David Ginola has tipped Lyon’s Houssem Aouar to go in for the position of Mesut Ozil at Arsenal.
Recall that Arsenal failed to land the French playmaker , Aouar after they chased himr all summer.
Several offers from the Gunners for the 22-year-old was rejected , with Lyon demanding a €60million (£55.5m) fee.
Mikel Arteta eventually landed Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid in a €50million (£45m) deal on deadline day.
But Former Tottenham Hotspur player, has asked the club to go back in for Aouar.
“He’s definitely the type of player that Arsenal fans would love to watch in the middle of the park, that’s for sure,” Ginola told Sky Sports.
“If he wants to stay at Lyon, that’s his concern, he’s still a young player. To replace Ozil, I think he’s the best choice for Arsenal.”
