Houssem Aouar remains ‘Arsenal’s No 1 target in the summer transfer window as Mikel Arteta looks to build his side around the Lyon star’
- Arsenal remain determined to sign Lyon captain Houssem Aouar before Oct 5
- The Ligue 1 club value the 22-year-old midfielder at 60 million euros (£55.4m)
- The Gunners had offered Matteo Guendouzi as a makeweight in the deal
- But Arsenal director Edu is yet to agree a deal with Lyon counterpart Juninho
