France v Ukraine - International Friendly

Houssem Aouar has insisted he is the ‘reverse of disenchanted’ after a protracted move to Arsenal failed to materialise within the recent transfer window, with both the Gunners and Real Madrid set to make approaches next summer season.

Mikel Arteta’s side had been closely linked with a move for the Frenchman all through the window, seeing a sequence of bids rejected as Lyon held out for nearer to €50m for the playmaker.

With the club’s president Jean-Michel Aulas – a notoriously troublesome negotiator – setting a deadline to Arsenal, the club could not meet their calls for and the plug was pulled on the deal.

Speaking after France’s 7-1 win over Ukraine, during which he made his international debut, Aouar insisted staying at Lyon was an amicable outcome.

“Of course I asked myself all the necessary questions,” he said, through the Daily Mail. “I am in the headspace to have a great season with my club and get back the points that we have lost.

“So of course we’re going to try to do the best season and to try to put the group and the club back in its rightful place, on the top of France. Disappointed? I’m the alternative. I’m at home, within the club that I really like, with my pals and my family. 

“So certainly I have all my bearings and it is giving me even more motivation to have a good season and to bring the club back into the top places in France.”

While the Gunners are anticipated to come back for Aouar next summer season, so too are Madrid. Zinedine Zidane made contact with the player and his representatives before the window closed, but while they had been by no means in a position to move this year, he’s expressed his admiration for his compatriot.

Next summer season is set to be a busy window for Los Blancos, with understanding that Zidane has three French internationals on his wishlist. Eduardo Camavinga, Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba are all being lined up as potential incomings on the Bernabeu.
