Arsenal are already preparing a significantly improved bid for their primary target Houssem Aouar after Lyon rejected their initial offer earlier this week.

The Gunners are determined to sign the 22-year-old this summer and will reportedly raise their dismissed £32million offer to £36.5m with a further £9m in bonuses in a hope to secure the creative midfielder.

The Frenchman, who has made 130 appearances for Lyon, is paramount to Mikel Arteta's plans as he looks to deploy his team in a 4-3-3 formation this season.
