Arsenal hoping to strike €40M deal to sign midfielder with personal terms already agreed

Posted by

Arsenal have an agreement with Houssem Aouar and will now look to strike a deal with Lyon, according to Todo Fichajes.

Aouar has been continually linked with a move away from Lyon over the past year or so, yet at Lyon he remains.

Arsenal are now thought to be trying to change that, with the Gunners looking to sign the midfielder, having already splashed out on Nuno Tavares, Albert Sambi Lokonga and Ben White.

Todo Fichajes believe that Arsenal already have an agreement over personal terms with Aouar and will now work on finding an agreement with Lyon, with the two parties not thought to be far apart.

It’s claimed that Arsenal are winning to offer up to €40M, including add-ons, to Lyon in hope that they will be successful in convincing them to part ways with Aouar this summer.

No major outlet in the UK has published anything to suggest that this deal is close, so we ought to take it with a pinch of salt for the time being.

But, if true, Arsenal are showing some real ambition in the transfer market!

  1. We are waiting with open arms, Houssem Ouar, is a pure masterpiece, if we can get him to spin the number ten role, then I think next season we will be on another level.

  2. i cannot believed to all what arsenal said, because any season they said they need so many players verbaly and they’re not willing to splash the cash to buy players, most of the times are trying to swap deal for some players while other clubs are not agree for that they need money

  3. This season, maybe Aouar is our Partey — the ace in the hole that will not be used until the preferred option (Maddison, apparently) falls through. That seemed to be what happened with Partey last year, when the supposedly preferred Aouar fell through (maybe when his brother/agent demanded too much of a fee for himself).

    I personally preferred Partey last year and Aouar this, lol.

  4. Aour is a cheaper alternative than Maddison, but Maddison is well proven in the EPL, while signing Aour may involves some risk.
