Arsenal target Nabil Fekir “has the personal goal of being part of a top 10 club in Europe”.
Arsenal have identified Fekir as their ‘No. 1 summer target‘, with the Lyon forward valued at around £45million.
Fekir previously listed Arsenal among the most desirable clubs to join, and the Gunners are likely to follow up their interest when the transfer window opens.
The 24-year-old’s agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, says the situation will be dealt with in the right way.
“If at the end of the season, and this is not the case today, there was a decision to be made, then we would sit down with President Aulas and we would find the right solution,” Bernes told Le Dauphine Libere.
“Respecting first and foremost Lyon. At home, we do not leave like a savage or after a showdown. Nabil is in a big French club, if not the biggest.
“You know very well that at some point, we may be able to ask questions about a departure. The decision will be taken in all intelligence, as professionals, and especially in the interests of all parties.
“When you leave your training club, to whom we owe everything, we leave in good conditions. If we have to leave… Nabil has the personal goal of being part of a top 10 club in Europe.
“He has the potential. Without burning the steps. A career, it is built, little by little. We must not burn ourselves, be careful, because football, it goes quickly.”
