Arsenal are reportedly closing in on the £60 million signing of Lyon and France playmaker, Nabil Fekir (via The Mirror).
As the January window comes closer, the transfer stories are going into overdrive, particularly where Arsenal are concerned.
The future of Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil are likely to be away from the Emirates meaning that Arsene Wenger and Arsenal are going to need to sign replacements.
For a while, Monaco’s Thomas Lemar seemed the likeliest candidate with a club-record deal between the two sides reportedly collapsing on deadline day.
Now, it seems that Arsene Wenger is turning his attentions elsewhere with reports that the Gunners are closing in on a £60 million deal for Nabil Fekir.

Fekir is a 24-year-old attacking midfielder for Lyon. He has been linked with the Gunners in the past but has suffered a number of injuries in recent years.
However, the 2015 Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year is enjoying an incredible season, scoring 11 goals in 11 league matches.
Nabil Fekir would be a very good signing for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal. The attacking midfielder seems ready to take his game to the next level and the Gunners would be an ideal place.
