Gabonese striker Aubameyang who currently plays for Arsenal in the Premier League has stated emphatically that he hopes the Gunners chief sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar.
The Gunners have already made a bid for the Frenchman, but they had it rejected by Lyon chiefs who want the player to remain in France.
According to the report on UK Mirror, Lyon chiefs are requesting for the sum of £55m, but Arsenal were only able to offer £32m which was rejected.
Despite winning their first two games this term in the Premier League, Mikel Arteta and his bosses are still looking for a new midfielder.
Chelsea star Jorginho has also been linked with a move to join Arsenal although the Gunners have not made an official bid.
"He's a very good player. I hope we will be lucky to have these types of players at the club, I'm sure he can bring a lot to us.
"I hope he will come even though he's a Lyonnais,'' Aubameyang explained according to report on UK Mirror.
Meanwhile, Arsenal will be facing Liverpool on Monday night, September 28, in their next Premier League game which is expected to be a tough one.
Both teams have won their first two games of the season and Liverpool will want to keep their impressive home record in the Premier League.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Arsenal who are one of the biggest clubs in the Premier League are now reportedly ready to go for the signing of Chelsea's star, Jorginho before the end of the transfer window.
Mikel Arteta is trying to bolster his squad more this summer in order for the Gunners to compete well in all competitions this term.
The Gunners were initially linked with Atletico Madrid's star Thomas Partey, but the Spanish giants are not ready to do any business with the Gunners.
Jorginho has been playing for Chelsea since last two years after joining the Stamford Bridge landlords from Napoli and has netted 10 goals in 100 games.
