Fabrizio Romano claims that Arsenal are solely concentrated on the singing of Takehiro Tomiyasu, and are not in for a deal to sign Houssem Aouar.
The midfielder has been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates in recent transfer windows, with extremely strong reports last summer that a deal could be completed, but we opted to splash out on Thomas Partey’s arrival instead.
This summer it was claimed that both Tottenham and us were interested in a deal, but Fabrizio Romano insists that we have no interest in such a deal before today’s 11PM deadline, and that we are solely focused on completing the deal to bring Tomiyasu to the club.

I can’t lie, I’m not happy with our midfield options going into the new season, and haven’t seen enough of Albert Sambi Lokonga to believe he is ready to stake a claim for a regular first-team role, and while I like Elneny’s simple approach, we know it is going to be another long season of Granit Xhaka mistakes.
