Premier League club Arsenal has begun negotiation talks with French side Olympique Lyonnais over the transfer of their top-rated midfielder Houssem Aouar.

Premier League club Arsenal is currently negotiating with French side Olympique Lyonnais over the transfer of their highly rated and skillful midfielder Houssem Aouar.

The midfielder is valued at €60m by Lyon, but Arsenal is willing to offer around €60m (£46m) for the signing of Houssem Aouar. Houssem Aouar 22, is a very good attacking midfielder that has the abilities to create chances out of nowhere for his teammates.

Aouar's age is something that excites the Arsenal hierarchy. Since the transfer of Aaron Ramsey to Juventus, Arsenal has lacked a box to box and creative midfielder of such capacity.

Houssem Aouar scored 9 times in 41 appearances for Lyon in the 2019/2020 season and will only get better. His ability to drive the ball through the midfield is something Arsenal really need. A creative genius, ability to draw fouls and take on opposing players.

Houssem Aouar will give Arsenal a good dimension in the Premier League due to his confidence and composure with the ball

Arsenal is looking to offload some fringe players also to help finance more transfer deals, including bringing in Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid.

Some of the players looking to leave Arsenal in the remaining two weeks of the transfer window include Lukas Torreria, Mateo Guendouzi, Sokratis, and Mustafi.

Mohammed Elneny is set to stay at the Emirates beyond this season as Mikel Arteta wants to utilize him as a backup plan at the club.

Arsenal's last match against Westham United showed their lack of steel in the middle of the park and the lack of a creative genius. Questions remains why Mesut Ozil is not recalled into the team, when he is someone that can provide that extra creativity to the arsenal team.
