    So according to France Football, the closest the player came to leaving was for Juventus just before the window closed, deal fell through in the end. Arsenal made one bid, which was way off the asking price and never came back in, cutting off all contact weeks before the window closed.

    Do we bash Edu? I mean if he hasn’t got the money, what can he do? He would’ve made a bigger bid had the money been sitting there, you would think.

    Edu is trying to get AFC another retired Brazilian, isn't he?

    Or maybe we dont just believe everything we read especially from France football.

    Or maybe he played with a bunch of monsters who were fast and strong or fast and skillful and decided that he is going to build a plan that encompasses those players.

    Maybe, just maybe, Aouar didn't fit into the right category and maybe we are looking for more devastation.

    We made at least one bid and going by reports, Arteta is a huge fan of the player. We got priced out and the player is betting on himself to join a bigger club next summer. That’s all there is to it

    Taking all these after the fact accounts with a massive pinch of salt.

    Anyone can feed some BS to these places like 'France Football' could be us, could be Aouar, could be Aulas

    Whoever it is its the version of events that they want out there

    even so, we should not pass up an opportunity to sing a potential world class talent who can fetch a huge profit.

    Anyone who doesn't think we really wanted him are stupid. He's a creative central mid which is who we wanted. He was far too overpriced in the end hence why the deal didn't happen. Straight facts, nothing more nothing less.

    Maybe they should go for him in January even if he plays the full season at Lyon or just sign Benrahma. All I know is CM needs a little bit of spark and we must address it if we are to improve as a team.

    Benrahma is a left winger.

    Szoboszlai fits that description. He's physically much better than Aouar.

    Pretty much this. Until we are back in champo our big club status is definitely diminished

    IMO we will go back in for him next summer, n even tho we aint in ucl n might not be next summer. We r still a giant. We will either get him or some other very good midfielder.

    Ask yourself this, how often do you see when a big player gets offered the chance to play for Arsenal they reject it. Aubameyang, Özil, Partey, Aouar, Sanchez etc. We just have only recently gone in for these players. We usually take the cheap option out. Like even Upamecano, one of the best young CB's in the world wanted to join at one point. You all underestimate our club, like if we wanted a Sancho and paid the money I doubt very much he would reject us

    Absolutely this. Guy is younger, considerably cheaper and has much more end product than Auoar. Might be more attacking than our usual CMs so just play him in front of Partey and Xhaka/Ceballos and watch him go to town.

    I hope we go for him he fits our profile perfectly.

    In my opinion, Auoar has question marks over his mentality. Sure he likes the bright lights and TV cameras in the CL, perhaps because they were underdogs they played with more freedom. But his stats don't suggest he's lit up Ligue 1, despite the lack of quality elsewhere (other than PSG ofc).

    Szoboszlai turns up consistently in league matches and when the world is watching him. Auoar might enjoy the bright lights of the Emirates, but I can't see him fancying it on a cold night at Bramall Lane or a hostile atmosphere at Anfield. But I can see Szoboszlai relishing the challenge, rather than shrinking into the background.

    I'm not sure i want this guy now. His head has been turned by Madrid and I'm not sure his style is enough or right for us. He's too off the ball imo and we need someone who gets on it and puts themselves about (playfully) in the middle of the park. Aouar will be okay if we upgrade other areS but on hi own, I. Just not sure. We might have dodged a bullet here.
