arsenal set friday deadline by lyon president to wrap up their move for 45 rated midfielder aouar

Arsenal have been set a Friday deadline to complete the signing of Houssem Aouar by Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas. 

The Gunners are determined to sign the 22-year-old this summer and are set to raise their dismissed £32million offer to £36.5m with a further £9m in bonuses in a hope to secure the creative midfielder, according to football.london

Aulas is also braced for late bids for forwards Moussa Dembele and Memphis Depay.

He told footmercato.net: ‘I’m thinking of proposing it tomorrow (Tuesday) to Rudi (Garcia) and Juninho, sporting director), because it’s understandable.

‘As of Friday, players who have not left will not leave. We don’t need to sell and, for me, it’s very easy to say that. 

‘After that, we can find agreements with players and clubs for a year to come.’  

Aouar, who has made 130 appearances for Lyon, is paramount to Mikel Arteta’s plans as he looks to deploy his team in a 4-3-3 formation this season.

Despite rejecting their opening offer, Lyon club president Jean-Michel Aulas suggested that the club would be open to selling Aouar for the right price.

He tweeted: ‘For Houssem Arsenal is too far from his value: we are counting on him to play a great match in Lorient and lead OL in CL next year.’

Aouar has been previously valued at £54m but it is believed the Ligue 1 side will lower their asking price amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Aouar is reportedly keen to depart the Ligue 1 club before the end of the transfer window, meaning any deal must be completed before the deadline on October 5.

Twitter goes wild after Edouard Mendy nearly scores a horrendous own goal against Manchester United

twitter goes wild after edouard mendy nearly scores a horrendous own goal against manchester united

Chelsea can’t seem to catch a break from goalkeeping drama, with even summer signing Edouard Mendy keeping Blues fans on the edge of their seats. 

Frank Lampard confirmed Mendy has replaced west London flop Kepa Arrizabalaga as his new No 1 keeper after a £22m move from Rennes, and started against Manchester United on Saturday. 

He almost made Lampard regret that decision 29 minutes into the Old Trafford clash, going horrendously close to scoring an own-goal.

The Blues were cooly playing the ball across the back-line before Kurt Zouma rolled a pass back to the 28-year-old, who took a touch and looked to find Thiago Silva. 

Instead Mendy mis-hit the ball which rolled across the face of goal, coming frighteningly close to the goal-line and out for a corner to the hosts. 

The Senegalese star kept cool but Blues fans certainly didn’t, with @markstevens_cfc writing: ‘Did someone else feel that small heart attack produced by Mendy? Just asking…’

Arsenal fan @AFCDylan_ added: ‘Mendy been watching Cech a little too closely in training,’ pointed out the likeness to a scare the Chelsea legend had for the Gunners.  

Now a director at the club, Cech ended his career with the Blues’ London rivals as his powers faded – an Emirates stint Gooners largely prefer to forget. 

In Arsenal’s opening match of 2018-19 against Manchester City, Matteo Guendouzi knocked the ball back to Cech only for the Czech to scuff his pass aimed at Hector Bellerin, skimming to post even closer than Mendy’s effort.
