Arsenal’s chances of landing Lyon midfielder,Nabil Fekir is on the positive side after Ex-Lyon boss Bruno Genesio hinted he will leave.
Fekir was initially offered to the Gunners for a bargain £30million and the former boss has confirmed he would be open to a move to the Premier League because his time at Lyon is “coming to the end”.
“I think that he [Fekir] was very frustrated with his cancelled transfer to Liverpool at the beginning of the season,Genesio told French radio station RMC last week.
“He made the World Cup, he had some injuries. He certainly did not feel strong enough to take on the role of leader, which he had done the previous season, relaying technical information on the pitch.
“Nabil is coming to the end of a cycle in Lyon. He has experienced a lot of things here.
“I think that he needs a new challenge, to push his limits, and to be self-critical. Because we know, we always need a personal challenge in a career, and to ask questions of ourselves.”
