Arsenal haven’t tabled a bid for Ligue 1 target, his Sporting Director confirms

Lyon Sporting Director, Juninho has revealed that the French side is yet to receive an offer from the Gunners for Houssem Aouar.

Arsenal is one of several top teams that have been linked with a move for the young Frenchman.

The Gunners want a midfielder and Aouar, as well as Thomas Partey, are the top targets that have been linked with a move to the Emirates.

There have been reports that Arsenal has tabled a bid which involved using Matteo Guendouzi as a sweetener to land the impressive midfielder.

The French side turned that down because they don’t like the profile of Guendouzi.

They have set an asking price of £55m for the signing of the 22-year-old and Juninho has now confirmed that they haven’t received a transfer offer from Arsenal or any of his other suitors.

“We have not received anything for Houssem, we have not received anything for Memphis,” said Juninho via The Independent as he addressed the future of his club’s two wanted stars.

Arsenal has had a busy transfer window. They have just secured the future of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang which is a major boost to their top-four hopes.

If they can sign a top midfielder, they might even challenge for the Premier League title.

    I’m a bit confused here!!

    If they haven’t received an offer from our club, how have they refused one involving Guendouzi?

    It’s probably me being thick again, but can someone explain please?
    Apologies in advance!!!

      That’s Good old twitter for you Ken ,the ones who pretend that They are in the clubs boardroom when the offers go in .

    2. Eddie says:

      Ken it was never an offer, I’ve said it before, even Juninho came outside to say it was just a discussion between himself and Edu.
      That 35M + Douzi was never an offer.
      Websites and people just made shit up and said it was an offer that was rejected

          Maybe they wanted Ozil to sell them their shirts and we refused cause we desperately need that one goal this season! And to my next question, why should we bring Aour to the Emirates when we have the mighty Ozil?Did he not give us some goals and 19 assists some 5 seasons ago?How can Mikel and Edu forget that?Serious questions need serious answers.

    I think, there has been no official bid yet except for the call Edu gave to Juninho

    I think this is an old news report of a few days ago.

    Rumors spreading now that a bid of 36.5m pounds is being prepared to be submitted to Lyon soon, which is still about 13.5m pounds short of Lyon’s 55m pounds asking price.
    Let’s hope and pray that it is accepted, and then watch and see.

    19 days to go and we are yet to see the sales of Torreira, Sokratis, Kolasinac, Elneny to boost funds for Partey and Aouar.
    Lord please let the sales of unwanted players begin.

      Exactly, SJ, time is running out!! Much needs to be done!!

    @S.J, If the rumours are true, let us hope Lyon accept the offer. Aouar is an essential cog inthe midfield to break down teams sitting deep to defend. As far as sale of Arsenal players are concerned, I agree time is running out and unless MA and Edu have a plan B, the sale of these players should be expedited.

    Arsenal fc love doing things the hard way, you can’t tell me that a transfer window spanding for a month plus now we can’t still get a single player out, this is unacceptable, spurs just got regullion and bale and we there recycling the same news every week.

    This football club is the worse run football club in the wold. Maybe smaller teams like Aston villa haven’t been hit by the covid19 crisis.
