Arsenal are eyeing a summer swoop for Real Betis star Nabil Fekir, according to reports stemming from Spain.

Arteta eyeing reinforcements

The subject of the attacking midfield spot at the Emirates has of course taken centre stage in the media chatter on the back of the 2020/21 campaign coming to a close.

This comes with Arsenal having struggled for central creativity throughout much of a disappointing season.

The eventual emergence of Emile Smith Rowe of course proved a huge plus, whilst Martin Odegaard did a solid if unspectacular job following his loan arrival during the January window.

Mikel Ateta, however, is evidently of the opinion that his side is in need of another spark.

This, in turn, led the board in north London to sanction a big-money swoop for Norwich City star Emi Buendia at the beginning of the month.

In the end, though, Arsenal were somewhat surprisingly beaten to the Argentine’s signing by Premier League rivals Aston Villa.

Fekir incoming?

But, as outlined above, if the latest word doing the rounds in the European media this weekend is anything to go by, then it appears that the Gunners’ search for creative reinforcements remains very much alive.

As per a report from Spanish outlet AS, one target being strongly considered by Arteta and co. is Nabil Fekir.

In fact, it is suggested that Arsenal have already tabled an opening offer for the Frenchman, once so heavily linked with a move to Liverpool.

Real Betis, for their part, have thus far stood firm in their demands for the club’s star man, with negotiations between the parties looking set to continue into the coming weeks.
