as his priority target at the end of the season and is preparing a £45m bid.

The Gunners have bucked tradition by splashing out this season, breaking their transfer record twice to bring in strikers Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

They look set to continue that trend to sign Fekir, who has netted 21 times so far this season.

Last week the Daily Mail reported that Wenger is keen to tie up a deal before the 24-year-old heads to Russia for this summer’s World Cup.

And now Fekir’s agent Jean Pierre Bernes has added fuel to the fire by suggesting that his client could seek a move.

“Will Fekir still be at OL next season? It’s too early to talk about it,” he told Telefoot.

“We have time, that’s the straight line. There are important goals and he is already in a big club.

“After considering my relationship with [OL president] Jean-Michel Aulas, we will make the best decision.”

Arsenal are desperate for fresh faces as they look to keep up with the Premier League’s elite following a miserable season.They’re currently sixth in the table and look set to miss out on Champions League football again, unless they can go all the way in the Europa League.

And Wenger’s side have another chance of winning silverware this weekend as they take on Manchester City at Wembley in the Carabao Cup final.
