Transfer deadline day: Aouar confirms final decision on Joining Arsenal

Houssem Aouar has disclosed he will not be leaving his current club, Lyon for Arsenal, because he wants to play a key role in the club’s revival.

Aouar who hails from france was Mikel Arteta’s first priority this summer.

But many offers offered by Arsenal have been rejected for the 22-year-old, with Lyon not willing to cut his price of €60m (£55.5m).

And now the gunners look set to miss out on a deal, as Aouar has confirmed he wants to stay after Lyon’s 1-1 draw with Marseille on Sunday evening.

He said;

“I felt that I can still bring something to this team,” Aouar told Telefoot.

“I wanted to continue the adventure with the club who raised me.

“We must raise our heads because we have to do better.”

However, Arteta is still keen on signing new players  before Monday’s 11pm deadline.
