EPL: Pep Guardiola backs Arsenal’s move for target


Pep Guardiola has already given his words on Arsenal target and Lyon star Houssem Aouar amidst speculations of his move to the Emirates Stadium this summer window.

The Gunners are reported to be interested in the signature of Houssem Aouar and have established contact for him but the first offer of a swap deal plus cash has been rejected by the club.

Houssem Aouar played a very big role in ensuring Man City’s exit from the Champions League and that has caught the attention of Pep Guardiola to confirm the quality of the Arsenal target.

According to him, Houssem Aouar is a very good player and incredible on the pitch. He added that the player is very excellent and calm with the ball at his feet to add with his excellent technical qualities.

This development can encourage the North London outfit into making a move for the star player as he would be available for discussion but for a very big fee.

The North London club have already secured the signature of Brazilian international winger Willian from Chelsea but are still very active in the market as they hope to rebuild the team to compete for titles in the coming season.
