According to transfer expert Nicolo Shira, Arsenal ‘agreed terms’ with Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar on a long-term contract two weeks ago.
Aouar has been heavily linked with a move to the Emirates this summer with Mikel Arteta seemingly making the Frenchman one of his top remaining priorities.
The 22-year-old was outstanding for his club in the latter rounds of last season’s Champions League, helping the French Ligue 1 side eliminate the much-fancied Manchester City.
Having seen, and been suitably impressed, with those performances, Aouar is seemingly a wanted man at the Emirates and they may be edging towards a deal.
Journalist Julien Laurens recently reported for ESPN FC that Aouar was Arteta’s ‘dream signing’, perhaps seeing a likeness to his own former playing days.
