Arsenal are reportedly on the hunt for Lyon midfield giant, Houssem Aouar as the look to strengthen their midfield spine ahead of next season. Aouar is obviously just another name on a long list of rumoured targets with the transfer mill seemingly churning out new names on a daily basis.
Arsenal’s interest in Houssem Aouar is reportedly very genuine and they are willing and ready to break the bank to bring in the player, although the current financial state of the club means they will also have to be creative with their offers.
According to French publication, ‘Lé Equipè’, Edu called Lyon for Aouar and offered Guendouzi plus money but Lyon rejected. The Report says Lyon want only money and not intereted in a player included in the deal.
Lyon want cash in the region of €60m for their midfield maestro, Aouar. Whether Arsenal can afford to pay this remains to be seen.
