Arsenal are reportedly assessing their options for the summer and as a result have cooled down their interest in Real Betis midfielder Nabil Fekir.


According to a report from The Athletic, Arsenal are currently searching for a creative midfield this summer, yet they are not considering Fekir as one of their primary targets.


The French midfielder was close to going to the Premier League when a move to Liverpool broke down right before joining Betis, and since then, he has attracted the interest of Arsenal and numerous other clubs.


Arsenal are determined to add a creative playmaker to their options in midfield, with the likes of Dani Ceballos and Martin Odegaard both returning to Real Madrid following their loan spells, and Fekir emerged as a possible target that could fit that mould.


Fekir played in 38 games in all competitions this season, registering five goals and six assists in the process, as Betis finished in a UEFA Conference League spot.


However, Arsenal have set their sights on securing a permanent deal for Odegaard, and are therefore not considering the 27-year-old as one of their main targets.


Despite this the Norwegian reportedly wants to stay at Real Madrid and settle down there, and so Arsenal might be forced into having to look at other options instead of him.


As of right now, Emile Smith Rowe remains as Arsenal's only playmaker in the squad, and if no options are available, they might have to make a move for Fekir this summer.
