Man Utd ‘one of three Premier League clubs fighting for long-term Arsenal transfer target Nabil Fekir’
MANCHESTER UNITED are one of three Premier League clubs interested in signing Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir in the summer, according to reports.
Fekir almost joined Liverpool from Lyon in the summer of 2018 but the move fell through after the Frenchman failed his medical.
The former Lyon man instead joined Spanish outfit Real Betis in 2019 for just over £17million.
Fekir has been a long-term transfer target for Arsenal but a move to the Emirates has never materialised.
Now reports are linking the midfielder with a Premier League move again.
Fichajes say that three Premier League clubs are interested in signing the World Cup winner with Betis setting a £26m price tag.
The clubs are Manchester United, Newcastle and Leicester City.
Manchester United could be looking for a midfielder who can rotate with Bruno Fernandes with Fekir seen as a profile that Erik ten Hag likes.
The midfielder has scored two goals and provided two assists in 14 LaLiga matches this season.
The 29 year old was a World Cup winner with France back in 2018 and won the Copa Del Rey with Betis in the 2021/2022 season.
Manchester United have also been linked with a move for Barcelona’s Andy Fati as well as Juventus forward Dusan Vlahovic.
It’s set to be a busy summer for the Red Devils with the club up for sale with fans desperate for new ownership.
