Arsenal are in need of midfield reinforcements ahead of next season, especially after the north London side lost Aaron Ramsey to Juventus on a free transfer this summer.
The club currently have one of the best attacks in the Premier League, however their defensive and midfield options could definitely do with improving, thus we’d think they’d be mad to turn down the chance to bring Fekir to the Emirates in the coming months.
The Gunners don’t have Champions League football to offer to any potential signings this summer, therefore, if they’re offered the chance to sign a player of Fekir’s quality, they should 100% take up that opportunity.
Will Unai Emery’s side end up signing Fekir this summer for what would be a bargain price of £30M? Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see.
