Arsenal maintaining interest in summer target Houssem Aouar

Arsenal are maintaining an interest in summer target Houssem Aouar.

The 22-year-old Lyon midfielder was heavily linked with a move to the Gunners but a £45million move failed to materialise before the transfer window slammed shut on October 5.

The Premier League giants are still interested in trying to acquire the services of Aouar but face stiff competition from Juventus, according to Tuttosport.

The report claims the Serie A side continue to monitor the central midfielder and Juventus have a good relationship with Lyon.

Aouar, who still has three years remaining on his current deal in France, has insisted he had no regrets over failing to seal a move to Arsenal earlier this month.
