Arsenal confident of getting at least one big deal over the line soon

The Athletic claims that Arsenal is confident of landing at least one of Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey.

Both midfielders have been top transfer targets for the Gunners in this transfer window as Mikel Arteta’s side look to get stronger ahead of the close of the current transfer window.

Arsenal has opened talks with the current clubs of both players, but they haven’t had an acceptable bid for either player.

The Gunners have been told that they will have to pay the 50m euros release clause on Partey’s contract before they will be able to sign him.

They have also had a 35m euros offer for Aouar rejected by Lyon, but they are not giving up on the chase of either player yet.

Edu is reportedly in talks with his compatriot at Lyon, Juninho as the Gunners look to table another improved bid.

The report adds that Lyon is more likely to agree to instalment payments of Aouar’s transfer fee than Atletico will be for Partey.

Arteta has had the 22-year-old Frenchman on his radar since he was the assistant manager of Manchester City and he might finally get his man.

  1. We need a Defensive Midfielder to sit in front and protect the defence;

    All cant do that job, If we only sign Aouer then we will still struggle in the middle of the park I am telling you. We need rock of some sort bought for there. AMN is there but he will not be trusted in the middle I dont think anyway.

    Window closes soon, Aouer comes now then what? We sell 3 players or so and that’s us finished. Would be really disappointed if we dont sign CDM.

  2. Edu,Arsenal board and owners are jokers. Arteta, should seriously consider moving to another club, where he would respected and given the support he deserves to succeed. If he doesn’t get their backing, to get the players he needs to strengthen the midfield in this transfer window, l advise him to leave Arsenal in it’s mess. Frustrating. Only 5 days before deadline, still wasting time to get important deals done. Lyon have reduced their asking price for Aouar and have stated that they will not accept less than 40m pounds for him. So,what is the hold up. Get this deal done asap or Arteta should leave.

    1. Thank you Wayne from Mars who doesn’t know that we have the covid 19 pandemic which has destabilised literally everything all over the world. You have exposed not only your ignorance but also your insensivity! I hope no one gets carried away by your short-sightedness.
