North London club, Arsenal are reported to be in the chase of French Ligue 1 outfit Lyon star Houssem Aouar in this summer transfer window but of course, they are yet to submit a bid for him.

Houssem Aouar has impressed with the Ligue 1 club and has attracted interest from a number of clubs but the Gunners are being tipped to snap him up this summer window.

However, it is claimed that the North London club is yet to make any bid for the star player as Lyon are still waiting for offers from interested suitors.

French outlet L’Equipe reports that the bid for Houssem Aouar has now been left very open to all interested suitors as Lyon are forced to part ways with him to be able to cushion the effect of the coronavirus pandemic on the club.

English Premier League club, Man City are reported to be the only major contestants for Houssem Aouar with Pep Guardiola also making efforts to work with the 22-year-old after his side played against Lyon in the Champions League last season.

Howbeit, the Gunners will be ready to meet with the £54 million asking price if they wish to have Houssem Aouar at the Emirates Stadium next season.
