Houssem Aouar still coming to EPL?


Reputable transfer journalist Fabrizio Romano has hinted that French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar still dreams of playing in the Premier League in the future.

Romano Fabrizio did not mention if the France international will be mobbing to Arsenal when he is coming to the Premier League or not but the North London outfit are known to be obvious suitors for the interesting midfielder.

The Gunners made attempts to snap of the signature of Houssem Aouar last summer transfer window but an agreement was not reached with the Ligue 1 outfit for a deal to be sealed.

Arsenal were forced to make a move for Ghanaian international Thomas Partey from Spanish la Liga outfit Atletico Madrid by activating his release clause on the summer transfer deadline day.

However, the reputable journalist hinted that the North London outfit can still sign Houssem Aouar because he is still very interested in playing in the English League.

However, Fabrizio Romano made it clear that that the North London outfit are also considering other options as they are still interested in a player like Houssem Aouar. RB Salzburg player Dominik Szoboszlai is the player Arsenal are considering to bring in.

“What I’m told is that Arsenal are looking to sign this kind of player. They were looking [at] Houssem Aouar, they are considering the situation of Dominik Szoboszlai.

“The situation is that Arsenal [have been] following Szoboszlai [for] years. So, Let’s see what will happen next summer or January, but Arsenal are following the player” he stated.

Howbeit, the Gunners are currently enjoying the service of Thomas Partey who has helped to stabilize the team in the midfield but there are chances that Mikel Arteta will make a move for the signature of a creative player as he has been advised to do so.
