2020 Community Shield winners, Arsenal, seem to have an eye for Lyon Midfielder Houssem Aouar, in a 36 million pounds deal.
Aouar, who impressed for Lyon last season as they reached the semi-finals of the Champions League are likely admirers for the midfielder. He was particularly impressive in the Champions League, with his creative instincts clear for all to see as he clocked up six assists and scored once from eight matches.
And it’s evident why Arsenal want him. The Gunners have seen Mesut Ozil tumble down Arteta’s pecking order and would love to sign the Lyon star as his replacement to compound an impressive transfer market.
Aouar’s fine performances haven’t just roused the interest of Arteta. Pep Guardiola and Andrea Pirlo are both admirers, too.
Behind the scenes, Arsenal are readying a bid. One they hope will be successful and will result in the France international making a sensational move to north London.
