Why Houssem Aouar deal funding has been settled already


Should the English Premier League club, Arsenal agree on a fee with French Ligue 1 club, Lyon for Houssem Aouar, then funding it will not be a big deal as a result of the arrangements on the ground.

A heavy hammer is already hovering the sky and set to fall on some players who will definitely fund the deal for the Lyon playmaker as manager Mikel Arteta is very keen on having the business concluded.

There have been ongoing changes behind the stage at the Emirates Stadium and that includes doing away with some players and other officials. We have started witnessing some while others will come happen very shortly.

With the 22-year-old on the wish list of the Gunners, they will be willing to do everything to land him and that includes beating competition from other suitors.

Some players have already been listed to be on their way and that will be enough to fund the deal for Houssem Aouar as well as make space for him.

Matteo Guendouzi leads the name of the players the Gunners will cash in from his sale as he is already being frozen out of the team. Lucas Torrieira has also been mentioned as one of the players that will give Arsenal nothing less than a £20 million.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles is also close to sealing a move with North London not willing to listen to offers less than £20 million. All these moves will definitely fund Houssem Aouar.
