The Gunners already have a strong attacking contingent, led by Mesut Ozil, record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Alexandre Lacazette. There are important goals and he is already in a big club.

And the Daily Mail claims Wenger wants a deal done before Fekir, 24, joins his global team-mates at the World Cup.

Arsenal are likely to return for the Northern Ireland defender in the summer if West Brom go down and he also interests Manchester City and Leicester.

The Frenchman has spent his entire career with Les Gones, but a move to Arsenal could be a realistic option in the summer with his father having previously admitted that he would favour a move to the Emirates Stadium.

The club's director of football Ralf Rangnick, however, has denied suggestions that the player wants to leave the club and insists there is no need for Leipzig to panic. "There is still plenty of time to talk, we are in no rush", he said.

And according to the Daily Mail, Arsenal have made him their number one transfer target for next summer.

Fekir scored in Lyon's 3-1 Europa League win over Villarreal on Thursday night, and. has been compared to France legend Youri Djorkaeff, who helped his country become World Cup back in 1998.

"Is this my last season at Lyon?".
