And it’s clear that fans are keen for the pair to be signed up, so much so that some are getting in touch with Edu.
With the technical director now assuming more responsibility over the Gunners’ transfer dealings after the departure of head of football Raul Sanllehi, fans are getting in touch with the Brazilian over potential transfer negotiations.
In the hope of persuading Edu to get a double deal done for Partey and Aouar, one fan took matters into his own hands.
@essaaa_a took to social media and uploaded an Instagram story of a brief conversation with the Gunners technical director.
The supporter tagged both Edu and Arsenal head coach Mikel Arteta in a picture with a caption that read: “@edugaspar and @mikelarteta en route to sealing Partey and Aouar next.”
To which Edu reacted with a laughing emoji.

As expected, this exchange prompted a huge response from other Arsenal fans on Twitter.
One tweeted the classic ‘It’s happening’ gif, another said: “Edu,” and others commented with excitement.
