Arsene Wenger to end interest in Thomas Lemar in favour of Lyon ace Nabil Fekir
ARSENE WENGER will reportedly end his interest in Thomas Lemar, as he eyes up a move for Lyon star Nabil Fekir.
Arsenal was close to bringing in the Monaco winger to the Emirates on Deadline Day in a British-record bid of over £90million.
According to the Mirror, Arsenal have identified Fekir as a possible recruit, who could replace Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez as they near the end of their contract.
SunSport previously reported that the FA Cup champions were closing in on a £60million deal for the 24-year-old.
He could link up former team-mate Alexandre Lacazette quicker than expected after the striker moved to North London from Ligue 1 in a £52m deal.
