Arsenal have reportedly opened talks with Real Betis over a summer transfer swoop for Nabil Fekir.

Fekir was close to joining Liverpool from Lyon last summer, but the deal collapsed as the Reds had concerns over the France international's injury record.

He ended up joining Real Betis for £17million - a third of what Liverpool had been set to pay for him - and has gone on to score seven goals and post six assists in 22 La Liga appearances.

And now Arsenal are eyeing the attacking midfielder as a potential replacement for Dani Ceballos this summer.

That's according to the Daily Star, who says the Gunners have made an enquiry to the Spanish club over Fekir.
