Arsenal makes an improved offer for one of their primary targets

Arsenal is pushing hard in their bid to sign Houssem Aouar this summer as the Frenchman continues to develop at Lyon.

Aouar has been a long-term target for the Gunners, who were close to signing him last summer.

They landed Thomas Partey instead but have remained interested in a move for him.

This summer presents Arsenal with another chance to bring him to London and it seems that they may take it.

Todofichajes says Arsenal had initially tabled an offer of around 30m euros for his signature, but the French club doesn’t consider it enough and the Gunners have now decided to table an improved offer.

The report says they have agreed on personal terms with the midfielder and just need to reach an agreement with Lyon.

Their improved offer would be 35m euros plus 5m euros more in added fees based on certain parameters being met.

The report says the Gunners remain confident the French club would accept their latest offer for his signature.

Arsenal looks set to end this transfer window with a decent midfield if they add Aouar.

This is because Granit Xhaka is staying and have signed Albert Sambi Lokonga who joins the likes of Thomas Partey and Mohamed Elneny at the club.

  1. Going for Aouar as the last option when Buendia was available and premier League proven it seems like a miss on him after wasting a lot of time and not getting 8deal done …just bring bring Madison this is what the board wanted just spend the British tax period 🤔

  2. I thought Buendia was our primary target 😀

    My biggest issue is the blatant lies we’ve been fed by MA and Edu. We were told they’ve identified exactly who they need to improve our squad. If they didn’t need buendia, then why bid? If we did need him then why didn’t we bid higher? No logic or truth.

    They just seem to be going after anything they can now.

  3. Well we took Ben White while sending Saliba and Mavropanos on loan, we took Lokonga while we were supposed to send Xhaka on a transfer, Elneny stays, Willock who did brilliantly at Newcastle goes, we have sent Martinez and kept Leno, Arteta knows what he is doing or he signs in random?

      1. Alex is right. I don’t read transfer news much again until I see *signed* . Its tiring honestly.

      2. Really can’t. I don’t see any clear idea or style of how we are playing. And yes even Willian hasn’t left and we are taking more and more midfielders. Last season i think Willian wasn’t playing in his supposed role, he was playing in very wide positions while he is better in more central positions, Auba too was playing completely out of the box and our full backs were crossing Lacazette for a header. Lacazette is supposed to leave too and he also isn’t going anywhere.

  4. Why is no one talking about a replacement for partey…………oh sorry i mean a Tieney-Tavares like replacement.

  5. Since Leicester don’t want to sell meddison we should forget about him and sign maddison.also try and sign guitraes since partey is becoming injury prone ,before the deadline day we sign max Aaron .

  6. Why are we still hoping to sign a player, who doesn’t want to play for us. That’s simply beyond me. It’s so much waste of time. It make me sick to read of Aouar , who doesn’t rate Arsenal. Hope this is just fake media stuff.

    1. I think you read it properly that we have done with personal terms but agreement is what’s blocking the transfer. Not that he doesn’t want to play for us

  7. Fellow Gunners, calm down. These media guys are trying 2 keep us believing they know what’s happening in our transfer plans, I swear they
    know nothing.

  8. So trenche 2 gossip begins. Today alone we are linked with:
    Asenio of RM; Maddison of Leicester; Aouar of Lyon; L Martinez of Inter; R Sanches of Lille; Hoppe of Schalke.
    Ahhh (or is it “mehhh!”). A day in the life of an Arsenal fan!

  9. Lyon should be a “one stop shop” for Arsenal this late in the transfer window.
    Lyon need money and have to sell. Arsenal need an ACM and a DM. Do a package deal Houssem Aouar €35 million and DM Bruno Guimaraes €30 million and job done for less than the money for James Maddison (£70 million). The funds left over will go a long way towards a backup goal keeper.

    1. That’s the most brilliant business that I never see Arsenal doing.They had to push foe these two deals before even thinking of Ben White.It’s cheap money and a double buy for the chemistry in the Lyon midfield

      1. Vie, much easier with Lyon than say package deal for White and Bissouma, because Brighton don’t need to sell players.
        Lyon won the Ligue 1 with Aouar and Guimaraes last season, yet their financial situation is dire and they must sell players.

  10. Only less bright fans read all these constant rumours and actually believe the club will be interested in all or most of them.

    They are almost entirely media nonsesne and have either no truth or a mere grain of truth at best.

    A moments thought- which admittedly is beyond many fans- would tell anyone wiith a normal brain that most of the rumours HAVE to be false. But still some fans fall for them. Sigh!

  11. MA and Edu may not be as serious as fans expected.They are kidding and when you look at what other clubs are doing,you just know arsenal won’t go far again this season.They identify good players and take 2 months talking about it until others buy.That show lack of seriousness.We know above all,MA primary need should be an attacking midfielder but is losing the battle here.Shame on AM and Edu.I wish they left the club.
