£54 million midfielder Aouar opens up and OFFICIALLY confirms Arsenal talks over summer transfer deal are happening
French midfielder Houssem Aouar has confirmed that transfer talks are ongoing between Arsenal and Lyon.
It is no secret in the media that Arsenal are very keen to make sure that Aouar is the latest name to make that transfer move to the Emirates, as Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the Frenchman.
Aouar had a terrific season with the French side last season and is firmly established as one of the most exciting players in the game, and it is believed that Arteta wants to build his side around Aouar in the coming seasons.
Lyon have recently come out and admitted that there has been talks between the two clubs about a possible transfer deal deal for the player, and it is also claimed that the Gunners are heading back with an offer of £34 million in hope a deal can get done.
Now, amid all the speculation, Aouar has confirmed that transfer talks are ongoing between Arsenal and Lyon, The Frenchman was quizzed about his future following his side’s 1-1 draw with Lorient.
Speaking to Canal+, he said: “There is contact with clubs, I don’t know yet.
“We’ll see what happens in the future.”
Look, there is no doubt that the lad has the potential to become a top player for the club and Arteta clearly sees something special in the lad, but at the end of the day he still has alot to prove in the game and signing him for the right price is a must for the club.
But it will be very interesting to see if Arsenal can get this player signed up, he would certainly add to the Arsenal side for the next 10 years.
