However, the Gunners may have a fight on their hands if they want to sign the 21-year-old as the French side do not want to sell one of their prize assets. They are in the process of moving to a new stadium, and club president Jean-Michel Aulas wants to keep their young team together for at least the next year as a result.

The Frenchman has helped his side to the top of Ligue 1 with eight goals and six assists in 20 appearances this season, and is highly rated by many in the game.

PSG have also shown an interest in the player, but it is unlikely that he will be sold to a direct rival. If Fekir is allowed to leave Les Gones then it could cost Arsene Wenger £25 million to prise him away from the Stade Gerland side.
