Arsenal refuse let go of Aouar, 19-year-old defender officially on loan, Sheffield Utd make second swoop move and Arsenal defender to be offloaded



Positioned for several weeks on the Houssem Aouar file , Arsenal clearly remains in the race. According to our information, the Gunners have absolutely not given up on securing the services of the Lyon midfielder. A first offer was sent to Olympique Lyonnais , who deemed it insufficient.

However, Arsenal has planned to send a new proposal soon, revised upwards. Aouar is a priority choice for trainer Mikel Arteta , and within the board of the London club, we seem determined to do the maximum to achieve this deal, while ensuring, however, not to enter into a logic of overbidding. the transfer. It remains to be seen whether this will make it possible to find a point of balance with the demands of the OL . Case to be continued.

The New York-born 19-year-old is yet to play a senior game for Arsenal but is said to be highly thought of by current boss, Mikel Arteta.

Mikel Arteta set to offload two defenders in major shake-up

Arsenal’s search for an additional midfielder remains an ongoing battle, with neither Atletico Madrid or Lyon prepared to cash in on Thomas Partey or Houssem Aouar respectively.

Experienced centre-back Shkodran Mustafi may be offloaded by Arteta in the final two weeks of the transfer window in order to make room for players atop the Spaniard’s wishlist.

Mustafi has been injured since July and is yet to return to first-team training, falling behind new additions in the pecking order. Over the summer, Arsenal welcomed centre-back duo William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes to the club, further squeezing Mustafi out of Arteta’s new-look side.
