Olympique Lyon playmaker Nabil Fekir would prefer a move to Arsenal over a move to Premier League rivals, Manchester City and Manchester United, according to his dad.

The Lyon captain Fekir has been in good form this season having scored 12 goals in 15 appearances he has attracted the interest of so many clubs but domestically and foreign.

Fekir has returned back to form after he suffered a cruciate ligament injury which is evident in his current statistics as per his goal rate and appearance for his club.

The France international is been tipped to replace Mesut Ozil or Alexis Sanchez, who both set to leave at the end of the current campaign.

And there are certainly reasons why the Emirates could be a distinct possibility for Fekir, should he decide to leave Lyon at the end of the campaign.

Fekir’s father has previously suggested that his son sees Arsenal as the ideal place to continue his career.

“Nabil would like to finish 1st or 2nd and play Champions League football with Lyon,” he said in 2015.

“If he leaves, it will be for Arsenal. It’s the only club that can enable him to progress, with Arsene Wenger.

“He will not go to Manchester City to sit on the bench.”

Fekir himself has ruled out the possibility of joining another French club — specifically PSG — if he leaves Lyon and has stated the move to the Premier League is something that appeals to him.

“When you are Lyonnais, the only attractive French club remains Lyon,” he told Le Parisien this week. “There isn’t another which tempts me more than that.

“Spain and England are two very attractive championships

“Me, I like the game, the beautiful game. The teams that are only in the duel do not interest me. That’s not football.”
