Lyon are expecting a new offer from Arsenal for Houssem Aouar this evening and have also received an enquiry about the player from Juventus, according to Mohamed Bouhafsi of French media outlet RMC Sport.
Juventus got in touch with Lyon to find out what their asking price for the 22 year old was. They also wanted to know the status of Lyon’s negotiations with Arsenal regarding the transfer of Aouar. The Italian side have been linked with a move for the French midfielder for the last few months but are yet to make a concrete offer for his services.
Arsenal are keen on bringing Aouar to the Emirates and will want to complete this deal sooner rather than later. Lyon were initially hoping to receive £53.5 million for their star midfielder but have realised that this is not a realistic valuation in today’s financial environment. The French club are willing to sell Aouar for £45.5 million.
The Gunners view Aouar as one of their top transfer targets and see him as an integral part of their new midfield. The 22 year old is a Lyon academy graduate. He joined the French club’s academy at the age of 11 and made his debut for the senior side in 2017. The French midfielder has scored 24 goals and provided 27 assists in 140 games for Lyon.
