Lyon star Houssem Aouar is waiting for Arsenal to make a bid for him.
The Gunners were heavily linked with a move for the French international last summer but, in the end, nothing materialised.
However, with him now available for as little as £25 million in the current window, rumours once again began to circulate that he could be headed to North London.
To complicate matters, there is now speculation that Arsenal are about to launch a big money move for Leicester City’s James Maddison.
Arsenal are looking for a creative spark in attacking midfield. Highly promising youngster Emile Smith-Rowe has signed a new long-term deal at the club, but it is recognised that to put all the burden on his shoulders is too much toa sk.
There were hopes that Martin Ødegaard, who had a successful loan spell with the North London club might return, but it now looks like he will be staying with his parent club, Real Madrid.
