Report – Long term Arsenal target is available at a discount

Lyon has lowered their asking price for Houssem Aouar as Arsenal closes in on signing the 22-year-old, according to ESPN.

The Gunners have been interested in signing him all summer as he continues to impress for the French side.

Despite making some fine signings in this transfer window and having made a fine start to the season, Arsenal’s summer transfer business isn’t done yet.

The Gunners want a midfielder. Thomas Partey, Aouar and Jorginho have all been named as their targets.

It seems like the Gunners are more interested in Aouar at the moment and they have already tabled 35m euros for his signature.

The report claims that the fee will not be enough to take him away from Lyon, but the Gunners are not far away from meeting his valuation.

Lyon wanted 60m euros for his signature initially, but the French side has now lowered their asking price to between 40m to 45m euros.

The Gunners are expected to return with an improved offer, they might also finish the sale of Lucas Torriera before coming back for the midfielder.

Signing Aouar will represent a major summer coup for the Gunners who will have to beat competition from the likes of Juve and Barcelona for his signature.

        Yesterday I quoted 40-45M + 10M add-ons, so what are you on? You can go through the past articles to go confirm.
        I’ve repeated countless times that it’s never 35 and won’t be 35 and Arsenal already agreed 40-45M + 10M add-ons.
        Now because I typed only 40M there’s am issue?

      Eddie,

      Still confident on TP or will the focus
      shift to B. Soumare from Lille?

      1. Eddie says:

        Very confident regarding TP.
        Arsenal will go all out, they’ve had agreement with Partey for months that they’ll activate the RC.
        KANU and Michael Essien helped made him decide to come over, mostly KANU really helped in convincing him.
        Athletico won’t do any deal outside the RC because they know we’ll activate it.
        Arsenal are only trying to play smart by cutting a new deal.
        We need to let players go because we can’t have players not playing the EPL her collecting huge salaries.
        Arsenal can have up to 20 non home grown players, but only 17 can be registered for the EPL.
        Let’s just get the Aouar deal done this coming week, it should be done before our league game by the weekend, move Sokratis, LT out and activate TP

          Eddie, I hope you are right, because if Arsenal misses these opportunities for firstly Partey and secondly Aouar, the Club will face the ramifications for seasons to come. These two players, particularly Partey are the difference between Arsenal competing in Champions League (and the additional income it brings) or not.

          Eddie: I have heard/read that Papa and Torreira are stalling on moves because they do not want to take pay cuts. Any truth to that?

  2. Luvuyo Daniel Hans says:

    The arsenal must make sure about this deal and also sign Ibrahim Sarange please that boy is like Patrick Viera for attacking ,skills ,long passing and the good game reader he is brilliant and i thank you.

  3. Wayne says:

    Why Edu and co,keep beating around the bush to pay the reduced price of 45m pounds for Aouar, after Arteta have already sanctioned the move. Please get this deal done now. Frustrating. The sooner Aouar joins, the better it will be for Arsenal,because, he will have more time to train and integrate with the team. Arsenal next seven games are to are all tough matches. Also, arsenal must get rid of Sokratis, Mustafi, Torriera, Kolasinac and Guendouzi next week,while ,opting to buy Ibrahim Sangare for 10-15m pounds instead of 45m pounds TP. Let’s go Arsenal and beat Liverpool again on Monday.

  4. AWIDA says:

    Edie you said lazio agree deal with arsenal for mustafi, how sure are you about this deal?

  5. Vefc says:

    Arsenal should sign top CM like Aouar for the 45M bid required by Lyon. Edu let’s do this so as to sign Aouar for wins

  6. WETAKA ivan says:

    It’s only what arteta can do to save the team
