Arsenal’s interest in Houssem Aouar is well-documented, and the Frenchman is still on their radar.
Surprisingly, he is still playing for Lyon, but this might be his last season at the Ligue 1 club.
The midfielder is a prominent member of their team, but even they know he should play for a top club at some point in his career.
That could happen after this season, but it might not be at Arsenal as he has interest from another big club.
Todofichajes says Real Madrid has maintained their interest in his signature as well and they will look to sign him soon.
The midfielder also favours a move to Los Blancos, and he is prepared to ignore the interest from Arsenal to make the move to Madrid.
Just Arsenal Opinion
We should have signed Aouar when we had the chance to do so, but in Martin Odegaard, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Thomas Partey we haven’t done badly in terms of alternatives.
Adding him to the current group of midfielders will make our squad more competitive. Hopefully, we can still convince him to join.
If Madrid decides against pursuing their interest or hesitates, we should be in a position to land him.
