Lyon reject €36m bid from Arsenal for Houssem Aouar

Lyon have rejected an offer of €36m from Arsenal for midfield star Houssem Aouar, according to RMC Sport.

Arsenal’s bid falls well short of what Lyon’s asking price of around €50m for the 22-year-old.

The Gunners made their proposal on Friday and will return at the start of the week with an improved bid of €38m.

But OL president Jean-Michel Aulas will almost certainly reject that offer too.

RMC also claims that contrary to a report on Friday, Aouar has not yet agreed personal terms with Arsenal.

With an agreement between the clubs still far away, Aouar is not yet at the stage of discussing a contract with Arsenal.

Aouar is fully focused on Lyon’s game against Lorient on Sunday as the two clubs continue to negotiate his future.
