Houssem Aouar

If emerging reports are to be believed, then the English Premier League club Arsenal might announce another summer signing before the transfer window ends on October 5.

So far, the North London club have been able to confirm the capture of Willian from Chelsea and Gabriel Magalhaes from French Ligue 1 club Lille while two other on-loan players were made permanent with the coming of William Saliba from loan to make it a busy window for the Gunners.

However, the Gunners are now believed to be chasing the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar and Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey as their remaining target for the summer window.

It is now being reported by Daily Star that the North London club have agreed on personal terms with the player but there has not been an agreement on a fee with Lyon.

It is understood that Houssem Aouar wants to join Arsenal and will do all he can to make it happen but Arsenal will have to agree with Lyon as a fee of £60 million is being negotiated.

Mikel Arteta is making efforts to make Arsenal title contenders and has identified the need to bring in quality players to help the project.
