Tue 29 December 2020 | 13:26

Though the Lyon player has been linked to the Gunners for several months now, it is reported that the team has changed their mind about signing the player.

According to

The Athletic

,

Arsenal

will not reopen the negotiations over

Lyon

midfielder,

Houssem Aouar

, in January transfer window as Arteta decided to look for new players elsewhere.  

Though the Gunners hoped to sign the 22-year-old in the summer, their offer was rejected since it was believed to be below the player’s actual worth. This event led Arsenal to sign

Atletico Madrid

player,

Thomas Partey

, instead.

In return Aouar expressed his happiness with Lyon, saying:

“I am very happy to be here, I took the decision to stay with the club that formed me, I savour every day I have here."

After giving up on the Lyon player, Arsenal seem to have shifted their attention into signing

,

Bayer Leverkusen

Julian Brandt

, and

Sevilla

Joan Jordan
