Fabrizio Romano provides update on Arsenal's pursuit of Houssem Aouar

Italian sports journalist and transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has spoken out on Arsenal's pursuit of Lyon star Houssem Aouar. Aouar was heavily linked with a move to the Premier League side during the summer transfer window, however, the transfer didn't happen. The 22-year-old has been a key part of the Lyon team. During this season, he has made 16 appearances in which he has scored 3 goals and provided 3 assists. "They are still looking for this kind of player, they were also trying for [Dominik] Szoboszlai who then joined Leipzig, but they were trying really for Dominik Szoboszlai,” Romano said on the Feather on Football podcast. "And also Aouar has always been the first target for Arsenal. They love him and they are convinced he would be perfect in their midfield. "The problem is that Lyon are asking for €60million (£53.3m) they are having an amazing season, they want to be back in the Champions League, so at the moment with the president of Lyon it’s really hard to negotiate in January for this kind of player." source - football.london / Join us on Telegram
