Barcelona scout Lyon star Nabil Fekir ahead of potential transfer

Fekir scored at Goodison Park in the Europa League earlier this season

Thursday, November 9, 2017

Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernandez is scouting Arsenal target Nabil Fekir.

The 24-year-old has been in fine form for Lyon this season after being named captain in the summer.

Arsenal, who are long-term admirers of the Frenchman, are said to be tracking him in case one of Alexis Sanchez or Mesut Ozil leaves.

But now the Gunners have been dealt a hammer blow after it was revealed by Marca that Barca are extensively scouting Fekir too.

The Spanish giants' interest in the attacking midfielder has already been reported, but it has now transpired sporting director Fernandez is personally watching him.

Fernandez went to scout Fekir during their win over Everton last week in the Europa League and he will continue to do so in the build-up to the January transfer window.
