Arsenal will be looking to continue their strong run of form all the way through to the end of the Premier League season, something that will give them the chance at reaching the top four.
So far, the Gunners have defined the odds with a mammoth unbeaten run that is much due to the brilliance of manager Unai Emery.
The former PSG boss has been influential in guiding Arsenal towards the top four in the Premier League yet he could be helped with a set of quality reinforcements in January.
A midfielder touted to reach the top of the game is Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
Aouar, who is valued at £31.5 million on Transfermarkt, is now surely on the radar of many top European teams after an excellent performance against Manchester City in the Champions League.
The 20-year-old, alongside Tanguy Ndombele, have brought a lot of attention to themselves in the heart of midfield with Lyon, hence why Arsenal would have to move very quickly to secure his services.
With five goals and four assists to his name so far this season, Aouar is not just a great contributor defensively but in attack, he has the ability to provide his team with the tools to score.
The France U21 star would be a brilliant long-term replacement for Aaron Ramsey, who is more than likely to leave Arsenal in the summer when his contract runs out.
The anguish of losing such an influential playmaker will be short lived if Houssem Aouar comes in to replace Aaron Ramsey, as he is a player that could bring success to the Emirates.
