Campbell calls for Houssem Aouar bid in January

Ex-Arsenal forward Kevin Campbell has called on the club to make another bid to secure the signature of Lyon playmaker Houssem Aouar in January.

The Gunners are failed to convince Lyon to part ways with the highly-rated 22-year-old in the summer with the Ligue 1 side refusing to budge on their £54m asking price.

However, with Mikel Arteta’s side looking desperately short in the creative department, Campbell believes Aouar could be the perfect player to breathe new life into the midfield.

‘Look, it is a requirement for Arsenal to bring great players to the football club,’ Kevin told Football Insider.

‘We need players who are committed, who have talent and can express their talent. Aouar is a player that Arsenal have been coveting but they could not get the job done in the summer.

‘Lyon do not have any European ambitions this season so who knows whether the deal can be done in January. If it can be done and Arsenal can get him – go and get him. There should be no messing around.

‘But the Lyon president is a bit of a character so I am not sure if he would sanction the deal in January. I do though believe that he is still on Arsenal’s radar.’
