English Club, Arsenal are preparing a new bid for Aouar of around €50Million + €5Million in add-ons. Lyon want €60Million, but the clubs are getting closer to a deal.
It is evident that Arsenal are moving for Aouar at the moment, as there has not been much news about Partey recently. I feel this is because Arsenal do not want to trigger Partey’s release clause before securing a deal for Aouar, as getting Partey first would show Lyon that we have a lot of money to spend, so negotiations would be tougher.

It is very clear that the club would like to get both players, and Partey and Aouar are said to want to move to Arsenal. Personal terms would not be a problem for either player (they have already been agreed with Partey).
The club would have to sell a few players first, though, to fee up funds. Torreira and Sokratis will both likely be moving to Italy, and deals could also still be done for Guendouzi and Bellerin (and maybe even Lacazette).
Do you think Arsenal will sign both Partey and Aouar? Comment below
