Arsenal fans react as World Cup winner Fekir reportedly nears move to Real Betis

Some Arsenal fans have taken to social media to react to increasing reports that Nabil Fekir is set to join Real Betis.

The World Cup-winning Frenchman is on the verge of sealing a €25 million/£22.6 million move to the Benito Villamarín Stadium, as reported by The Evening Standard.

The player has just one year remaining on his contract at Lyon, and club president Jean-Michel Aulas is cashing in before he can walk for nothing next summer.

£22.6 million is around half of what the star almost joined Liverpool for last summer.

The 26-year-old came within a whisker of becoming a Red, but the move collapsed at the medical stage.

Earlier this summer, Arsenal were reportedly offered (Mirror) the chance to sign Fekir for just £30 million.

It looks highly unlikely that the Gunners will be able to do a deal now, with Betis having agreed a five-year contract for the playmaker, who will supposedly be a Giovani Lo Celso replacement.

Arsenal fans react

Many Arsenal fans were aghast to learn of the details surrounding Fekir’s proposed transfer.

The club have struggled so far in the transfer market, with many feeling frustrated by ‘lost cause’ pursuits for Wilfried Zaha.
