‘Tears in my eyes’: Some Arsenal fans think their chances of landing Houssem Aouar have shot up

A number of Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the claim by Canal Plus journalist Felix Herve suggesting Matteo Guendouzi is being eyed by Lyon in case of Houssem Aouar’s departure.

The Arsenal midfielder has been frozen out at the Emirates Stadium in wake of him grabbing Brighton striker Neal Maupay by the throat towards the end of the Gunners’ defeat at the Amex Stadium.

The Daily Mail claimed that there were taunts from the Arsenal man about how much he and his teammates earned compared to those of Brighton, and the incident was thought to be the last straw for Arteta.

France Football has claimed that a meeting is scheduled at the end of the season to make a final decision on Guendouzi’s case and, unless he apologises and changes his attitude, it is “very unlikely” that he will be kept on.

The outlet added that all options are apparently being considered – a sale, loan or part-exchange – for a player valued at 30m to 35m Euros (£27m to £31.5million).

Meanwhile, Felix Herve has claimed on Twitter this week that “in the event of Houssem Aouar’s departure, Lyon are thinking of Matteo Guendouzi.

“The midfielder is no longer part of Mikel Arteta’s plans and would be interested in Lyon’s project. Only condition: play in a European Cup.”

This has thrilled many Arsenal fans, who now think they have a key bargaining chip to put forward for the extremely talented Aouar, a player who Pep Guardiola has called “incredible” in the past.

Here is what some Gunners supporters have been saying on social media:
