Arsenal’s expectations of signing Houssem Aouar from Lyon this current summer’s transfer window have purportedly been hampered by rival enthusiasm from an anonymous Champions League club.
Houssem Aouar is perceived to be one of Arsenal’s top targets for the rest of the transfer window as Mikel Arteta endeavors to reinforce his midfield positions.
In any case, Lyon’s £54m asking price is ending up being a significant obstacle in negotiations, especially as the Ligue 1 club are reluctant to acknowledge Matteo Guendouzi as a major aspect of the deal.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas as of late freely addressed whether Arsenal have the methods or want to push through a deal this summer.
The Gunners’ odds of handling the Houssem Aouar presently seem to have been hit further, there are reports revealing that an anonymous Champions League club have joined the race to sign the 22-year-old and have presented a proposal to Lyon.
Bayern Munich and Juventus are among the clubs thought to follow Houssem Aouar, while Manchester City have also recently been connected.
Notwithstanding Houssem Aouar, Arsenal are also considering moves for Amadou Diawara and Thomas Partey before the end of the transfer window one month from now.
