Arsenal set to launch an improved bid for Ligue 1 star

The Mail claims that Arsenal is set to launch an improved bid for Houssem Aouar after seeing their initial offer for the midfielder rejected.

The Gunners offered 35m euros for the 22-year-old but it was deemed not good enough by the French side.

The Gunners are refusing to give up the chase and as the transfer window draws to a close, they have intensified their efforts to land him.

The report claims that the Gunners are prepared to offer 40m euros now and also add 10m euros in add-ons.

The midfielder is one of three midfield targets that Mikel Arteta has with the Spaniard also looking to sign Jorginho and Thomas Partey.

Jorginho has been tracked by Arteta since his time at Napoli and Partey only emerged as an Arsenal target when Arteta became the club’s manager in the last transfer window.

It seems that the Gunners will try to sign Aouar first before considering a move for the other two midfielders.

    Jorginho lacks pace and defensively he is weak.Why therefore would we consider buying him?Partey and Aouar are class acts, but given the apparent intransigence of the Madrid power men, it seems to me that we should, and maybe are, concentrating our efforts on the young attacking midfielder.The situation is made even more frustrating by our inability to move on the likes of Torreria,Socratis,Kolasinac and one of two defenders who are currently injured.In any event, Aouar would be a great acquisition and let’s hope we can get him.

      Please let forget about jinino and concentrate on Auore and party we those two in the club .

      1. Henry Varney says:

        Put alexis Sanchez and Giroud in as well

  2. Sue says:

    OT..Jamie Vardy’s having a party!

    1. Kev82 says:

      5 goals already but 4 were pens Sue and City looking very ordinary and bad defensively! I wouldn’t have taken Ake for free 😂 Guardiola a poor man’s Arteta 😉.. Bayern were hammered too 😀

      1. Kev82 says:

        4-1 now lol taxi for pep 😂😂

        1. Kev82 says:

          Ake the unwanted man 4-2 😂 the comeback is on 😉😆

          1. Sue says:

            Kev!! I can’t believe how many penalties have been given and we’re only the 3rd game in!! Reckon we’ll get one tomorrow??!!
            I never saw this scoreline coming 😳
            Absolutely stunned….

          2. Kev82 says:

            Sue had that been us we would have been slaughtered make no mistake but city and Chelsea will be excused and the pundits will continue with the Arsenal still look weak defensively! And for Souness to say none of our backline will get anywhere near Liverpool or city’s? Tierney would walk into city’s left back slot miles better than zinchenko and Mendy also Gabriel and Ederson is the most overrated keeper that I have ever seen.. makes a calamity every couple games and nobody says anything.. yeah some amount of pens Sue 😯 no chance we don’t get pens Sue 😂😂 Anfield? We’ll be lucky if we get a freekick! Please tell me Michael Oliver isn’t in charge? He gives everything to Liverpool 😩

          3. Sue says:

            No, it’s Craig Pawson. Ha, we’ll be lucky to even win the coin toss 😂😂
            Another crazy day in the PL… Wolves to go yet….🤪
            You’re right about Tesco 😝

          4. Kev82 says:

            Well anything is better than Oliver we might get lucky we might even win after full time like united ? 😆😆 Oh yeah are you watching it Sue ? 😀. Tesco is amazing he’s been an awesome signing like I always said he was Sue he’s so important to us now 😀

          5. Sue says:

            Yes I am.. had Wolves to win 😂
            Let’s hope he’s fit for tomorrow, Kev!!

            Hey sue by saying Tesco to mean Tierney 😋

          7. Sue says:

            Exactly that, Kenya 😜

    VARDY with the trick @ the Emirates

    Not impressed with Pep and the mighty Citizens

    1. ACE says:

      meant the Etihad

    2. Stephen says:

      He took out Fenandhinho and everything fell apart. What a “tactical genius”!

  4. Tom says:

    We or finished with our window no more signings only out goings

  5. Phenom says:

    I now believe MA was the brain behind city.
    We are lucky to have him as our manager.

  6. Mohsan says:

    You lot are so funny….MA was the brain behind City success not pep, pep “tactical genius”? Pep poor man’s Arteta etc etc this shows how much knowledge Arsenal fan have of football and shows how deluded we are. This is the first time in 686 games that his team has conceded 5 goals, he has won trophies in 3 different leagues, he has won more trophies then any other manager, he kind of revolutionised the game but Arsenal fans say nope, he is not that good. Same fans who are hyping MA so much will be the same ones who abuse and bring him down when some results will start to go against us. Seen it before not so much time ago when we started loosing some matches after lock down.

    1. Kev82 says:

      Man city lost 9 or 10 games last season and pep has spent an absolute fortune at city he has the luxury that many managers don’t have.. he is a quality manager no question but would he work his magic on a team with limited funds? That’s the big question, he managed that Barca team that you or me could have managed then went to Bayern failed to win the champions League, onto City with unlimited funds and they do not look like winning the champions League any time soon and make no mistake that’s what the city owners crave.

    West ham 2-0 Portugal Sue 😛 back to back defeats for Portugal 😉 I think he will Sue and if he’s not I hope Kolasinac doesn’t start, him playing at Anfield is a recipe for disaster 😩 let’s hope we have movement in the transfer window this week 😀

    1. Kev82 says:

      Make that 3 😯

    2. Sue says:

      Portugal 😄 3 now!! At least my nephew’s happy!! Who’d have thought it?!

      1. Kev82 says:

        I was about to say that Sue 😀 West ham are looking good minus that Newcastle game 😆 Antonio is a handful he must be a nightmare for defenders 😶 absolutely Sue I would have backed Portugal but West ham too good tonight 😀 you feeling nervous about tomorrow ? I would be more relaxed if I knew we are getting Aouar or Coutinho plus Partey 😀

        1. Kev82 says:

          Sue, Goldbridge reckons the reason United and City are off the pace is because only those 2 had no pre season! I must have slept through our pre season 😂😂 we basically played a community shield a few days after the fa cup final 😂😂

          1. Sue says:

            4-0 😱😱😱
            Cracks me up the excuses people come up with!!
            I wouldn’t say nervous as such, Kev.. not like previous years!! We’re not expected to win, are we?! Let’s go and have a go… and if it doesn’t happen tomorrow, we’ve always got Thursday 😉

          2. Kev82 says:

            West ham were on 🔥 tonight 👊 Moyes out Irvine in 😂😂 haha I know Sue it’s kinda scraping the bottom of the barrel for excuses.. City were hammered at home and united were played off the park by palace and Brighton but Goldbridge will say it’s because Jadon Sancho wasn’t playing 😂 he’s pinning his hopes on a 20 year old kid when they’re defence is shocking 😆 we haven’t got a prayer most people would say so we really have nothing to lose, we’re expected to be blown away within 5 minutes 😀 oh let’s beat them tomorrow and Thursday 😛

          3. Sue says:

            Lindelof used to be good, he’s awful now – the Maguire effect??! 🤣
            Bloody hell, 4-0!!
            This season has been mental!! Goal happy.. penalty happy.. handball [not so] happy..

  8. Kev82 says:

    Sue unai Emery doing well against Barca 🤪

    1. Kev82 says:

      And happy penalty after full time Sue 😛 they must be rubbing off on each other as both are useless.. Leicester got 80 mil for him ? Deal of the century… For Leicester lol. Now they are looking at Pau Torres they might think twice after this game 🤣 is Kolasinac leaving or what Sue I read something about him and his agent spoke with Leverkusen.. can we sell anyone, anyone at all ?

    Aubameyang: “Of course I am in favor of bringing Aouar [to Arsenal]. I will not hide it. He would add quality. Let’s see what happens. Even if he’s a OL player!”. ⚪️🔴 #AFC #transfers
