Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas clears the record on Houssem Aoaur's Arsenal move

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas insists that Arsenal have to more if they are to meet the asking price for Houssem Aouar.

Aouar has reportedly agreed to a contract with Arsenal after the Gunners made an offer of €35m for his services.

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.

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.”
