Arsenal on the hunt for Ghezzal.

Things are said to be hotting up in terms of Arsenal’s pursuit of Olympique Lyon winger, Rachid Ghezzal after the French side signed Memphis Depay from Manchester United this week.

Everton reportedly had a £12m bid for Ghezzal accepted back in the summer, but the player rejected the club and it’s now said he’d be happy with a move to Arsenal, although several other clubs are interested in him.

Arsenal are believed to have met with Ghezzal’s representatives recently but despite Lyon preferring, if they have to let the player go, to get some kind of fee for him and not allowing him to leave the Parc Olympique Lyonnais stadium for free, the recent discussions are said to be for summer and a Bosman transfer.

Arsenal do have several players who play in the same area of the pitch as Ghezzal, but with the need for depth and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s future not secure, this is one to keep an eye on.
