Arsenal news and transfers recap: Mesut Ozil update, Houssem Aouar agent claim

Aouar opens up on failed transfer

Houssem Aouar was asked about his failed move to Arsenal, and insisted he was more than happy to be staying at the Parc Olympique Lyonnais.

He said: “Of course I asked myself all the necessary questions.”

“I am in the headspace to have a great season with my club and get back the points that we have lost.

“So of course we are going to try to do the best season and to try to put the team and the club back in its rightful place, at the top of France.

“Disappointed? I am the opposite.

“I am at home, in the club that I love, with my friends and my family.

“So certainly I have all my bearings and it is giving me even more motivation to have a good season and to bring the club back into the top places in France.”
