The France worldwide has scored 11 times in as many league games this term.
Arsenal's hopes of landing Lyon star Nabil Fekir appear to have waned considerably after the Ligue 1 club's president responded to talk of his sale.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes Didier Deschamps should bring Karim Benzema back into the global setup as the Real Madrid striker would bring a new dimension to the France team.
Given Fekir's quality, there is a certain inevitability that he will eventually join one of Europe's major clubs, assuming he does not get injured or suffer a drastic drop in form.
Sport points out that Aulas is a tough negotiator but he could be tempted to part ways with Fekir for the right-price as he did in the past when he sold Samuel Umtiti to Barcelona or Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal.
"And nothing says that he will leave at the end of the season either. He likes Lyon, has a contract and is the team captain", Aulas told SFR Sport.
"Of course, he has a very good chance of being at Lyon [next season too]".
However, the striker was not handed a recall as France booked their spot at the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation. But we will do everything to get Nabil to stay.
"I have never discussed it with him, but personally I think that Karim can still bring a lot to French football".
Sport claims that Barcelona have already made an approach to sound out his availability for January but the Catalans could face competition from both Arsenal and Real Madrid.
"Nabil would like to finish 1st or 2nd and play Champions League football with Lyon", the Frechman's father said in 2015. It's the only club that can enable him to progress, with Arsene Wenger.
And recently Fekir, who is captain of Lyon, admitted that England is one destination that appeals to him.
