Must Leave On Good Terms – Agent of Arsenal Target Nabil Fekir Opens Up On Transfer Talk

However, it would appear that the north London giants are ready to make a bid for the player before the World Cup gets underway in June.

With the reason being that they fear the 24-year-old could play a starring role which would see his price tag rocket.

Jean-Pierre Bernes, the player's agent, conceded that if there was a decision to be made in the summer, then Fekir would like to have a conversation with the Lyon hierarchy and find an amicable solution. Bernes refused to rule out a move for Fekir this summer.

"If at the end of the season there was possibly a decision to be made, and this is not the case right now, we would sit down with the president [Jean-Michel Aulas] and we would find the right solution".

Fekir, 24, is likely to be hot property this summer, with a number of top clubs including Arsenal battling for his signature.

"First and foremost, we would respect Lyon".

"Lyon is his home, we would not like to go out savagely or after a fight. Nabil is at a big French club, if not the biggest".

"We know very well that, at some point, we may be able to ask questions about a move", continued Bernes.

He added: "When you leave your training club, to whom we owe everything, we leave in good conditions".

Wenger and his chief scout Gilles Grimandi have been tracking Fekir's progress closely according to The Sun. He has that potential. A career, it is built, little by little.

And the potential £45m switch has perhaps moved a step closer following after Fekir's representative told Le Dauphine Libere his client has ambitions of playing for a top 10 club in Europe.

He stressed the importance of making sure Fekir leaves Lyon with the club's best wishes. "He is not in a drastic situation".
