EPL: Arsenal identify Houssem Aouar alternative

English Premier League outfit Arsenal are still in need of that creative spark in the team as they look forward to the summer transfer window to having that addition in the team.

French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon creative midfielder Houssem Aouar was the target for the North London outfit in the last summer transfer window but they were unable to meet the demands of the club.

The Gunners are still interested in a creative midfielder to get the best of Thomas Partey and will make that move but they might not be able to land Houssem Aouar again with other suitors joining the race.

Reports claim Juventus and Bayern Munich has entered the race for the Lyon midfielder which will make it a difficult one for the North London outfit. The high financial demand for Houssem Aouar also makes a deal almost impossible.

Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano has confirmed that the North London club are already eyeing an alternative ahead of the summer transfer window, stating that Hungary midfielder Dominik Szoboszlai is the man that is being wanted at the Emirates Stadium.

He stressed that the Red Bull Salzburg midfielder has now been lined up by the Gunners and hinted that they could make a bid for him in the January winter transfer window or wait until the summer window.

Dominik Szoboszlai will not only bring in the creativity that is needed in the Mikel Aretta team but he will serve as a perfect replacement for Arsenal outcast Mesut Ozil who has been excluded from the squad this season.

Dominik Szoboszlai is just 20 but he has been impressive so far this campaign and last season. He scored a total of five goals and seven assists in his first 10 matches.

The great form and performance has earned him a call to the Hungary national team.
