Arsenal, Forest alerted as Lyon seek to cash in on Aouar

Arsenal are eyeing Lyon midfielder Houssem Aouar for the January market.

The Daily Express says Aouar is out of contract at the end of this season, and the Ligue 1 club know he could swan off in the summer on a free transfer.

Quoted as a £50m purchase two years ago, the Gunners were then unable to negotiate a deal for the French international.

Several Premier League clubs including Nottingham Forest and Fulham were linked with the 24-year-old in the summer, and were told he was available for as little as £12.6m with Lyon looking to cash in.

That figure is likely to be even less once the transfer window reopens.
