Arsenal to offer €40m-plus for Lyon star Houssem Aouar

Arsenal will soon make a ‘concrete offer’ for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar, according to Téléfoot.

Back in May, it was reported that Aouar would definitely leave OL in the summer, with Juventus and Manchester City linked.

He remains a Lyon player and has appeared in both of Lyon’s opening games of the new Ligue 1 season.

But Aouar, who received a straight red card against Montpellier on Tuesday, could soon get his big move.

Telefoot reports that Arsenal are readying a bid of ‘over €40m’ for the gifted central midfielder.

Gunners boss Mikel Arteta considers Aouar a priority signing before the transfer window closes.

Lyon valued Aouar at €70m earlier this year, but that was before the Coronavirus pandemic and its damaging economic effects.

It remains to be seen if the €40m-plus offer from Arsenal will be enough to prise Aouar away from OL.

Despite his youth, Aouar has already made 139 appearances for the French club with a return of 24 goals and 27 assists.
