Campbell offers to drive Arsenal target to the Emirates after his transfer fee change

Kevin Campbell has offered to drive Houssem Aouar to the Emirates if they agree to sign him after his reduced transfer fee was revealed.

The Frenchman is a long-term target for Arsenal with the Gunners hoping to complete a move for him in this transfer window.

They have been in a competition with the likes of Tottenham in their bid to sign him this summer and they would be boosted by the latest update on his transfer.

Get French Football News reported earlier in the month that Lyon is keen to sell him to raise funds after they failed to qualify for the Champions League last season.

The report says they would accept as little as £17million for his signature and former Arsenal man, Campbell believes signing him for that price would be a major steal for the Gunners.

He says they wanted £50million for him last summer, but covid has forced them to reduce his value now and Arsenal has to sign him.

He told Football Insider: “Listen, for that price I will drive over and pick him up myself.

“He was valued at £50million last summer so £17million? You are laughing.

“This is Covid for you. Their chairman wanted to keep him and was playing a game with Arsenal. Now, all of a sudden he has had to drop his price tag. Lyon, like a lot of French clubs, are struggling.

“I still think Aouar is a top player. He is a dynamic midfielder who I would bring in.

“There are going to be exits at Arsenal so we need quality options in the midfield. He certainly fits the bill.”

  1. Aouar will be an excellent addition to the squad and a must. Arsenal must go for him at any cost. Its now or never before another club signs him.

  2. THIS time I agree with CAMPBELL. I often agree with what he wishes but reason that his wishes are unrealistic, whereas I remain one of lifes realists where Scrooge Kroenkes “financial backing” of our club is concerned.

    When we are said to be asking £17 mill PLUS for the likes of Xhaka and even more for near useless Bellerin, then £17 mill for a quality player like Aouar is surely a steal.

    1. price will drop even further with the covid situation getting worse…

      we might even get him for 10 or 12m

      however fans would rather big money be spent on players than helping the poor and needy

      1. John, Based on your final thought perhaps we should close down all paid entertainers and sports people eveywhere and give ALL the money not spent to far more deserving and underprivileged folk.
        But then we come up against human nature, which means your wish will never happen. A large part of me shares your hopeless wish TBH, even though I am as guilty of selfish pleasure in spending my money as most humans.

  3. If Aouar is really a top quality player available for our valuation of Xhaka, any top team playing in Europe this season must have wrapped up the deal by now. This is the same stick with which people beat down Saliba’s readiness and maturity to play for us in EPL this season while being shunted out on loan to OM.

  4. What are we waiting he should be in Arsenal colours,we take long and we we must sign.if you are getting Madison and Aouar you will be in title race.Invest much to this two and it will payback
