Tottenham Hotspur have received a huge boost in their pursuit of Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir as the flamboyant midfielder has hinted at a possible exit from the French giants in the near future.
Nabil Fekir is one of the most highly rated players in French football at the moment and he is already making a huge impact this season, with 11 goals in all competitions.
As a result of such good form, there is a high level interest in the playmaker and Premier League title contenders Tottenham Hotspur are one of the teams currently chasing the 24-year-old.
While Fekir has been linked with an exit from Lyon for several years now, he has remained loyal to his current team but recently, the player has gone on to speak about his desires to play in other countries such as Spain and England.
Speaking with Le Parisian, Fekir said, “When you are from Lyon, the only French club that you are interested in is Lyon,
“There is nothing that tempts you more than that – Spain and England. Those are the two most attractive leagues, where they love football. From a technical point of view, it is neat. It is the best!
“In Spain, even the smaller teams are not scared of playing. I love the game, the beautiful game.
“The teams that are uniquely looking to be involved in and win duels do not interest me. That is not football. Aside from that, everyone has their preferred style.”
A move to Tottenham for Fekir has been touted in recent weeks as it is believed that Mauricio Pochettino is looking for an extra cover in the attacking positions and the Argentine has identified the Lyon star to be the ideal player to fulfill the role. As a result, these quotes will definitely serve as a boost in Spurs pursuit of the Frenchman.
