Signing Houssem Aouar would be a great signing for Arsenal

With the January transfer window fast approaching, many Premier League clubs will be looking to make some additions next month and Arsenal are one of the club’s that simply has to. 

Although Arsenal have put together an incredibly impressive 21-game unbeaten run, the Gunners have been hit by a recent wave of injuries. Both Rob Holding and Aaron Ramsey picked up injuries against Manchester United, with the former set to miss the rest of the season.

The injuries leave Arsenal even weaker at the back, while in midfield and on the wing, the board needs to reinvest in the squad.

Ramsey’s future is completely up in the air at the moment as he could leave the club but also remain after putting in a series of solid performances. However, according to France Football via the Metro Arsenal are interested in Lyon’s £31.5 million rated midfielder, Houssem Aouar.

The Breakdown

The incredibly talented midfielder has been superb for Lyon this season and has formed one of the best young midfield partnerships in Europe with Tanguy NDombele. At just 20, he has already become an essential player for the side and has scored five goals in Ligue 1 this season.

Talented with the ball at his feet and able to drive forward while also being able to pick a pass, Arsenal will face stiff competition for the Lyon academy graduate who has attracted interest from Manchester City.

If Ramsey does leave the club, Aouar would be a superb piece of business from Arsenal and he could turn out to be a future star in the league.
