Probably shat over us and said we are not good enough and now come with their hands out asking pleaseI get the feeling Auoar and his agent really annoyed Arsenal last year and they don't want to deal with him unless they can't get what they think are higher rated targets. They are basically begging for a move out. it seems.
Yep him and Arteta is match made in hell. Arteta would drive his value down to 5 million after banning him from the training center and demand his picture be removed from the club websiteNobody wanting to sign you is the main thing used to bash most of our players yet it strangely doesn’t apply here lol.
Im a fan of this player but looking at the guys who have been ostracised at the club, I couldn’t see Auoar and Mikel working out somehow.
He’s definitely done with Lyon/Ligue one though, the body language and overall demeanour looked disinterested at times (in my opinion, I’m sure someone will disagree).
It's got to be something to do with his or his teams behaviour when we were close last year. Think he's just behaved in a way which has put the club off returning with a new bid. If we are desperate we'll probably go back in for him again.There must be a good reason we haven't jumped on this, available for an affordable price, ticks all the boxes profile wise as he can play 10 or 8, or even slightly wide I believe. Different to ESR and can compliment him. He was also one of our top targets last summer.
Yet for some reason it seems like our interest has cooled massively. He had a weird season with Lyon and it seems as if his reputation has taken a massive hit. There must be something seriously off-putting to not only ourselves but other clubs who were supposedly keeping an eye on his development a year or so ago
Completely forgot about that guy. Can't believe we panicked and nearly blew £90m on him. Luckily he changed his mind on leaving.As others have pointed out this is a bizarre one where we were linked with the player at double the fee last season and now seem unwilling to make it happen at half the price. Unless he’s gone full Thomas Lemar I really don’t get it.
