Barcelona have reportedly not yet made an approach for Mesut Ozil, while Arsenal are said to have already made an offer for Lyon's Nabil Fekir.

Any winter move for Fekir may end in failure, as Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has said the 24-year-old will remain with the club for the rest of the season and potentially beyond, per SFR Sport (h/t Metro).

The France global is also the most improved improved player in Europe's big leagues this season, per Martin Laurence at the Guardian.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas believes Didier Deschamps should bring Karim Benzema back into the worldwide setup as the Real Madrid striker would bring a new dimension to the France team.

Barcelona have been scouring Europe to identify a suitable candidate and a number of players are being extensively scouted for the January transfer window. He is under contract [until 2020] and likes playing for Lyon very much. He's enjoying a period of success football-wise, but also in terms of management as he's captain of a Lyon that has been able to get itself back on track, and it's also thanks to him.

"Of course, he has a very good chance of being [at] Lyonnais".
