Four players Arsenal can use in their bid to sign Aouar

Arsenal has returned to sign Houssem Aouar after a season in which they signed Thomas Partey.

They were keen to sign the Frenchman before the end of the last summer transfer window.

They failed to reach an agreement with Lyon and the midfielder remained with the French club for another season, while Arsenal landed Partey from Atletico Madrid.

He looks set to make the move to the Emirates finally as Arsenal has reportedly reopened talks over signing him.

The Gunners will hope to close out the signing soon considering that he has other suitors around Europe.

This means they would use every means possible and if money isn’t enough they could add a player as a makeweight in their offer.

The Express has named four players whom they could use to make the transfer happen.

Firstly, the report says Arsenal could send Reiss Nelson to the French club, a move that would help him play regularly as was the case when he was on loan at Hoffenheim before now.

Secondly, they could send Willian to the French club as the Brazilian has been underwhelming at the Emirates so far.

Thirdly, the Gunners could offer them Joe Willock who can serve as a direct replacement for the outgoing Frenchman.

As they struggle to agree on the transfer of Granit Xhaka with AS Roma, the report adds that they could use the Swiss midfielder as a makeweight in the move as well.

    from the news
    lyon just ask max 25M for aouar
    dont act like arsenal is midtable poor club
    just pay full upfront

    Wasn’t this the guy whose family admitted he’d just use Arsenal as a stepping stone to join a real big club?

      He should be great for that and work hard for arsenal un the process…so if we can bought him for 25mm and then sell him in two years for 60mm+ yo Madrid, then that would be awesome to me

      this is such a poor transfer. had attitude problems just last season and poor form. really hope this is not true about us bidding for a player that doesnt even want to truly be at the club.

        First of all the whole Lyon team had a really bad start secondly he caught covid that might explain some of his loss of form and at his age the most difficult thing is to be consistent but it comes with experience/age and his poor attitude I’m assuming that you are referring to the only incident when he showed his unhappiness at not starting big deal and lastly he never said he didn’t want to play for us but that he wanted to play for one of the top 3/ 4 clubs in the world what’s wrong with that?what if we pay 20/25M for him and he plays well for us(4/5 seasons) he’ll be 27 years old and we then sell him for 50/60M?still hood business all-around no?

          How often do we buy low and sell high? 🤣 we usually do it the other way around!

          1. Siamois says:

            True that!

        2. VasC says:

          If the player is ambitious to play for a top 3 / 4 clubs in the world, why would he move to Arsenal, who are not even the top 3+4 club in their own league, 8th for the past two seasons?

          We’ve to sign good players this season no matter what

  3. Moses says:

    I think it high time, we start getting this deals out of the pipeline. Our signing take too long for crying out loud.

  4. gunnerforlife says:

    He is certainly a good player in the CAM mould, but if he has attitude problems, than we have to be careful. Sending out Willock does not make sense, he scored so consistently for Newcastle, MA only needs to use him properly to get the best out of him, he is one of our bright prospects.

    You don’t need to sell zhaka to anyone is a good player he play very well at ongoing tournament
