Houssem Aouar’s agent has been spotted in London amid rumours that Arsenal want to sign his client.
ESPN say that Arsenal want to bid for Aouar, who looks to be up for sale.
Lyon are in financial peril and need to cash in on their more valuable assets, which is what Aouar remains, despite a rather poor season.
Arsenal have been long term admires of Aouar, after making a move for him last summer, but failing to get a deal done.
Intriguingly, Aouar’s brother has now posted on Instagram today that he is in London.
Could it finally happen?
It is not clear whether he is in the capital on business or just for personal reasons, but some Arsenal fans will be hoping that it does suggest that a move could be on.
Aouar is a very classy operator, who could really enhance the creativity available in Arsenal’s midfield.
And at £20 million (The Sun) he could be one of the bargain buys of the summer.
