EPL: Arteta to build Arsenal team around Aouar

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, wants to build the team’s midfield around Lyon’s Houssem Aouar, according to ESPN.
The 22-year-old has become one of the best young midfield prospects in Europe, following his performances for the Ligue 1 outfit.
Aouar has attracted interest from Juventus, Real Madrid and Manchester City.
But Arsenal have made the Frenchman their priority target this summer window.
Arteta views Aouar as a key part of the midfield trio he plans to use in a 4-3-3 system with Arsenal.
The Gunners had already gone for Aouar which was rejected by Lyon, after they offered cash plus Matteo Guendouzi.
Lyon are not interested in a deal that includes Guendouzi and are demanding a €60 million (£55.5m) fee.
