Should Arsenal go back for Aouar in January?

Is Aouar a sensible move?


With the January transfer window over two months away, we can be forgiven for thinking ahead but given how things have gone it will come around so quick, so we have to be on the ball.


Having failed in the bids Arsenal reportedly made for Houssem Aouar in the summer transfer window will it be right to go back in for another move for the Lyon midfielder? Is it worth another attempt to try and get our target or will it be a waste of time?


The question that needs to be asked is just how likely does it seem that Arsenal will go back in for him in January? In addition, if they did go in for him, given that Lyon refused to budge in the summer transfer window, it doesn’t seem any more likely that they will budge in January either, not halfway through the season anyhow.


Given that we finally got the signature, albeit late on deadline day of long-term target Thomas Partey, it can be said that we may not need Aouar anymore. But of course, it was never a case of Partey or Aouar, it was always a case of Partey AND Aouar.


So, it could be said that we may just go back in for him next summer if not in January. And of course the way that Mesut Ozil has been isolated and omitted from the team, and the fact that Dani Ceballos looks like he will be returning to Real Madrid at the end of the season as there wasn’t an option to buy in his latest contract, we may just find ourselves back to square one in the search of yet another midfielder. Should we go back in for Aouar or should we focus our attentions elsewhere Gooners?

  1. Noooo! I watch a lot of French league football and I can tell you for a fact that aouar is not better than ceballos.. what an overrated player…

  2. Cost effective players only. I’ve always said Aouar is massively hyped. Enough of buying hyped players at ridiculous prices. Laca+Pepe + Aouar= all mistakes we’ve made as a result of the hype. Enough!!

  3. The way Arsenal board works, it will be foolish to expect a marque signing in the January window.

    It is better to not raise hopes and end up cursing the board for lack of signings. It will only add up the negativity.

    Realistically, getting rid of all the dead woods and reducing the wage bill would mark a good transfer window. And that at best should be the expectations.

    If we can achieve that, we will free up space. And then we have all the right to expect another big signing in subsequent window 🙂

  4. Only at a sensible price, if aulas ask for more than 35m walk away. Maybe performance based clauses like goals, assist or appearance can sweeten the deal.

  5. No thank you.
    Not for the ridiculous price tag that was being reported throughout the summer.

    I watched his YouTube clips that are made to make any player look better than they really are and I was not that impressed. Overrated/ overhyped and over priced.

    Out of Partey and Aouar i wanted Partey and glad it’s him that we got.
