Arsenal tipped to make an offer for Ligue 1 target soon

Respected French journalist, Julien Laurens claims that Arsenal will make a move for Lyon star, Houssem Aouar soon.

The Frenchman is a reliable source for transfer information and he made the claim on an ESPN podcast.

Arsenal is in the middle of rebuilding their team, and they have made some interesting signings so far.

They have landed Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian. A midfielder is thought to be next on their agenda and Aouar is one of their top targets.

The 22-year-old became one of the most sought-after midfielders in Europe this summer after helping Lyon reach the last Champions League semi-final.

He has interest from a number of teams, but Arsenal is pushing to complete a move for him.

Laurens believes that Mikel Arteta’s side will imminently make a move for him, and he made that known in the podcast.

He also added to the claims that the Gunners are looking to sell Lucas Torreira and said when he is sold, they will turn to Aouar.

He said: “I believe Arsenal are preparing a deal, a bid for Aouar once they sell Lucas Torreira, probably to Torino, after Emi Martinez went to Villa. I think Arsenal will offer something to Lyon for Aouar & this one could happen.” [‘Gabs & Jul’ ESPN Podcast]

“I think the idea is to move to a 4-3-3 anyway at some time & then Aouar could play in midfield. Aouar can play in a 3-4-3, in the two in midfield, he runs a lot although he doesn’t have the defensive minded approach.” He added.

    MA and Edu need to convince the
    board and Kroenke that the money
    £45M (minimum) needs to be there
    NOW and will be paid back in time

  2. Arsenal will recruit a midfielder before the end of the transfer window but I don know who he will be.

    I just hope he is the kind of player we really need.

  3. I have confidence so far psg,man city aren’t after him, we just need to make sales and then we sign so simple. I believe we can hopefully Torreira to Torino, kolasinic to Leverkusen or Roma,westham and Athletico M for lacazette. We can make some money and get our two main targets

  4. Edu and arteta working their socks off to get Aouar in, they have to be fast befr he gets snapped up by one of the big teams around.. Sales of players has to be made to add more funds to get Aouar and probably partey, pretty convinced one of them is coming hopefully..
