The latest player to be linked to Arsenal in recent days is Nabir Fekir, the Lyon attacking midfielder has had an outstanding season so far in the French League, however before Fekir popped out on radar, Thomas Lemar occupied that spot of being wanted by Arsenal to replace Sanchez but the price tag on Lemar and potential competing bid from other clubs may mean Arsenal will not get him and so need to look for alternative.
Is Fekir an alternative to Lemar or a plan B in case Arsenal did not get Lemar? or Fekir is actually the main target instead of Lemar now? in any case, we considered their head to head.
On the basis of stats, Nabir Fekir is better than Thomas Lemar, he is also more experience if the year they both broke into the senior club and National team are considered, this is supported by Fekir’s captaincy responsibilities at Lyon.
NABIR FEKIR 2017/2018 HIGHLIGHTS:
THOMAS LEMAR 2017/18 HIGHLIGHTS:
On the basis of their attributes, Lemar’s valuation of £90m plus makes Fekir’s £60m rumoured amount look cheap.
Is Arsenal actually after Fekir? or this is being talked-up by his father? January cannot come any sooner, but if Arsenal manages to land him, he certainly looks the part and will pick him over Lemar.
