The Daily Mirror is reporting that Arsenal have been given the chance to sign the 25-year-old France international in a cut-price deal from Lyon this summer.
The same article states that Fekir – who came close to signing for Liverpool FC last season – would cost just £30m, which would still leave Unai Emery will some additional funds to sign other players.
According to the same story, the World Cup winner could be a more realistic target for the Gunners rather than Crystal Palace’s £80m-rated Wilfried Zaha.
The Daily Mirror go on to add that Arsenal won’t be signing Zaha unless the Gunners are able to convince their London rivals to significantly drop their price in the current transfer window.
Arsenal haven’t signed any new players in the summer transfer window despite being linked with a host of new additions since losing 4-1 to Chelsea FC in the Europa League final in Baku.
The Gunners don’t have Champions League football to offer new recruits after Arsenal finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last term.
Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey completed his free transfer to Serie A giants Juventus earlier this week to leave a void in midfield in Emery’s team.
