Arsenal are determined to land Lyon playmaker, Houssem Aouar and are making moves to bring the star to the Emirates stadium.
The Gunners reportedly have a £250million budget to spend on signings this summer window as Mikel Arteta seeks to rebuild his squad after a disappointing season.
However, Arsenal have now reignited their interest in the the 23-year-old and have reportedly agreed personal terms with negotiations opened with Lyon over the transfer fee.
The player was missing from Lyon’s training and some fans linked it with a transfer away from his club amidst interest from Arsenal.
But he has since come out to debunk the news saying: “Once again, unfortunately another fake news was published across social media.”
“I don’t usually answer what’s been said about me… I was sick and hospitalised over the weekend.
Should the Gunners complete this move, it gives the club a great opportunity to get a world-class midfielder in beside Thomas Partey.
