Gunners step up chase to sign rising star for bargain fee.
Arsenal could be set to step up their interest in signing highly-rated Lyon youngster Nabil Fekir this January after learning that £8m may be enough to lure him away, according to the Daily Express.
The 21-year-old has been in superb form this season, scoring six goals in 12 games from midfield, and establishing himself as one of the brightest prospects in Ligue 1.
Arsenal are not exactly desperate for new attacking players, but could be tempted to pounce for this highly promising Frenchman as he could move for cheap this winter.
With Aaron Ramsey somewhat off form this term and injuries to other attacking midfield players such as Mesut Ozil and Theo Walcott, it may be that Fekir could have a crucial role to play in this Arsenal side if he does make the move to the Emirates Stadium in the upcoming January transfer window.
Arsene Wenger is known for raiding his native France for its best young talent and Fekir is the latest to come onto his radar.
