With the departure of Alexandre Lacazette from Olympique Lyonnais, the city of Lyon has found its new hero immensely and this guy is making headlines on newspapers of every city around the globe – ‘Nabil Fekir’.
Nabil Fekir is Olympique Lyonnais graduate and have deep love playing under ‘Lyon’ badge. But like every professional – he wants to grow and establish himself in the hearts of people. Fekir’s recent performance have invited intrest from giant clubs of Europe.
And of all the clubs, Fekir seems determined to join Arsenal. A reunion with Alexandre Lacazette as well as opportunity to work with one of the best manager France have ever produced – Arsene Wenger. With Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil determined to leave Arsenal by the summer at most, Nabil Fekir is one of the ‘star’ signing which can backup confidence of the squad as a whole.
Fekir is one of the most versatile player on the attacking side of the game around the Europe who can feature on both the wings as well as in the middle. Fekir can even play as an attacking midfielder when needed. That gives option to feature him around the attacking side of the game.
The statistics prove that the chemistry between Lacazette and Fekir is phenomenal. Fekir was instrumental behind Lacazette’s superb scoring record previous season. If Fekir joins Arsenal – he will be deployed in one of the wings with Lacazette playing in the central forward role. The build up play between Lacazette and Fekir will be going to be vital in the performance curve of Arsenal afterwards.
Fekir is a short guy with 5-ft-8-in but is someone who rarely disappears in between the games and possesses potential strength to feature in English style of football. He is someone who can score and at the same time make for others. Nabil Fekir is a perfect Alexis Sanchez replacement with both possessing quality of working hard every minute and at the same time passionate about the game.
With Jack Wilshere back in his real ability he can easily wear Mesut Ozil’s shoe in and around the game.
So how could Arsenal line-up with Nabil Fekir? (Expecting both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil to leave Arsenal)
