Breaking News ! Good evening, Arsenal fans. Here are your evening headlines for Sunday, September 20. Lyon president delivers Auoar update Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has issued an update on the future of midfielder Houssem Aouar, who is wanted by Arsenal. Aulus was asked outright whether he believes the France international will complete a move to north London before the transfer window closes on October 5. He replied: “No I don't think so, no offer yet. It seems that Arsenal don't want to, or can't invest the price for Houssem, who is our best player.” Aulas comments were made after Lyon's sporting director, Juninho, confirmed the Gunners’ interest in Aouar and revealed discussions were held over a potential swap deal involving Matteo Guendouzi. “Houssem Aouar is really well-liked by (Mikel) Arteta,” said Juninho. “There were some discussions for [Matteo] Guendouzi, who is also a good player. He was brought up during the discussion. “But we don't need his profile, we were very clear. If it is like that, we are not interested at all, we cut the conversation, that is where things ended.” Video Loading Video Unavailable Click to play Tap to play The video will start in8Cancel Play now Arteta open to Kolasinac sale Following Kieran Tierney’s excellent form to close out last season, impressing Arteta greatly as he switched between left centre-back and left-back, Sead Kolasinac has been told he is free to leave Arsenal.

According to Corriere dello Sport, via Sport Witness, Sokratis is “waiting” for the Senegal international to confirm his Manchester switch. Napoli and City are not negotiating directly after their relationship soured when Jorginho moved to Chelsea instead of joining Pep Guardiola’s side. Sokratis has one year remaining on his contract at Arsenal and has fallen a long way down the centre-back pecking order with the arrival of Gabriel, the return of William Saliba, and the re-integration of Rob Holding.
