Arsenal have purportedly effectively agreed terms with Houssem Aouar on a five-year deal and remain sure of completing a deal for the Lyon midfielder.
Houssem Aouar is one of two midfielders accepted to be on Mikel Arteta’s radar, alongside Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey, ahead of the October 5 deadline.
Lyon sporting director Juninho Pernambucano uncovered recently that no offers have yet been made, however that could soon change.
Italian columnist Nicolo Schira proposes that, while talks are progressing between the two clubs, the 22-year-old has clarified that he wants to move to the Emirates Stadium.
Houssem Aouar is said to have agreed personal terms with Arsenal as long as two weeks ago, leaving it down to the London club and Ligue 1 club Lyon to settle on a transfer fee.
Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta has just fortified his squad this summer with the arrivals of William Saliba and Gabriel.
