Arsenal have recognized Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar as their top transfer target heading into the new Premier League season, as per a report.
Regardless of signing Real Madrid’s Dani Ceballos on loan for a subsequent season, Arsenal are probably peering toward up further midfield fortifications including Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey.
Houssem Aouar is contracted to Lyon until 2023 and would allegedly cost in the area of £55.4m to prise him away from Lyon, however as per reports that the Gunners are resolved to signing the 22-year-old before the summer transfer window closes.
The report guarantees that Mikel Arteta needs to construct his Arsenal side around Houssem Aouar and technical director Edu is in negotiations with Lyon in regards to a possible move.
Arsenal recently offered undesirable midfielder Matteo Guendouzi as a part of a deal for Houssem Aouar, but Lyon boss Juninho uncovered that the Ligue 1 outfit had turned down that proposition.
Houssem Aouar scored nine goals and ten assists for Les Gones over all competition during the 2019-20 season.
