Arsenal are reportedly prepared to retain their long-term interest in Lyon forward Nabil Fekir when the season comes to a close.

The France international was heavily linked with both Arsenal and Barcelona in January but Lyon were not keen in a mid-season sale.

However, the Gunners are now seemingly keen to revive their interest and according to Football365, they could compete with AC Milan for his services this summer.

The north London club were quoted a hefty £60m for Fekir during the winter transfer window but Lyon are understood to have since lowered their asking price to around £35m.

Despite this, any deal may be dependent on Arsenal winning the Europa League title with Fekir having the preference of joining a Champions League-based club in the summer.

Fekir has contributed directly to 30 goals for Lyon in just 37 appearances this term and the club are currently in a close fight with AS Monaco and Marseille for a top-three spot which assures them of Champions League qualification.
