Are Arsenal set to sign Aouar cheaply on deadline day?

Arsenal has been tipped to still strengthen their squad with the addition of their long-term midfield target, Houssem Aouar before this transfer window closes.

The Frenchman has been linked with a move to the club since Mikel Arteta became their manager.

They came close to signing him last summer, but they failed to reach an agreement with Lyon to land him.

He remained with them for one more season and Football London claims they are now desperate to sell him in this transfer window.

This is because he will enter the last year of his current deal at the end of this season.

The report claims that he is one of the players that Arsenal can still sign before this window closes.

It further says Lyon is so keen to sell that they have made it easy for him to move by making him available for a loan to buy agreement.

Arsenal has already added Albert Sambi Lokonga and Martin Odegaard to their midfield, but the Gunners would need more depth in that department because of injuries and suspension.

Aouar has become a mainstay in the Lyon team and has also earned a call up to the France senior national team.

He would be a fine addition to the current Arsenal squad.

    If Arteta does not sign Houssem Aouar then he is deliberately sabotaging Arsenal. If he treats Arsenal like he treated William Saliba he is deliberately sabotaging the club he is working for. Arteta is a wrongun.

    1. Skills1000 says:

      @ Sean, Arsenal has played 3 games. Yet A Triangle has more points that Arsenal.

      It is a shame.

          We can sign the whole world fam, doesn’t matter.
          WE CANNOT DEFEND!!!
          So we’ll always concede. We aren’t scoring either so we’ll most likely always lose.

          1. Admin Pat says:

            Can I see the stats on that statement please?

    2. PJ-SA says:

      “I don’t understand how people are defending Arteta like he’s a club legend or something. Frank Lampard was shown the door the minute they understood he’s not the man to take them forward. What’s holding us back to sack Arteta ? The Arsenal job isn’t for him, let us move on.”

      Tweet I just saw, well said.

    3. Teewabs says:

      My same thoughts and words exactly, get Aoure on the cheap immediately plus a right of either Trippier or a celik. One additional SS will complete the magic…

      1. samuel banks says:

        Tripper is in the twilight years, why would he move to a so called “project” like arsenal that he will probably never see the success of.

        He will be only looking for a CL club, will be hugely shocked if they pull it off.

        We will only sign older players with little to no ambition to move the club forward, otherwise if they did they would avoid arsenal like the plague.

    4. Neil Kozenevski says:

      Aouar, Bissouma, Onuachu and Mazraoui and Onana for deadline day! And Conte! Bellerin, Xhaka, Holding, Chambers, Cedric, Mari, Leno, Willian and Arteta out. Bring back Saliba and Guendouzi!

      1. Mark says:

        How much is on your bank account? Are you providing the money to buy these players?

        Are you going to hold a gun to someone’s head and force them to buy these arsenal players that you want sold?
        “Guendouzi”.. So you have no issues with a repeatedly disruptive individual at our club?..

        1. The-Real-Vieira-Lynn-4ever says:

          One word to your holier than thou Guendo assessment Mark…XHAKA

      2. John Ibrahim says:

        50 men squad…

        its better you stick to fifa21…

        you can sign Mbappe for 300m ..release him on free transfer and sign him again for 350m

        1. Matt says:

          Hilarious. I love this.

      3. dgr8xt says:

        You can’t achieve this on deadline day, even in FIFA and Football Manager

    5. Driksy says:

      Arteta was a big mistake for us, should’ve kept Wenger until a good replacement was done for a highly experienced manager. Mediocre signings too have now made us into a mid table team for many years to come now…

      1. Baba kwalli says:

        Wenger is better than both Emery and Ateta, but fans looks for his head. We play excellent football under him, score more goals and have an eye in recruiting talented players that he mould into excellent footballers. The truth is that the emergence of new Chelsea, & Man city owners that strengthen their teams makes it more difficult for Wenger to win more tropies. But dispite that he qualifies us to Champions league every year with the exception of his last one year in charge when more pressure was mounted on him.
        So now with mediocre signing of players, it will take the best coach with Wenger experience to bring back the club to it’s status quo. People like Edu & M.A will leave the club, players like ballerin, Xhaka, kolasinac will also leave they Will not move the club forward.
        Spending more than any EPL club this season and achieving nothing in our last 3 games show s that the owners are ready to spend but Edu & Ateta don’t know what they are doing.

  2. Alao Oluwatosin says:

    @ PJ-SA, you have spoken well, let be honest with ourselves, Arteta is not the right man to take Arsenal FC forward, Arteta is too small for for the job with little or no experience.
    I don’t know if Ancelotti will accept the job or Zidane, but if obe of the two should, we will definitely see how the boys will turn up.

  3. Mike Bassey says:

    Arsenal is a big team and need not have a baby coach or manager to run the affairs of our darling team, the present performances of the team is making us sick and never to watch Arsenal games again, so that you don’t have heart beat or high BP. May the present board do something before it gets out of hand. Always a gunner.

  4. Mike Dunne says:

    I do not know quite what is happening at Arsenal at the moment or who is to blame. Firstly money seems to be available so why let a really good goalkeeper go? Then you spend money on someone who has been relegated twice. If money is available why are we continually taking Chelsea cast offs. We need a commanding centre half. If someone has fallen out with Bellerin we need a full back. Tierney is good but Kolasinac? Chambers? What happened Re Auba he gets a massive pay rise and then canโ€™t play? Something is wrong with the role he is asked to perform or he is not receiving the correct service. We are not getting the best from Xhaka he played really well for Switzerland why canโ€™t we get him to play like that for us

    1. Neil Kozenevski says:

      It still really hurts everytime i think about it- we sold Martinez and kept Leno! Selling Willock was also a dickmove! As was giving new contract to Xhaka. He could have been actually good in Italy. He is disater for us! And Arteta is breaking all the records. He has us firmly on relegation course! But he needs time to achieve that! Let us not give him that pleasure!

  5. Ayodeji Ahmed says:

    Both Arteta and Edu are immature for this job, since Martinez was sold our club has been on a downward trend,how do you justify the inclusion of kolasinac in a team and cast of Saliba,till Arteta is gone arsenal may remain point less after 6matches , we may not beat bunley and get reached by Spurs.

    1. Yossarian says:

      I think the downward trend started a long time before Martinez was sold!

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        ๐Ÿ‘

  6. Yossarian says:

    Another good midfielder is definitely needed so let’s hope for some deadline-day good news ๐Ÿคž

  7. Alex says:

    Get Auor, Bissouma and Trippier we should be ready after three lost to go and dominate again. Be positive, be real fans. Remember when Arsene wenger first arrived ? Remember Sir Alex was a game from the sack at Manchester!! Look at what they did for their clubs. Arteta will come good and we will get our smiles back again.

  8. Grandad says:

    In ESR and Odegaard we already have two attacking midfielders so why would we sign a third when what we need is a high class defensive midfielder to protect our brittle centre backs..We have not had a decent D M for over a decade and because of this we are side open to counter attacks.Unless this position is filled with a quality operator like they have at Man City, Liverpool and Chelsea we are destined for mid table mediocrity.

    1. Ausgooner says:

      ESR is not an attacking midfielder, and after his display on Saturday he should be dropped. He lost the ball in midfield in the second half and simply walked away, never tried to get it back, bloody disgrace.

      1. Timothy says:

        Yes. Agreed to that. If you watch Smith Rowe carefully you will realised he is just a good squad player, nothing more. We need better players than him.

  9. Benedict PK Saywon, I says:

    So ยฃ20m is still too much for a club of Arsenal Class for serious minded player like Houssam Aouar? What a shame to Gasper Edu!

  10. AFCMickey says:

    If they don’t sign Aouar this cheaply as a long-term replacement for Xhaka then they should be sacked for damaging the Club’s interests… They were willing to pay much more last season, was that just a colossal waste of time/effort??; Get him in!

  11. Harry Gabriel says:

    Arteta and Edu are busy selling away our good players, how do they intend to win when our best like that of Mesut Ozil, Emiliano Martinez, Joe Willock etc. have all been sold out living fringe players to play a team like Arsenal. I still believe more losses are coming bcos it’s isn’t over yet. Arteta and Edu should be sacked with immediate effect and be replaced immediately with Antonio Conte and Marc Overmars

    1. R says:

      Willock and Ozil our best? What are you smoking mate?

  12. Harry Gabriel says:

    Arsenal pls wake up from ur slumber. Frank Lampard a legend in Chelsea FC, after his time as a player he was handed a managerial work in the same club but when he couldn’t deliver, he was shown the exit door. Arteta was never an Arsenal legend but just a player after which he was handed a managerial Job like Frankie where he took over from Unai Emery and landed us in Eighth position. We all claimed that it wasn’t his full season but his full season in charge he struggled to even maintain the Eighth position. Now just the beginning of his third season he has already lost three matches, the worst of them all is that of Brentford. Now Arteta have conceded Nine goals without any consolation goal for the fans living us at the bottom of the table. Emery was just a season and was sacked. Freddric Ljumberg was just months and was shown the door. My question is, What is Arteta still doing in Arsenal? Is it until he has lead us fully to relegation and we begin to have problem of getting a new coach to bring us out of relegation just as we are finding it difficult to sign top quality players bcos no European football for a team like Arsenal? Arsenal pls wake up it’s morning already

  13. Yusuf says:

    Dont know why and what reason you are defending arteta for,
    If we are talking about the truth arsenal problem comes from the intire heirarchy.
    The kreonkes.
    The board and arteta.
    They must go all as they seem a group made of to hurt the club

  14. Jack says:

    Honestly, Emery and Milinstat did better in transfer recruitment.

    1. Ozziegunner says:

      Agree on Mislantat; however Emery had no say in transfers, which was a problem.

  15. gunnerforlife says:

    Aouar must be signed on deadline day. We require quality in the middle of the pitch. Bissouma is a must to add steel to the midfield. Fingers crossed, these 2 signings must be done along with a RB.

  16. Ozziegunner says:

    Agree with G4l, Houssem Aouar, now that Marcel Sabitzer is going to Bayern Munchen, plus one of Yves Bissouma or Bruno Guimaraes (package deal with Lyon).
    By the way Renato Sanchez is going to Wolverhampton Wanderers on a loan with option to buy.
