Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged the club to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The Gunners are eager to secure a deal for Aouar before the transfer window closes on October 5, and Aubameyang has described the 22-year-old as “a very good player”.
Mikel Arteta’s side are due to make an improved £ 34million offer for Aouar this week, but have been warned that they will not exceed their £ 45million value by Lyon President Jean-Michel Aulas.

“He’s a very good player,” Aubameyang said, as reported by The Mirror. I hope we will be lucky to have this type of player at the club, I am sure he can bring us a lot.

If he were to join, the Frenchman would help provide the Arsenal midfielder with much needed creativity.
Aubameyang recently pledged his future at Arsenal, signing a three-year contract and bringing in a player of Aouar’s quality would help justify his decision to stay.
Aouar made his 100th Ligue 1 appearance for Lyon on Sunday as his side drew 1-1 with Lorient.
Arsenal have also been looking for a deal with Atletico Madrid midfielder Thomas Partey, but right now a deal for Aouar looks much more achievable.
