Real Betis vice-president José Miguel López Catalán spoke to the media with the closure of the transfer window to offer an overview of the current squad adding that the club had invested 110 million euro in signings in the current calendar year with a place in European competition the minimum objective for the Andalusian side. 

Catalán was under no illusion that the Fekir was one of the gala signings in the recent market: "Last year Betis were renowned for a solid midfield, we've retained the bulk of these players with Fekir taking Lo Celso's place and I'd say the French player is at the same level or even better than the Argentine who can offer plenty in attack".
