Arsenal have been linked with the move for the Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar this summer.
The Londoners have already failed with a bid to sign the player and they are expected to come forward with an improved offer now.
It will be interesting to see if they can agree on a deal with the French side before the transfer window closes.
The 22 year old midfielder is a world class talent and he could prove to be a sensational signing for Arsenal this season.
He will add creativity, flair and vision to Arteta’s midfield.
Arsenal need to add more quality to their midfield if they want to compete with the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea this season. The Gunners will be hoping to get back into the top four this season and someone like Aouar could help them massively.
Star striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has now given his thoughts on the potential arrival of Houssem Aouar from Lyon.
The Arsenal striker explained that the team needs players like the 22 year old and he would be open to welcoming the midfielder into the club if the transfer goes through.
He said: “Of course we are all for it, I won’t hide that. Even though he is a Lyon man!”.
It will be interesting to see if the two clubs can agree on a fee especially this late in the window.
Lyon will struggle to find a proper replacement in the remaining days and they might be tempted to hold on to the midfielder for another season.
