Highly visible for several weeks now, attacking midfielder Nabil Fekir (28 years old, 8 games and 1 goal in La Liga this season) has established himself as the key player at Real Betis Sevilla. Back at his best, the French international shines with the Verdiblancos and is very happy.

"I think this is my best version. I always try to help the team, to score and to give goals. But at the moment everything is going very well for me. (...) I see that the public loves me, that makes me very happy and I want to return to the field. I'm very happy here", former Lyon captain told Betis TV.

On a deal with the Andalusians until June 2023, Fekir took the opportunity to respond to rumors about his future, including recent interest from Newcastle: "You never know in football, but the truth is that today, I do not think about the other offers. It is normal that one starts talking about extension, because I only have one season left. year and a half of contract. We will discuss and we will see".
