Arsenal transfer rumours: Lyon’s Houssem Aouar stance, Gunners line up Emi Martinez replacement


Arsenal have added two new players since the summer transfer window opened.

Both Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes have made the move to the Emirates Stadium this summer from Chelsea and Lille respectively.

But Arsenal are not done in the transfer market there, with Mikel Arteta keen to add further to his squad ahead of the deadline next month.

The Gunners have been linked to names such as Thomas Partey and Houssem Aouar, but may also look to trim their squad as they prepare for the new season.

With that in mind, here are the latest transfer rumours from the Emirates Stadium.

Lyon’s Aouar stance

Lyon are demanding a fee of €60m (£54.4m) for midfielder Houssem Aouar and won’t entertain any swap deal amid Arsenal interest, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano .

The Gunners are said to have seen a bid including Matteo Guendouzi turned down by the French club.

However, Romano does claim that the midfielder would ‘love’ to move to the Premier League this summer.

Arsenal have reportedly not made any new bids for Aouar.

Arsenal braced for new Martinez bid

Arsenal are expecting a third bid from newly-promoted Aston Villa for goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez, according to the Daily Mail .

The Gunners have already rejected two bids from the Midlands club, with the latest said to be in the region of £15 million. .

However, Arsenal are reportedly looking for a fee of around £20 million.

Martinez has also reportedly turned down a contract offer to stay at the Emirates Stadium for longer, meaning that Villa may be encouraged to continue to push for the goalkeeper.

Gunners line up Martinez replacement

Should they fail to keep hold of Martinez, Arsenal will be on the lookout for a replacement, but they may have already found their man.

According to the Daily Mail, Brentford goalkeeper David Raya is thinking of handing in a transfer request in order to try and force a move to Arsenal this summer.

Brentford so far are said to be refusing to take part in discussions over the possibility of selling the goalkeeper, but their hands could be forced by the player.
