Arsenal ‘convinced’ of Aouar transfer
Arsenal are reportedly convinced they will land Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar in this transfer window.
According to Calcio Mercato, the Gunners are preparing a bid for the French midfielder, who has been repeatedly linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium.
While Dani Ceballos has returned for a second loan spell with the club, Aouar’s arrival on a permanent basis would be a huge sign of intent from the north London club.
Aouar’s performances in the Champions League last season turned a lot of heads, most noticeably his impressive showing during Lyon’s quarter-final win over Manchester City in August.

Arteta on ‘lucky’ Arsenal and the desire to improve
Mikel Arteta has outlined his desire to continue improving as Arsenal boss after a few ‘lucky’ moments against West Ham on Saturday night.
The Gunners overcame David Moyes’ side with a late winner, giving Arsenal two victories from two to start the 2020/21 campaign.
