The latest reports making round has revealed that North London outfit Arsenal are very keen on the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit, Lyon midfielder, Houssem Aouar this term.

Some journalists close to the North London outfit have confirmed Arsenal’s interest in the midfielder and the possibility of signing him up this summer transfer window.

Houssem Aouar is one of the hottest players in the transfer window after his impressive performance for Lyon in the French Ligue 1 this season. There is no doubt about his quality to make a good career in the English Premier League.

Meanwhile, French outlet L’Equipe reports that the French Ligue 1 outfit is waiting for an offer for Houssem Aouar as they consider cashing in on him. The report also adds that Lyon will not take less than £54 million for the highly-rated 21-year-old.

However, it was clearly stated in the report that the North London club is not alone in the chase of the player as Man City’s Pep Guardiola is also embroiled in a transfer tussle.

Pep Guardiola already saw Houssem Aouar and confirmed his quality when his team faced Lyon last season in the Champions League and singled him out for praise. He will be facing competition from Real Madrid and Juventus for the midfielder.
