Houssem Aouar ‘wanted by Arsenal, Manchester City and Juventus’

Arsenal, Manchester City and Juventus are all interested in Lyon attacking midfielder Houssem Aouar. 

The 22-year-old has impressed during the Ligue 1 season and has especially caught the eye of City boss Pep Guardiola, who adores the player, according to L’Equipe. 

However, after City secured the services of Ferran Torres from Valencia, they are unlikely to continue their pursuit of Aouar this summer.

Lyon are hoping to get around £54million for the sale of Aouar, but that could be tricky with the financial implications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

All the sides hoping to snap him up, with wait until the Champions League is over to know more about how they want to recruit for the following season.

Aouar is under contract at the Ligue 1 side until 2023 and has scored nine goals along with seven assists this season.

The Frenchman is likely to start as Lyon face potential suitors Juventus in the second leg of their Champions League Round of 16 tie.

CEO Jean-Michael Aulas is open to keeping Aouar, but is aware a strong performance on Friday night could see interest in him rise.
