Arsenal legend Ian Wright has told current gaffer of the Gunner Mikel Arteta to make sure in his efforts to sign 22-year-old Lyon and French midfielder Houssem Aouar in January next year.

Ian Wright is of the views that Aouar will be of great help to Thomas Partey in the midfield for Arsenal if the Gunners' chiefs should bring him to the Emirates stadium.

Arsenal were initially interested in signing Houssem Aouar during the last transfer window, but the Gunners chiefs were unable to meet up with Lyon's asking price.

Houssem Aouar has so far been impressive for Lyon this season scoring four goals and an assist already for the French giants.

Wright has been impressed by the signing of Partey but he still thinks Arsenal are crying out for more creativity in the midfield.

According to the report on Metro, Wright explained that signing Aouar will be of great advantage for Arsenal next year.

'‘It is important because it’s something that’s continually labelled towards Arsenal, that they can’t beat the big-six teams.
‘'If he can continue to improve, like players improve with his coaching, and then he’s then able to add to that with Aouar who they’re trying to get in the midfield alongside Partey then you’ve got someone who can create for the forwards.
'‘So it’s all looking good and winning games like this will only stand you in good stead and give confidence to the team.’'

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Willian who is a Brazilian footballer playing for Arsenal has stated clearly that he is still learning many things at the Emirates stadium under the Gunners' manager Mikel Arteta.

The 32-year-old joined the North London side from Chelsea during the transfer window before the start of the ongoing season and he is now adapting to the Gunners' styles of football.

Since creating two assists for Arsenal in their first game of the term against Fulham, Willian has not been able to make significant impact and he is yet to score a Premier League goal for the Gunners.

Willian started his professional football career at Corinthians where he played 20 games and scored two goals before moving to Europe.

He played 234 games for Chelsea netting 37 goals between 2013-2020 before joining Arsenal where he has so far played five games.
