Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang throws his weight behind a summer move for Lyon's Houssem Aouar, for whom the Gunners have already seen one bid rejected.

Arsenal captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has urged the club to sign Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar this summer.

Aouar has been persistently linked with a move to the Emirates Stadium in recent weeks, with manager Mikel Arteta understood to have earmarked him as a top midfield target along with Thomas Partey.

The Gunners have already seen one bid for the 22-year-old rejected, but they are expected to return with an improved offer and Aubameyang has given the pursuit his backing.

"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," Aubameyang is quoted as saying by The Mirror.

"I hope he will come even though he's a Lyonnais."

Arsenal have also been linked with Chelsea's Jorginho in their search for a new midfielder before the transfer deadline.
