Téléfoot: Lyon star Houssem Aouar agrees to join Arsenal

Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar has made the decision to join Arsenal, according to Téléfoot.

The much coveted 22-year-old has been on the radar of Europe’s leading clubs after his performances in the past two seasons.

It is reported that Aouar favoured a move to Juventus or Barcelona, but neither club has made an offer.

Manchester City were also keen on the OL homegrown talent, but also haven’t followed up.

Arsenal now have a great opportunity to sign Aouar, who has warmed to the idea of joining Mikel Arteta’s side.

The two clubs will begin formal discussions in the coming days to negotiate the transfer fee for Aouar.

He is one of two midfielders Arsenal have at the top of their list, the other being Atletico Madrid star Thomas Partey.

Aouar has already made 139 appearances for Lyon with a return of 24 goals and 27 assists.
