Khazri is a French born - Tunisian professional footballer who play for French Ligue 1 side Saint-Etienne.
Born to Tunisian parents, he was raised in France, Khazri has a dual citizenship of both France and Tunisia.
The Gunners striker was born in France but chose to represent Gabon at international level, following the footsteps of his father who played fot the black panthers despite living in France.
