Arsenal fans have been discussing the the emerging situation on summer target Houssem Aouar, amid reports he could be keen on a move to Madrid or Barcelona.
ESPN claims the Frenchman was somewhat surprised at the lack of push Arsenal put in for him, and he is now said to be more open to the idea of Madrid or Barca making a move.
It is claimed the Gunners put in a bid of around £31m for the Lyon star, someway short of the apparent £50m the French club want if they’re to even consider a sale.
However, looking at how some Arsenal fans have been reacting on Twitter, it seems that the emergence of Emile Smith-Rowe and the summer addition of Thomas Partey seems to have changed supporters’ minds on signing Aouar.
Once a player who many Gunners fans wanted above all else, it seems some fans think the club should simply move on now.
Bruh forget this guy .. he clearly isn’t interested

Why we bothering if he’s supposedly not interested.

I like Buendia instead

Then we should never go for him again, if he thinks he’s too good to play for Arsenal, no player is bigger than my club ❤️❤️

If he doesn’t want the move 110% then don’t take him simple as that. We need players who are fully committed to arsenal

Then let him keep waiting. I think we have Smith row already
