    Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has played down rumors that Houssem Aouar may be on his way to Arsenal and insists the club still rely on the new campaign midfielder

    Aouar, 22, is considered one of the best young midfielders in world football having played on his way to Lyon to the Champions League semi-finals last season and his outstanding performances in the competition prompted the European elite to stand up and take notice

    Mikel Arteta is keen to step up his options in the middle of the park, and Lyon chief Juninho has confirmed that Arsenal technical director Edu made contact on a possible Aouar deal earlier this month

    It is understood that Lyon have lowered their valuation of Aouar from £ 55million to between £ 36million and £ 41million, but it appears Arsenal are still a long way from the new price the Ligue 1 club are asking for

    Atletico Madrid’s Thomas Partey remains firmly on Arsenal’s radar and Chelsea midfielder Jorginho has become a possible target this week

    Asked Friday about Jorginho’s ties to Arsenal, Arteta replied: “We are always ready to improve our team
