Arsenal fans have taken to Twitter to react after ESPN revealed an interesting bit of information in the race for Houssem Aouar.

What’s the story?

Well, ESPN believe that Tottenham are planning to include Tanguy Ndombele in their bid to sign the Lyon No.8.

Arsenal are also keen, but ESPN are claiming that Mikel Arteta needs to sell players before he can make a move for Aouar.

Both Premier League clubs – who often reside in the top six – should easily be able to afford £21m.

In Arsenal’s case, the Guardian believe they bid £35m as recently as August.

In that respect, surely Edu would now jump at the chance to sign Aouar – a long-term target – for £14m less than that offer?

Nevertheless, let’s see what the Arsenal fans on Twitter have been saying about ESPN‘s bizarre news…
