Houssem Aouar has no regrets at failing to seal a move to Arsenal

‘I’m happy to stay here, this is my club’: Houssem Aouar has no regrets at failing to seal a move to Arsenal as the France international insists he is relishing another season with Lyon

  • Houssem Aouar says he is happy to have stayed at Lyon this summer 
  • The France midfielder had been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal 
  • Neither club were prepared to meet Lyon’s £45million release clause 
  • The Gunners instead opted to make a deadline day move for Thomas Partey 

Houssem Aouar is adamant staying at Lyon this summer will prove to be the right decision after he was heavily linked with a move to Arsenal.

The highly rated midfielder was expected to leave the Ligue 1 side with the Gunners the favourites to secure his signature but a £45million transfer failed to materialise before the deadline.

Arsenal instead opted to pay the same price for Atletico Madrid‘s Thomas Partey  just before the window shut but Aouar insists he has no regrets over not making the switch to the Emirates.
