Long-term Arsenal target hopes they return to sign him

Houssem Aouar has been a long-term target of Arsenal as the Gunners seek to bolster their squad.

The French midfielder came very close to moving to the Emirates around 2020, but the deal never got off the ground, and he remained in France.

Lyon had him on a long-term contract at the time and couldn’t agree to a fee with Arsenal.

The midfielder has now entered the last year of his deal, and they are desperate to offload him.

However, L’Equipe says there is a shortage of takers for a player once linked to Manchester City and Real Madrid.

The only club looking to add him to their squad now is Real Betis, but he is reluctant to join the Spanish club.

The report says he is stalling on accepting their offer because he wants to move to the Premier League.

He now hopes Arsenal, or any other suitor from England, will make a move for him.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Aouar was one of the finest midfielders in Europe when we wanted to sign him around 2020.

However, he missed that chance, and we have moved on to other players.

A move for him now is unlikely because we have added players with a similar profile to our squad already.

  1. By the time we wanted to sign him he showed little to push through a move or if he wanted to join arsenal, he even went ahead and said he was happy at lyon. What has changed? He should sign a new contract and pull up his socks because after the closure of the window he acted unwilling to play for lyon and his game took a drastic low turn that’s why he is neither being wanted or playing for France.

  2. We should never think of going back for this piece of sh*t. He should better go to Real Betis cos no serious or ambitious club will come for him. I would rather we don’t sign any central midfielder at all rather than sign this gold-digging mercenary

  3. Reporter – “So… Mr. Aouar… You turned a couple approaches from Arsenal in the last couple years ago, haven’t you?”
    Aouar – “Yes… I have.”
    Reporter – “Hmmm… Bit of a daft f**king thing to do… Wasn’t it?”
    Aura – ………. 8-((…

  4. Seems like we dodged a bullet here. If we had paid that reported £50-£60 million then we would have had another Pepe on our hands.
