Aouar’s move to Arsenal looks even more likely as Lyon call a press conference to unveil his replacement

The entire situation with Houssem Aouar has dragged on for weeks if not months now, but it finally looks like a conclusion could come within days.

It’s been said time and time again but no club is going to sell their best player until they have a solid replacement lined up, so this news for France suggests that Aouar will finally be allowed to leave:

Paqueta could be an excellent signing for Lyon as he was highly touted before he moved to Italy, but his form started to tail off and he’s clearly out of favour in Milan now.

Despite that he’s a quality player who could thrive in a new environment, while you can be sure that Sporting Director Juninho will give him plenty of advice about how to succeed.

The latest update from Arsenal’s interest suggested that talks were still ongoing, so everything is now pointing to this deal finally happening:

It’s not clear if Mikel Arteta needs to sell players first to make this happen but getting additional funds will only help them if they need to increase their bid, and it looks like both clubs will be left in a good situation here.

Arsenal will get a proven quality player who they can build their team around, while Lyon will get a big fee and a replacement who has the potential to be a very good player for them too.

    Let’s hope that the rumour mill is correct and Lyon do sign Lucas Pacuet so that we can then land Houssem Aouar, whether or not if we can land Tomas Partey as well in this window is another thing but if we can offload the deadwood and sorry but l’m including Mesut Ozil into that as it seems like his Arsenal carrer is at an end (okay we most probably will have to take a hit and won’t get no money for him) but without meaning to sound harsh if we can get him off of the book’s just think of the money we’ll save which Mikel can use on new players.
