He could just be Arsenal’s first January signing



Houssem Aouar

Emerging reports hint that Lyon star Houssem Aouar might be the first January signing by North London side Arsenal and he would be expected to walk straight into the team.

Houssem Aouar has been on the radar of the Gunners for weeks with speculation that a bid would be submitted for him ahead of the January window and that could just be happening anytime soon with reports making round.

The 20-year-old was a strong Liverpool target some two years ago when he was to graduate to the senior team but the French side refused to let him leave the club.

With latest reports, they seem ready to cash in on him by listening to offers from interested clubs of which Arsenal remain a top suitor.

The North London side are desperate to secure a replacement for departing Wales international Aaron Ramsey and have tipped Houssem Aouar to be the best person to undertake the role.

Aaron Ramsey’s contract with the Gunners runs into the last months and will expire at the end of the season. He has been told he would be allowed to leave as a free player as he failed to agree on a weekly wage with the club.

However, Houssem Aouar who is valued at around £35 million could be the best replacement for Ramsey at the Emirates.
