Arsenal transfer target Houssem Aouar may not be heading to the Emirates this summer, but he still had time to respond to a cheeky Instagram message from a Gunners supporter. Aouar had been strongly linked with a move to the Emirates in the final few weeks of the transfer window with discussions taking place with Lyon.
Mikel Arteta had been desperate to add some more creativity to his midfield and the 22-year-old has proven to be one of the best in his position.
He had attracted interest from other clubs as well, but Arsenal were seemingly in the best position to make a deal happen.
An opening bid worth a reported £32million was rejected by Lyon at the start of last week, but there was some optimism that an agreement may take place.
Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas had been very open about the prospect of selling Aouar, but only for the right price.
