Houssem Aouar is a player Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal have targeted in the recent past, but they weren’t willing to meet the sum demanded by Lyon chairman Jean-Michel Aulas to carry out the proposed transfer.
The player has less than 18 months left on his deal and has not reached an agreement to sign an extension, according to a report from Calciomercato.
Therefore, the highly-regarded Frenchman could pack his suitcase this summer and move elsewhere.
At the start of 2022, the player changed entourages and is now represented by IMC Stellar Sports. The choice could push the player towards a fresh adventure next term.
As per the report, Houssem will leave in the next transfer window and his long-term future could be in either Italy or England.
When discussing the variants in the Premier League, the Gunners get a mention. it is said the club’s interest in him is well known, while in Serie A, Aouar is in Inter Milan and Juventus notebooks.
I Nerazzurri are thinking about him as he can play across the midfield, but would only think about taking the current Les Gones man on favourable economic conditions.
With the Londoners in the mix to make new attempt, Arsenal could be set to battle with Simone Inzaghi’s side for Aouar’s signature this summer.
