At Last, Midfielder Has Agreed to Join Arsenal

Arteta is known to be desperate in landing an experienced and creative midfielder who will be an ideal backup to inexperienced Smith Rowe this summer. The club has been linked to majority of quality mildfielders since the start of the transfer window.

However good news to the fans after the club's long term target Houssem Aouar has finally agreed on a move that will land him at Emirates. According to Express reports, the player's agent is claimed to be keen on negotiations with the Gunners on a possible switch to premier league. The 23year-old agent is reportedly furious on Arsenal amid Maddison's move, this is because the Englishman is a stumbling barrier to Arsenal in pursuing Aouar.

Aouar has always been on Arsenal list of transfer targets and it's clear now that a move has been guaranteed. It's now upon Arsenal to make an official proposal with Lyon valuing their asset at £25m this summer from around £55m in the previous window, mainly due to lack of European competition.

Meanwhile, Arsenal offer of players-plus-cash for Maddison has been rejected with the foxes set for atleast £70m for their playmaker. The club had offers Reiss Nelson and Maitland Niles in a deal to sign James Maddison.

In your opinion, should Arsenal turn to Aouar as Maddison's alternative?
