Aouar releases transfer statement

One man who could potentially be a more realistic target is Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.

Arsenal have been linked to the 23-year-old in the past and it was reported that he had missed pre-season training to force through a move.

He refuted such rumours in a statement on social media, stating that the suggestions were ‘fake news’.
