On the one year anniversary of their World Cup triumph, ESPN FC’s Julien Laurens delves into the chances this France side will win more silverware.

France international forward Nabil Fekir has completed a move to Real Betis from Lyon, the clubs announced on Monday.

The contract runs through 2023, with the Lyon saying the deal is worth €19.75 million, plus €10 million in incentives and includes a potential 20 percent sell-on bonus.

A product of the French club’s academy, Nabil played nearly 200 professional matches, scoring 69 goals and registering 41 assists. He became club captain in 2017 before winning the World Cup with France in 2018.

Fekir, 26, had been heavily linked to a move to Liverpool last summer, but that transfer fell through due to a knee injury concern.

Fekir’s arrival to Seville could reinforce Betis’ attacking options as Giovani Lo Celso could soon be making a reported move to Tottenham Hotspur.

Fekir’s younger brother, Yassin, was also sold from Lyon to Betis, with a 50 percent sell-on clause added. 

Betis finished tenth in La Liga standings last season.
