Lyon's Nabil Fekir has scored the best goal you'll see all day - with his weaker foot

The 24-year-old is making sure he grabs the spotlight now that Alex Lacazette has moved to Arsenal.

NABIL FEKIR HAS been a standout for Lyon over the last few seasons and a real hometown hero.

The 24-year-old had a superb 2014/2015 campaign and was hitting peak form just at the right time to be included in Didier Deschamps Euro 2016 squad but suffered a knee ligament injury while on international duty and missed the rest of the season.

Still, he picked up where he left off on his return as Lyon made it through to the semi-finals of the Europa League in 2017.

And with star attacker Alexandre Lacazette leaving to join Arsenal in the summer, it’s allowed Fekir to grab the spotlight a bit more.

He scored twice on the opening day of the season as Lyon put four past Strasbourg while he racked up an assist in a 2-1 away win at Rennes.

And today, he certainly assured himself of the headlines as he conjured a moment of absolute genius (with his weaker right foot) in a 3-3 draw against Bordeaux.

Don’t be surprised if Fekir is heavily linked with a Premier League move should his form for Lyon continue for the rest of the season.
