Arsenal will soon make an offer of over €40million (£36m) for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, according to reports. French outlet Telefoot Chaine claim Aouar has become Mikel Arteta's priority signing for the remainder of the transfer window. The Gunners have already seen a player-plus cash bid turned down for the 22-year-old.

Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi was offered in part-exchange earlier this summer.

But Lyon did not view Guendouzi as the right "profile" of player they wanted to bring to the club.

However, Arsenal are now set to return with another offer to prise Aouar away from Lyon.

Earlier in the window it was reported Lyon were asking for around £54m for Aouar - considerably more than Arsenal are set to offer.

Aouar would be Arsenal's third major signing of the window following acquisitions of Willian and Gabriel Magalhaes.

The former France under-21 international has spent the entirety of his professional career at Lyon.

He has scored 16 goals in 99 Ligue 1 appearances for the French side.

Aouar was sent off in his last appearance for Lyon on Tuesday during the 2-1 league defeat at Montpellier.

“I think they need a little bit of steel in the middle of the pitch, so I think Partey would be a very good signing for Arsenal," Darke told ESPN FC.

“I know they’re very keen, but they can’t seem to get that deal done.

“They’ve got [Dani] Ceballos back of course from Real Madrid, and he did well in the back end of last season, but in a more creative way.

“Both are good players, but I think of the two, I’d say Partey.”
