Arsenal fans have reacted to the video and they are desperate to see Aouar at the Emirates Stadium this season.
Its not about individual brilliance as such but what he will add to the team, but he is quite a player

Aouar played a key role in Lyon's march to the Champions League semi-finals last season and was man of the match against Juventus back in February.
Reports emerged on Friday evening that he had agreed terms with Arsenal over a transfer - but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has denied the claims.
Aulas revealed Arsenal had made a bid for a player, but confessed it was far short of Lyon's valuation.
"At Lyon there will be very few departures: for Houssem, Arsenal is much too far from his value," he stated on Twitter. "We count on him to make a big game in Lorient and lead OL in Champions League next year."
Last week also saw Aulas state Arsenal do not have the finances to sign Aouar this summer.
"Financially, Arsenal are like everyone else [in a tricky spot,]" the 71-year-old said.
"And Houssem could say to himself that the best thing would be to stay with us."
Today's sentences by president Aulas confirm the situation about Aouar... nothing has changed now or yesterday. :white_circle::red_circle::point_down:
- He's the first target
- Aouar would like to join #AFC, personal terms not an issue
- NO agreement with OL at the moment
- Deal still on but Aulas wants €60m https://t.co/4lwFFqjuMz

Arsenal have already signed Gabriel and Willian this summer while Dani Ceballos has returned for a second season on loan from Real Madrid.
Do you think Houssem Aouar will sign for Arsenal this summer?
