Some Arsenal fans would want Nabil Fekir to replace Mesut Ozil at the north London club next season after a question was proposed to Gunners by AFTV Media’s Twitter page as to whether they would take the attacking midfield player.
This follows reports that Fekir has told Real Betis that he would like to stay at the Spanish club, potentially striking a blow to any hopes AFC had in signing him.
Nevertheless, some Gooners would like to see the French international at the Emirates as a replacement for Ozil. Comparing the two men’s stats in their respective domestic leagues this campaign, Fekir has scored more goals and provided more assists, whilst also completing more shots and dribbles per game, according to Whoscored.
The midfielder also averages 1.1 key passes, 0.5 crosses and one long ball per match, sustaining an average rating of 7.39, as per the website.
Who would you rather have in your team for next season?
These supporters responded to the tweet with their suggestions to replace Ozil with Fekir for next term:
Yes please but only if we sell Ozil

Yes. Yes. And YES! We need to sell Ozil though if we bring in Fekir. At the same time there is something about Jack Grealish that just fascinates me.

If ozil gone perhaps yes.
If not let willock/ ESR . We have much of talent. Just need to give them some times.
We need better DM and CB.
That’s the priority.
