Arsenal will beat two giants if they finally secure their summer target

Arsenal has had a breakthrough in their bid to sign Houssem Aouar after he agreed to join the Gunners this summer, according to Telefoot.

If that is true, the Gunners will have beaten off competition from Juventus and Barcelona to land the 22-year-old.

The midfielder has been a target of the Gunners for some time now and Mikel Arteta had been keen to land him before the transfer window shuts.

He rose to prominence last season after helping Olympique Lyon to reach the semi-final of the Champions League.

One of the teams that they eliminated before reaching that far was Juventus and his performances in the games against the Old Lady caught their attention.

Barcelona has also considered a move for him as he continues to develop as one of the finest midfielders in the game.

The Catalans are currently overhauling their team as part of a rebuilding process under their new manager, Ronald Koeman.

Arsenal has, however, remained the suitor with the strongest interest in the midfielder, and both European giants haven’t made an offer yet even though he favours joining them, according to Telefoot.

Arsenal has had a fine transfer window and adding the Frenchman to their team will make this transfer window even more colourful.

    We are always last to do any transfer business we will never change until we get rid of the greedy Yank

    We haven’t SECURED his signing yet, only agreed terms with him, his club are still playing hardball about transfer fee.

    Quicker Torreira gets done the better. It’s all about getting players out as fast as we can. I doubt we’ll end up paying the full price Lyon want for Houssem since we are the only bidders. But we def have to go above 35mill.

    Hopefully the Lyon president will
    stop running his trap about
    Arsenals finances and negotiate
    a suitable deal for all parties.
    £40M IMWO is a fair price for the
    talented Frenchmen. Get it done
    in time for next weekends fixture.

    As far as the TP soap opera is
    concerned I think it’s way past
    time for MA and Edu to tell AM
    to shove it where the sun don’t
    shine and concentrate on
    Soumare from Lille in the final
    week of the window. The French
    club have been transparent about
    there willingness to sell the young
    midfielder and one would think
    that another deal between the
    two sides could be hatched out
    rather quickly. Perhaps LT, ME, or
    MG could be used in the deal
    as a sweetner and provide the
    French club cover @ that position.

    If he hits the ground running in
    the EPL like his former teammate
    Soumare might be the better
    investment anyway.

    Just some food 4 thought.
