MetiNews.Com - Arsenal are keen on signing Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar before the summer transfer window closes
Breaking News ! Arsenal have enjoyed a successful summer transfer window, with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta looking to strengthen his squad in all areas. Willian arrived on a free transfer after his release from Chelsea, and made an impressive debut with three assists against Fulham last weekend. Gabriel Magalhaes joined from Lille to add quality to Arsenal's backline, whilst Dani Ceballos re-joined on another season-long loan deal. Despite the arrivals, it is understood Arteta is still keen on signing another central midfielder.

Another player on Arsenal's radar is Lyon's Houssem Aouar, who is fast becoming one of the most highly sought-after midfielders in European football. And whilst Lyon claim that they have yet to receive a bid for the Frenchman, the player himself wants to seal a move to the Emirates Stadium before the transfer window closes on October 5.

"For now, there is nothing for these players," Lyon sporting director Juninho told Telefoot Chaine. "We have not received anything for Houssem, we have not received anything for Memphis." If Aouar arrives, the Frenchman is expected to compete for a place in Arsenal's midfield, with Arteta preferring to use either a 4-3-3 or a 3-4-3 formation. The 22-year-old would battle with Ceballos, Granit Xhaka, Matteo Guendouzi and Mohamed Elneny for a slot in the team, with Lucas Torreira expected to depart.
