Arsenal in another £36.5m bid for Ligue 1 star


English Premier League club Arsenal are not giving up on their bid to land Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar this summer transfer window as they are reported to be preparing another bid.

This is not the first time the Gunners will be submitting a bid for Houssem Aouar as their first bid of cash plus Matteo Guendouzi was rejected by the French Ligue 1 outfit.

Lyon have insisted on taking within the region of £50 million for the youngster but the Gunners cannot meet and are positive that they can still make a deal happen before the summer window ends.

The latest report by Telefoot Chaine claims the North London club will now make an imminent £36.5 million bid for the midfielder with the hope that it could be considered this time around.

The Gunners are now clear front-runners in the bid for Houssem Aouar after beating Man City and Juventus who were reported to be admiring the player and making moves earlier in the summer window.

While Arsenal have already made some additions in this summer transfer window, they are still hoping to strengthen with the signature of Houssem Aouar and Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid to be able to compete for titles.
