Arsenal have reportedly identified Nabil Fekir as their priority attacking target ahead of the summer transfer window.

Fekir has scored 55 goals in 145 games for Lyon since breaking into the first-team back in 2013 but the 24-year-old has consistently been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent seasons.

The Gunners have been well aware of Fekir for some time and French scout Gilles Grimandi has closely monitored the forward’s development since his rise in Ligue 1.
