Nabil Fekir returns to top

Spanish Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir my return to the top level. He is already of interest to Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter.

Nabil Fekir's best time was his performance for Lyon. It was from there that the experts predicted the road to the big football for him. In the summer of 2018, he almost moved to Liverpool, but the Scousers considered the transfer too dangerous due to the midfielder's injured knee.

A year later, Fekir unexpectedly transferred to Betis under the management of Quique Setien. But the Sevillian team was never able to something bigger, either because of the departure of the manager, or because of insufficient investment and lack of stability. As a result, Nabil has been in Betis for almost two years, where he appeared on the pitch 63 times in all tournaments, scored 10 goals and  made 13 assists.

Recently, the Frenchman has noticeably improved. His run across half the pitch and a goal against Levante in the style of early Messi is worth mentioning amongst other things. Therefore, the European giants have an interest in the 27-year-old midfielder again Possible options include London’s Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Inter.

First of all, it would be interesting to see him at Arsenal. For the player, this would not be a particularly big leap in career, but an opportunity to become one of the main characters of the current squad of Mikel Arteta. Fekir's transfer to the Gunners' camp is possible only if they do not reach an agreement with Martin Odegaard. We do not see a place for him at Manchester United, since there is Pogba and Fernandes, performing the same functions together. For Liverpool, Fekir would be useful to replace Firmino, but we doubt he can handle that amount of work.

The last option with Inter is quite possible. After Christian Eriksen has not been able to play under Conte's management, Fekir can take his place and further improve his progress in the center of the field, as well as his counter-attacking play. In any case, Fekir has something to prove and he clearly has ambitions to play in the top club.
