22-year-old Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar will be leaving Lyon this summer with a host of elite European clubs vying for his signature, according to L'Equipe.
The playmaker has starred in the Champions League this season in Lyon's surprise run to the semifinals where they were eliminated last night by Bayern Munich.
it's reported that the Holy offer that Lyon has received for Aouar has come from Arsenal. The French club hasn't responded to this approach which reportedly involves a player plus cash deal with Matteo Guendouzi mentioned.
Mikel Arteta is a big fan of the player and Edu has been in touch with Lyon's sporting director Juninho. Arsenal will face competition from Juventus and Man City for the player's signature, whose value has shot up from €40m to €60m after impressive displays in Europe.
