Offer accepted: Arsenal closer than ever to completing €25million transfer following talks

Posted by

Arsenal are reportedly closing in on a transfer deal for Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar for around €25million.

According to Todo Fichajes, the France international has accepted the Gunners’ offer, while the clubs have also held advanced negotiations over a deal, which is now “closer than ever”, according to the report.

Aouar looks an ideal signing for Arsenal in a problem position, with Mikel Arteta’s side long looking starved of creativity after the gradual phasing-out of Mesut Ozil before his January departure to Fenerbahce.

Martin Odegaard then replaced Ozil with a six-month loan move from Real Madrid, but he hasn’t ended up staying at the Emirates Stadium permanently.

Aouar’s form in Ligue 1 and the Champions League in recent times shows that he could be ready to take on that playmaker role in Arteta’s side and help lift the club up the table.

ESPN have also linked Aouar with Arsenal, and they suggested the 23-year-old would have no reservations about joining the north London giants even though they’re not currently able to offer him European football.

  1. there has been a lot of delays in ways and manner Arsenal sign players this gives me a lot of concern over my darling Gooners and I pray the manager will use this window to bring the right players quickly so that they can blend quickly and give us the right result at the appropriate time knowing this coming season will be highly competitive

  2. The midfield is a problem position for Arsenal. There is no creativity in the side that resulted in them dropping points in the November-December period, ultimately missing out on the CL with only 6 points. They should just sign one of Sabitzer or Aouar, both being more likely to move and within the limited financial resources of Arsenal. They need to move quick though, and get one of them to play in pre-season.

  3. This very play was offered to as at £50M last season. What has changed. This’s stupidity of the highest order

  4. This man is good for our midfield. Let go for him, and we also need locatellu and doku then arsenal I’ll be changed team.
