Houssem Aouar has asked Arsenal fans to stop bombarding his friend on Instagram with messages about a possible move to the Gunners this summer.

Reports this week have claimed that Arsenal have reignited their interest in signing the Lyon midfielder this summer after failing to complete a deal last year.

Arsenal failed with a £32 million bid last summer as Lyon were demanding a €60m (£55.5m) transfer fee.

Aouar was also understood to have reservations about joining Arsenal as they were not competing in the Champions League.

But Lyon have drastically lowered their valuation of Aouar to just £25m, while the midfielder is said to be more open to a possible move to the Guners this summer.

Naturally, this has raised excitement levels among Arsenal fans, who were convinced a deal was being completed in London this week.

Arsenal supporters believed Aouar’s agent was in London after one of his closest friends posted a series of stories on Instagram of his visit to England’s capital.

Aouar’s friend was then inundated with messages from Arsenal fans who were keen to know the latest on the potential deal.

But the Lyon midfielder has now cleared up the misunderstanding, stressing that his friend is not his real brother or his representative.

Aouar is currently in pre-season training with Lyon and earlier this week he was forced to deny claims that he was trying to force through a move away from the French club.

The 23-year-old missed the first five days of Lyon’s training sessions but revealed that he has been in hospital due to illness.
