Live: Arsenal meeting £60million asking price, Edu next four moves after £20m deal.

Arsenal could reportedly be set to complete the signing of Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar in the next few days.

The talented 22-year-old has been strongly linked with Arsenal by L’Equipe, as translated by Get French Football News, and it may be that they’re now stepping up their interest.

According to Don Balon, the Gunners have decided to make an offer to meet Lyon’s £60million asking price for Aouar, and that a deal could be days away from completion.

As previously noted by GFFN, it seems other potential suitors for Aouar have not yet firmed up their interest in the France Under-21 international.

This could put Arsenal in a strong position, and fans will hope Don Balon’s report is accurate.

Aouar has looked potentially world class with his form in Ligue 1 and in the Champions League, and it would be some statement by Arsenal if they could win the race for his signature.

Mikel Arteta is putting an exciting team together after lifting the mood at the Emirates Stadium, with Gabriel Magalhaes and Willian looking promising signings this summer.

Aouar, however, would be on another level for the north Londoners and show they’re really back in business as serious top four contenders.

Edu has already decided Arsenal’s next four moves after £20m

Arsenal’s transfer plans are beginning to take shape with less than a month to go until deadline day.

Despite plenty of rumours, the Gunners’ activity has been rather quiet thus far with Willian, Gabriel Magalhaes and Dani Ceballos – on another season-long loan – the only deals completed in terms of incomings.

And in terms of exits, Henrikh Mkhitaryan remains the only high-profile name to leave the Emirates Stadium as he’s joined AS Roma on a permanent basis.

Emiliano Martinez could soon double the number of outgoings as the north London outfit have accepted a £20m bid from Aston Villa for the goalkeeper.

That windfall will allow Arsenal turn their attentions to strengthening the squad in several other areas.

 

Reports claim that a replacement for Martinez has already been lined up.

The Gunners are targeting at least one more midfield signing in addition to Ceballos, with Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey among the club’s main targets.

However, Atletico are insistent that they will not sell the Ghanaian international unless his buyout clause of £45million is met and have reportedly rejected two swap deal proposals.

Another midfielder being linked with a move to the Emirates is Lyon’s Houssem Aouar who reportedly wants to join a Premier League club this summer, although the Gunners need to raise funds before contemplating a deal.
