The rate at which players are rejecting Arsenal for other clubs has got Arsenal fans worried, many gooners the world over are beginning to believe this summer is shaping out to be like that of last summer. Jamie Vardy already rejected us, Mkhitaryan who virtually everyone thought we will be signing is now reportedly off to Manchester United.
Now, if reports from France are true, a youngster has now also rejected Arsenal. Few days ago Arsenal were linked with the signing of highly rated Olympic Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar. But reports today suggest the player will staying in France for at least the next few years and will be signing a new contract with Lyon.
Lyon scout Gerard Bonneau recently heaped praises on the player saying: “Houssem has the technical ease, the good vision that allows him to see quickly. He has two feet, can speed up the game, but also can keep the ball at his feet when necessary, besides he has the ability to beat players one against one.
“This is a second striker or a playmaker, but he has this quality of a finisher, capable of scoring and making the last pass.”
Aside Arsenal, Liverpool was also linked with the signing of Houssem. He is rated as one of the best young players in France at the moment and would have been a good addition to Arsenal’s youth team.
