Juventus set to battle with Arsenal for Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar in January

Arsenal are still considering the possibility of signing Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar despite missing out on his signature in the recent summer transfer window.

According to several reports doing the rounds in Italy, Juventus are set to enter the race for Aouar to provide stiff competition for the Premier League side.

The Gunners made a massive signing of Thomas Partey from Atletico Madrid and triggered the £45million release clause in his contract.

The France international's performances last season put him on the radar of top European clubs which easily valued him at £54m for his potential suitors.

Italian publication Calciormecato claim that Arsenal are still eager to secure his services and could make a quick move in the January transfer window.

The same report also claims that Juventus will be moving in on him in January while allowing him to remain at his club until the summer.

It is believed that Aouar could be Aaron Ramsey potential replacement but it remains if they will be able to reach an agreement with Lyon.
