Arsenal in danger to miss out signing of Real Betis playmaker

By | July 22, 2021

Arsenal-linked Nabil Fekir has revealed he is happy at the La Liga club Real Betis and he’s not concerned about future plans as his only focus is on helping his side clinch a European spot finish in the league this season.

The Gunners are interested in adding a number 10 to their ranks this summer and are keen on making Real Madrid-owned youngster Martin Odegaard’s move permanent.

However, the Norwegian is less likely to stay at Arsenal beyond his current stint and the club are considering other possible targets, including Real Betis midfielder Fekir.

But the French star has revealed he is currently happy at the Benito Villamarin and his only focus is on helping them finish the current season inside the European spots.

Quizzed whether he is happy at Real Betis, Nabil told Spanish daily AS: “For now I am happy at Betis.

“We are going to do everything possible to go to Europe [next season]. It’s what I think about now.”

He explained that he doesn’t know what the future holds for him, and stressed he’ll evaluate where he is at in his career after each year.

“In football we can never know how the future plays out, we must look at it season by season.”

Mikel Arteta’s team are also keeping a close eye on Borussia Dortmund’s Julian Brandt as an Odegaard alternative along with the former Lyon star. All Rights Reserved 2019
