Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas insists that Arsenal have to more if they are to meet the asking price for Houssem Aouar.
The 22-year-old is believed to be keen on a move away from Lyon this summer and the Ligue 1 side are eager to sell him provided the right offer comes on their table.
Aulas insists that Arsenal are yet to meet the asking price and that Aouar could potentially remain at the club this season.
Transferts : Houssem Aouar (OL) d'accord avec Arsenal - @OL :il y aura très peu de départs: pour Houssem Arsenal est bcp trop éloigné de sa valeur: on compte sur lui pour faire un grand match à Lorient et mener l’OL en CL l’année prochaine 👍 https://t.co/8SUKIHLcLJ— Jean-Michel AULAS (@JM_Aulas) September 26, 2020
Aulas took to social media to set the record straight: “There will be a few departures.
“For Houssem Aouar, Arsenal are too far away from his value.
“We are counting on him to play a big game against Lorient and lead us into the Champions League next year.”
