Mikel Arteta is ready to give the Frenchman the keys to his side’s engine room. Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, whose contract is up in 2023, looks set to be granted the exit he craves, with Arsenal still looking the likeliest destination.
Mikel Arteta plans to use him in a 4-3-3 formation as the foremost central player, where Arsenal are crying out for a player capable of operating comfortably in between the lines of midfield and attack.
It would also offer Aouar the opportunity to play in a system and position tailor-made to his game.
With Juventus wanting to sign the Lyon Star too.
