Arsenal leading the race for long term Ligue 1 target

Arsenal is leading the race for Houssem Aouar as they finally close in on the French midfielder.

The Lyon man has been on the radar of the Gunners for a long time now.

They were close to signing him last summer, but they couldn’t agree with Lyon over his signature.

The French side remains open to selling him and it seems he could be on his way to London in this transfer window.

That is exactly what Todofichajes is reporting as they claim that he is now one of Arsenal’s priority signings.

The report says the Gunners have been in talks with Lyon for a while now and both clubs are very close to reaching an agreement.

Arsenal has already missed out on one of their fine targets after Aston Villa beat them to the signature Emi Buendia.

They are facing competition from top teams like Real Madrid and PSG for Aouar and they have to act fast to sign him, considering that they cannot offer him European football.

The lack of European football could see the Gunners struggle to sign players. However, the likes of Aouar might join if he is convinced that he would get regular playing time to continue his development.

    We have been linked with Houssem Aouar for a very long time now.Enough of the speculation.Just sign the guy

      Yes Lucky James. We need more quality signings. Attacking side of midfield. Get Auoar and Raheem Sterling. Bukayo Saka is a GEM. Arteta should never play him at left back again.He is a waste at left back. Arteta has to stop the useless experiments.

    Aouar is an essential signing but the question is whether he will come considering Arsenal is not in Europe next season. If he does not come, Perreira of WBA would be a good option, considering he has PL experience and played very well in a poor WBA side.

    Arsenal just like wasting time and it is really annoying. Amongst the traditional top 6 clubs, Arsenal is the most unserious and they’ve shown that alot of time. Imagine finishing 8th last season as a big club you claimed to be , refusing to sign any player and I think it been 3weeks nw since the opening of the transfer window. They like doing crazy business on the last day after the best among the players in other teams have been bought by the bigger clubs. AFC is a joke! but you can as well prove me wrong by bringing in superb players.
